Contract rebel Andre Carrillo appears to be ready to put an end to his Sporting career in 2016, as he enters the final year of his professional contract to the club.
CARRILLO PUTS CLUBS ON RED ALERT
The Peruvian international is yet to accept talks of a renewal with Sporting, with sources close to both the club and the player’s agent adamant that he has no intentions of staying.
For now, it appears Carrillo will choose to run down his contract with the club before making any decision on his future, as Leicester City are the only club reported to have tabled a bid.
Reports in Spain also indicate that Valencia and Sevilla are keeping a watchful eye on the 24-year-old’s situation, meanwhile AS Monaco are also weighing up a transfer which would see Carrillo playing under Leonardo Jardim once more.
The situation comes across as a very complex one for Jorge Jesus and his team as they face up to the prospect of losing one of their very best players of the 2014/2015 season.
An eventual Carrillo transfer is complicated further by his third party ownership, meaning Sporting would receive just 25% of any transfer fee agreed.
For this reason, Sporting are attempting to drive the player’s price slightly higher than expected, but in return have received little encouragement from those interested in a player with less than a year left on his contract.
Should they fail to agree a deal for Carrillo’s exit this summer, so far the most probable scenario, the Peruvian winger will be allowed to agree pre-contract terms with any club he wishes in January 2016.
