Villarreal CF | Betis | Launched for the loan of Lo Celso

The Argentine, as he did with Betis, has recovered his best version in LaLiga at the hands of Villarreal

the young argentinian Lo Celso became the biggest transfer from Betis by a footballerwhen in the summer of 2019 he transferred him to Tottenham in an intelligent move for which the English team paid 16 million euros as a transfer for, months later, in January 2020, end up exercising the first of the two purchase options available to the ‘Spurs’, worth 32 million euros plus variables. The second window, scheduled for June, was worth 40 kilos.

With this movement, Betis achieved an economic benefit of more than 20 million euros in just one year for a footballer who, in addition, performed at an excellent ethical level, adding 16 goals and five assists. He dribbled, also Betis, the percentage of the surplus value of a future sale that PSG had saved when the Verdiblanco team signed the Argentine.

In England, Lo Celso never fully found his placeadding 84 games over two and a half seasons in which he lived continuous saw teeth and in which he only signed eight goals and six assists. Nothing to do with his season as a bético, hence en January he decided to return to LaLiga with Unai Emery’s Villarreal CF, with whom he has become a regular to the point of having participated in all the matches that the ‘Yellow Submarine’ has played since it arrived at the La Cerámica Stadium.

Tottenham “paid a lot of money” to Betis for Lo Celso, recalls Conte

The good work of Lo Celso with Villarreal has not gone unnoticed in Londonwhere Antonio Conte himself, coach of the ‘Spurs’ team, has referred to it, also remembering Bryan Gil, also on loan from Tottenham in Spain, specifically at Valencia CF. “In the first place, I am very happy with his great performance. He needed to play regularly, with continuity. That is why he went to Spain in a league that he knows very well because he played very well and Tottenham bought him when he played in that league. Going back there and showing that he is in good form is good for everyone, especially since Tottenham paid a lot of money for him.. I am very happy because he is playing all the matches, he is showing that he is a good player, but I never said that he is not a good player”, said Conte about Lo Celso.

Conte’s praise, logically, has not gone unnoticed for Villarreal CF, where they do not have a purchase option on the Argentine Giovani Lo Celso, who would have to return to London next summer, having contract with Tottenham until 2025.

Despite this, in Castellón they are very happy with the performance offered by Lo Celso as yellow, hence The intention, now, is to open new talks with Tottenham to try to keep Lo Celso next season, getting him on loan for one more year. The Argentine, in principle, would not see him with bad eyes, since he is happy in Spain and his wish would be not to return to England.

As reported on his Twitter account the journalist Fabrizio Romanomarket Specialist, Unai Emery would be key to closing the future agreement, just as it was in January, when Olympique de Lyon was also interested in Lo Celso’s loan and the loan was quite advanced between clubs.
