Everton’s asking price to see Sandro Ramirez leave the club permanently this summer has been revealed.
According to Real Valladolid director Miguel Angel Gomez, the Blues are demanding a minimum fee of €5 million (£4.4m) if the La Liga outfit want to take the Spaniard off their hands (relayed via @EvertonNewsFeed).
Should Everton keep or sell Sandro Ramirez this summer?
“Those are figures that Real Valladolid cannot afford,” Gomez told Cadena Ser (via Sport Witness). The club are reportedly keen on seeing Sandro stay but finances are a serious problem at the moment and according to a previous report, Valladolid cannot accommodate both Everton’s man and fellow high-earner Hatem Ben Arfa.
If the Blues set the bar too high, they risk the Spanish side pulling completely out of the deal and Everton will need to find new suitors for Sandro or be forced to keep hold of him.
It seems Toffees fans are eager to see the back of the striker and are willing to let him go for any amount. One supporter in particular has tweeted they ‘wouldn’t pay £5 for him’ and added that Sandro is ‘totally useless’.
This perhaps understandable, given he has scored just one goal in 16 total appearances for the Merseyside outfit…

I think the club would let him leave for nothing if someone could cover his salary.

It’s absolutely insane that he’s still ours

It’s obviously a typing error, were only asking €5

Honestly, taking £500,000 so that they could pay his wages would be smart business. You know he will expect and demand a high wage. He’s probably grown accustomed to the £120k-a-week he’s been hauling in the past few years.
