Sandro Ramirez could be looking at staying in Spain beyond this season, but Real Valladolid have a financial conundrum.
According to El Norte de Castilla (via Sport Witness), the La Liga side have not ruled out the option of extending Sandro’s loan but the cost of wages prohibit the club keeping him and Hatem Ben Arfa.
Due to the impact of current events, Valladolid have been hit where it hurts, in their bank balance. The club’s current situation reportedly means that they cannot keep both Ben Arfa and Sandro beyond the summer as ‘figures would not add up’.
Should Everton keep or sell Sandro Ramirez this summer?
As a result, the Everton man must consider lowering his wages if he wants to remain in Spain and keep earning minutes on the pitch. Although Sandro has scored just four goals for his loan side this season, Valladolid are keen on prolonging his time with them.
According to Spotrac, the Spaniard is currently on £3.38million per year, which boils down to £65,000 a week. There have been no indications on whether Sandro has considered taking a pay cut, but whilst he’s almost guaranteed a place in the starting lineup, it’s an option he should consider.
Everton have made it clear they do not have plans for him at Goodison Park, as this is his third consecutive loan deal away from the club. He has just one year left on his current deal with the Blues and there have been no talks of a new deal.
