Ross Wilson has admitted that Glasgow Rangers had an agreement with Alfredo Morelos this summer which meant that he could leave Ibrox if the right bid came in.
Morelos would have been allowed to leave
However, he ended up staying at Ibrox, and sporting director Wilson has now shed some more light on his situation. He told Rangers TV (via The Daily Record):
“Alfredo is slightly different. Again a lot of noise. Not a lot of it right I have to say. We had interest in Alfredo and we had an agreement that if there was a club that met a valuation that we had in mind then we would look at that.
“That valuation wasn’t met and we rejected some offers for him because they didn’t meet that valuation and he remains with us going forward and we will see what the future holds for him.”
Terms must please Rangers
Valued at £13.5m (Transfermarkt), Morelos is the most valuable asset in Steven Gerrard’s squad – they cannot afford to let him go for anything below top dollar. Lille made an offer of £16m offer, but the Gers were reportedly holding out for £20m.
Will Morelos leave Ibrox before the end of the season?
At the moment, it appears that the Colombia international is willing to stay at Ibrox, but that will not last forever. He has already admitted that he has his eye on a more prestigious league, and there is only so much he can do north of the border. If he can help the 54-time Scottish champions win the Premiership title this season, though, few will begrudge him his dream move.
