It is no secret how much of a key role Alfredo Morelos has played at Rangers during his time at Ibrox, however, there are questions about how much time he has left remaining at the club. It is well-documented that a number of clubs are keen on the Colombia international, despite the Light Blues managing to tie him down to a new contract recently.
However, one former player has thrown his two cents into the discussion and has an opinion that those at Ibrox will not want to hear.
What’s the News?
Writing in his Scottish Sun column on Saturday, Kris Boyd has revealed that he is confident that Morelos will be sold in the summer and has no doubts that the 22-year-old will move on.
“The Gers boss will have one helluva job on his hands replacing him,” he wrote. “Despite recently signing a new deal, I don’t think there’s any doubt the 22-year-old will move on in the summer.”
Until Morelos is actually sold, the rumours about his future at Rangers will be a story that many can consider being in the rumour mill continuously, although it would be difficult to argue with Boyd’s remarks in his column.
Although there would have been some initial delight to the Colombian’s new contract terms, many would have been sceptical about whether it would be enough to convince him to remain at Ibrox any longer and whether it may have only been a tactic for the Light Blues to try and bolster the fee that they will be able to command for him.
The 22-year-old has a number of rather big clubs thought to be interested in him, which could make it very difficult for Rangers to keep ahold of him, with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Leicester City having been linked recently.
Should Morelos leave, Rangers must look to find someone who can replace him as quickly as possible, although that task is a helluva lot easier said than done.
