The “salary” threatens the transfer of the “atomic crescent ant” to Calcio
Al Hilal club seeks to fulfill the demands of Portuguese coach Leonardo Jardim in the current summer transfer period, following the arrival of Malian striker Moussa Marega from Porto on a three-year contract.
Jardim’s demands do not only stop at strengthening the ranks of the players, but also the departure of others, including the former Italian international Sebastian Giovinco, nicknamed “The Atomic Ant”, who is a strong candidate to return to the Italian stadiums after 6 years of absence.
Crisis due to the departure of Giovinco
The former Juventus star is seriously considering returning to play in the Italian league, as Fiorentina and Venice clubs want to obtain his services, but something is hindering the completion of that deal.
Giovnico insists on the idea of getting a fee similar to what he currently receives at Al Hilal, which is 7 million euros per season, which is almost impossible for the Italian clubs that want to include him at the present time.
According to the Italian network “Calcio Online”, the Italian clubs are seeking to persuade Giovinco to reduce his financial demands in the event that he really wants to return to play again in Calcio starting next season.
And the Italian Andrea Catoli, agent of Sebastian Giovinco, Al Hilal player, had posted, through his account on “Instagram”, a picture of the player and in front of him the Al Hilal shirt, in addition to a group of papers scattered on a table, which the fans linked to the approaching departure of the player who was sitting on the bench for long periods in
Giovinco (34 years old) was outside Al Hilal’s list in the AFC Champions League (group stage), in exchange for the entry of Argentine Luciano Vieto.
It is noteworthy that Giovinco’s contract ends with Al Hilal in June 2022, and the player contributed to the historic Al-Azraq trilogy by achieving the AFC Champions League, in addition to the League and King’s Cup.
