Espanyol will try to renew Borja Iglesias and Hermoso


Espanyol will try to tie Borja Iglesias and Mario Hermoso for their next sports project. The intention of the club is to renew both players, key players in the gear of Rubi, and settle as quickly as possible the news that point to a likely exit by the interest that both have raised both in the Premier League, in the Bundesliga and even in Ligue 1

Borja Iglesias and Mario Hermoso may stay or leave,” Roger Guasch acknowledged yesterday at the Col.legi d’E conomistes de Catalunya. Espanyol does not consider the sale of any of the two pillars of the team, but could do little if they finally pay their termination clauses. The Galician forward is, remember, only 28 million euros which makes him a ‘expert in sweet’ after his magnificent scorers data that he signed in his debut in the First Division; while the central one is 40 million although for Real Madrid it is only 15 (it would pay 7.5 million). The Madridistas, moreover, are entitled to 50% of the income of a future transfer.

Sources of the blue and white entity assure this wording that has not received, to date, any official offer neither by the scorer nor by the Spanish international, although the technicians assume that when the market of symptoms of movement comes certain proposal. The position of Espanyol is clear: it will not negotiate and will not let them go unless the buyer assumes the clause. “This is the case of Gerard Moreno,” they recall from the Blue and Whites’ offices.

But this position of strength in the negotiation is also linked to the club’s intention to negotiate with both players the renewal of their contracts. Do not rule out that they are already talking.

Borja Iglesias has a contract until 2022, but his clause of cancellation of 28 million euros (it was a nonnegotiable condition to sign for Espanyol) makes him a very desirable striker in the Premier League.

Mario Hermoso’s situation is different. Its clause is 40 million (15 for Madrid), but the contract ends in 2020 and its renewal is essential not only because of a sporting issue. His presence in the selection of Luis Enrique opens the door to important European clubs (Bayern Munich) that have discovered a fast central, strong, with good ball and very young, who came to Espanyol for free.
