An unattainable contract for Betis
As ESTADIO Deportivo has learned, Aston Villa agreed to pay for Álex Moreno 15 million in a first payment, plus two in variables, one of which is relatively easy to comply with. An advance that definitely convinced the Heliopolitans, eager to balance their accounts, despite the fact that Rayo Vallecano, Villafranca, Mallorca, Llagostera or Elche will claim a pinch of the operation in terms of training rights.
The red-fringed kept a 20% royalties of the left-handed, although other sources indicate that they would only pocket that percentage of the surplus value generated from what it cost three and a half years ago: seven million fixed and one more in bonus.
