Umar Sadiq Villareal Move Hits Brick Wall


Umar Sadiq may not be joining Samuel Chukwueze at Villarreal this summer as the CEO of the club, Negueroles Roig insists that news suggesting a deal was almost done for the towering striker is not true, reports Megasportsarena.com.

“This is a topic that comes from Almeria and we don’t know anything about it here,” Roig said.

Roig, though, confirmed that Villarreal were interested in Sadiq at the beginning of the transfer season, but financial bottlenecks stalled negotiations.

Roig added: “We talked about the market at the beginning, but it was an unfeasible operation, and we didn’t do anything else.”

With Almeria not planning to reduce their financial demands on Sadiq, Roig is convinced Villarreal cannot afford the services of the former Partizan man.

To show that Villarreal are nowhere close to signing the Super Eagles striker, Roig affirms that “right now it is as if they are talking to me about reaching Jupiter.”

Sadiq, who netted 19 goals and added 12 assists in the Segunda Division last season, has always voiced his desire to experience La Liga in La Union’s colours.

The former AS Roma starlet made his top-flight debut last weekend in Almeria’s 1-2 defeat at home to champions Real Madrid.
