Sporting will face Betis this Sunday in the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey. Christian Joel will be in charge of defending the Gijón goal. The loss of Diego Mariño by Covid has opened the doors of ownership to the Franco-Cuban goalkeeper, who has started in the last three Sporting games. At only 21 years old, many clubs are interested in him. The last to join the list is Leipzig. In fact, as AS has learned, an emissary from the German club will be present at this Sunday’s match against Betis to follow the young goalkeeper’s developments live.
To date, the club that has made the strongest bid for Christian Joel has been Atlético de Madrid. The rojiblanco club tried his signing in the past transfer market, but the negotiation did not come to fruition. The mattress makers offered 1.5 million euros, while Sporting’s claims were 3 million. Atlético made several attempts to convince the Sportinguista leaders, but the agreement did not take place.
Leipzig already know what it is to catch a goalkeeper in the Spanish League, since last year it reached an agreement with Las Palmas, which became effective on July 1, for the transfer of the Valencian goalkeeper Josep Martínez until 2024 for 2.5 million euros. The Spanish goalkeeper has not yet made his debut in an official match.
