Striker Youssef En-Nesyri has slammed Leganes for rejecting Brighton’s offer for him, claiming they care too much about money.
The 22-year-old Morocco international scored nine goals in 31 La Liga appearances for Leganes after joining on a five-year deal from Malaga 12 months ago.
However, Brighton are keen to take him to the Premier League and, having had an initial 15million euros offer rejected by the Spaniards, the Seagulls returned with a proposal to pay 20million euros in two installments.
Despite the figure matching En-Nesyri’s release clause, it is also said to have been rebuffed, which has left En-Nesyri critical of his club.
“When the big one promises and agrees to something with you and then the small one comes and changes the situation,” he wrote on social media. “It’s like they say you’re going with something indirectly.
It’s a family thing. It’s sad to feel poorly treated by people who have shown me that they care about money too much.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
