Umar Sadiq’s €20m move to Real Sociedad breaks down – Sporting Life

Transfer agreement between Almería and Real Sociedad for Super Eagles striker, Umar Sadiq, looks to have broken as Turki Al-Sheikh, owner of Almería, has backed down and now the signing is paralyzed.


An agreement in principle was reached on Tuesday night between Almería and Real Sociedad for the transfer of the Nigerian for €20+8 million in variables and 15% of a hypothetical future sale to a third party.

Sadiq was expected to have a medical on Wednesday afternoon, but that didn’t happen as scooped from Noticias Degipuzkoa that the Nigerian on Wednesday morning trained with his teammates.

It is curious because several of the participants in the negotiation even considered the agreement closed while waiting for the definitive yes from Turki Al-Sheikh, owner of the red and white entity, for which not even the slightest problem was expected since the meeting was his Sports Director who was communicating any news.


Tuesday at the last minute, Jokin Aperribay sent a message to Juanma Castaño, presenter of El Partidazo de la Cope, to clarify that the signing was not yet finalized.

Well, Wednesday morning Al-Sheikh, who has a reputation for being eccentric and unpredictable, stopped short and at the moment, the agreement is broken and the operation is in danger of not being carried out.


Although the Real Sociedad seems not to have said the last word about him, what the royalist council does not intend to do is commit madness and pay astronomical and disproportionate figures when it had already decided to face the most expensive transfer in his history.

Everything seems to indicate that the reason for the discussion is that Almería intends to ask for a bigger transfer fee.
