Millionaires today: Andrés Llinás will not go to the Spanish League, reasons and more interested parties | Colombian Soccer | betplay league
The winter market moved strongly, great signings were made, many unexpected, the cash register was shaken. But it was not, in all cases, as expected.
The future of Andrés Llinás, for example, was not what was expected even since last year, when the departure to international football of one of the great figures of Millionaires was almost taken for granted.
The great option was Real Valladolid of Spain and the negotiations were held until the last moment, trying to take advantage of the last day of the market without success. This was reported by the journalist Pipe Sierra, who explained that the idea of the Bogota club is only the sale while the offer involved an initial loan, for reasons of financial fair play.
🚨 Despite several attempts, Andrés Llinás (25) did not leave #RealValladolid. #Millionaires It only accepted sale and the Spanish, due to ‘Financial Fair Play’, could only transfer with a purchase option ❌🔵⚪️

In this way, a first option falls, but Llinás is also interested in other markets and there is talk of Portugal, Brazil and even the MLS as possible destinations, none as attractive, in sporting and economic terms, as LaLiga.
The doubt now goes through the future: is it good or bad that the defender continues another year in Millionaires? There are two answers, both valid: at 25 years of age it is a key moment to make the leap to international football before getting older and finding less attractive opportunities, which close in all aspects for the player and for the club; but it is also true that keeping Llinás and Vargas in this semester, which is the revenge in terms of League titles and participation in the Copa Libertadores, is a clear message of calm for the fans.
