Decisive hours for Nzonzi

John Solano

Monchi has returned from Spain, where he soent the weekend, and has reconvened with Eusebio Di Francesco. By tomorrow, the mystery surrounding Steven Nzonzi is expected to be resolved because Sevilla has asked for an update at this time. The distance between the two clubs, as reported by Il Messaggero, has been reduced to €5 million: a €25 million offer including bonus, while the Spanish side ask for €30 million. A step forward has been made by reducing premiums and making the payments easier, with the Andalusian club having dropped from €32 million to €30 million. There is also work to be done also with the Frenchman, who said yes to a four year contract worth €3 million plus bonuses: his father-agent wants an important commission worth €5 million. Monchi is hoping to utilise the will of the player, who formally asked for a transfer. The Spanish media have been reporting that the sporting director, Caparros, spoke with Nzonzi and gave him a message of tranquility and encouragement.
