Real Zaragoza awaits Manu Molina’s yes
Real Zaragoza hopes to close the signing of Manu Molina in the next few hours. It is the piece expressly suggested by Juan Carlos Carcedo to reinforce the midfield and the player, now free of contract with Ibiza, has an offer from the Aragonese club that would be for two seasons plus an optional third.
Real Zaragoza is confident that the 30-year-old midfielder from Huelva will join the squad and that he can do so before Monday, or in the first days of next week, when training starts at the Ciudad Deportiva. For him to accept, Zaragoza is playing in the bid for him, because also the Oviedo and Huesca They have him as their objective, the letter from the new coach, who promoted his football and his performance during two seasons at Ibiza.
Renewed Marc Aguado
The hiring of Manu Molina follows a path parallel to the departure of Marc Aguado in Andorra, an operation that is already outlined once the midfielder from Zaragoza has already closed an agreement to extend his contract for two more seasons, until June 30, 2025 (it ended in 2023). This was the previous step to activate his loan for another season in Andorra, where Aguado will complete his third year on loan.
This time, in the Second Division. A quality competitive scenario that Zaragoza has considered more ideal for the player to gel in professional football and accumulate minutes under the command of Éder Sarabia, a coach who has his trusted midfielder in Aguado and the exact interpreter of his game idea. Ibiza will assume the player’s renewed salary.
The official announcement of Aguado’s departure is also expected in the next few hours, according to the club’s communication strategy. In any case, he will not be on Monday at the start of the preseason under Carcedo.
With Carcedo now at Zaragoza and Manu Molina free after the end of his contract at Ibiza, the coach’s recommendation and approval to sign him has resulted in a definitive move for the composition of Real Zaragoza’s future midfield. These intentions drag Marc Aguado towards an exit due to the media saturation of the squad, with Zapater, Petrovic, Jaume Grau, Francho, Javi Ros, Vada or Eugeni.
The pressure of Andorra to count on Aguado and not wait for him until later in the summer and the market has precipitated events and forced Zaragoza to rethink the situation of the young 21-year-old footballer, since initially Carcedo intended to evaluate him in preseason – he is a profile of organizing midfielder very similar to Manu Molina, in fact–.
