The presence in the Champions League pleases the central defender. The Lions are ready to open the purse strings. With a contract until 2023, Mainz knows that the athlete does not want to negotiate the renewal. With so many clubs on the prowl, he has set the €10m threshold for those interested.
St. Juste is closer to the Sporting. The lions are aware of the strong competition for the Mainz player, so they are ready to go ahead with a proposal of around ten million euros for the central, the value that the German club considered an acceptable level .
The presence in the Champions League, precisely with the financial breath it gives to Sporting, is an important point and which led SAD to move for the player. However, going to the Champions League is also a way to seduce the 25-year-old, who returned to the Mainz squad, not leaving the bench against Bayern Munich, after a long absence due to injury.
Identified as a prime target by Rúben Amorim, for being right-handed, quick and skilled with the ball, SAD are ready to open the purse strings and invest quickly, preventing West Ham, Newcastle, Leicester, England; Seville, from Spain; or Dortmund and Leverkusen from Germany win the competition for the athlete who has a contract until 2023.
The management of Mainz itself already knows that the center does not want to renew and Sporting tries to take advantage of the lack of definition of other European clubs in the respective championships to secure the athlete.
