THE BALL – Rúben Semedo studies Arab proposal (Greece)

Released by Sérgio Conceição from FC Porto, who did not want to keep Rúben Semedo in the blue and white squad, arrived in January, loaned by Olympiakos until the end of the season with a purchase clause that SAD did not activate, the center has a tempting proposal in his hands, financially very attractive, coming from a club in Saudi Arabia.

In the Dragons, in half a season, at the service of the main team — he played some matches for the bassin Liga 2 —, the defender completed 50 minutes of use: 45 in the defeat, with Lyon, for the Europa League (substituted at half-time), having made his debut in the League, five minutes from the end of the competition, in the game of consecration of the title, with Estoril, on the 34th round.

Rúben Semedo has also been associated with a potential interest from Fenerbahçe, commanded by coach Jorge Jesus, who bet heavily on the central defender, projecting him to higher flights, during the 2016/2017 season, at Sporting.

The following season, after 31 games with the lions, the centre-back, then 23 years old and considered a great promise of Portuguese football, would be transferred to Spanish club Villarreal, in exchange for €14M, where problems with Spanish justice caused him to fall. , the career of the midfielder from Amadora, now 28 years old and also leaving Olympiakos, is on the way, as Portuguese coach Pedro Martins does not have the player for the next season (link ends in June 2023).

Speaking of Fenerbahçe, another player who also shone under Jorge Jesus, at the same season (2016/17), and who, therefore, unsurprisingly, was also associated with the possible Turkish interest, was the Portuguese international midfielder. João Mário, whose career at Benfica last season was downward, starting in the spotlight, but progressively losing influence, consistency and space in the starting eleven, a level of productivity that has led the eagles to want to strengthen the midfield: after Mario Gotze, Enzo Fernández is also insistently appointed to the Luz club.
