In Glasgow Rangers they are divided with the future of Alfredo Morelos. Surely the club wants to keep the Colombian striker, but there are also other versions. There are those who say that he could use the sale so that the Scottish team can take economic advantage of the Cordovan, and others who do maintain that he is a fundamental player and should not leave.
A reference that went further was the Italian Marco Negri. The forward said that it would be a mistake for Alfredo Morelos to leave Glasgow Rangers, as life in the Scottish city is very good, and they are the best years in the career of a player who experiences what Rangers is. He maintained that Morelos will always remember his career in Scottish territory as one of the best in his sports career.
However, Alfredo Morelos himself has said in an interview with Win SPorts that he is comfortable, “at Rangers I scored a number of very important goals, things have gone very well for me. I have worked well in Europe and that has been reflected with fruits and goals with high statistics”, and it is not for less, because the Cordovan has entered the history books of the Uefa Europa League being the third player with the most goals in the competition thanks to its 32 conquests.
Although he entered in the second half, Alfredo Morelos managed to add minutes in the second leg of the third qualifying phase of the Uefa Champions League against Union Saint-Gilloise of Belgium. The Scottish team managed to overcome the series and join another previous instance to soon qualify for the group stage of the Champions League, another incentive to continue in Scotland or in European football.
For this, and for many reasons, leaving Europe seems not to be the card that Alfredo Morelos wants, and less at a time when he has to arrive with goals to impress Néstor Lorenzo in this change of technical direction in the Colombian National Team. However, Cruz Azul wants to surprise the market by trying to sign the Colombian.
Alfredo Morelos shared a team with Pedro Caixinha, a Portuguese coach who now directs Talleres de Córdoba. The Portuguese requested the signing of Morelos in 2017 when he played for Helsinki in Finland. When Caixinha managed Cruz Azul, he looked for a way to sign him. Now the cement producers want to return to the fray for the ‘Buffalo’, but they know it won’t be easy.
Collecting information from El Futbolero de México, they maintain the following, “the name of the Colombian player Alfredo Morelos who plays for Rangers in Scotland and was directed by an old acquaintance of La Maquina, Pedro Caixinha, and the The coffee grower has just scored on his return to Scotland after not playing since April due to thigh surgery, reviving the idea that there is still interest as in 2019 for the 26-year-old.”
The main problem in Cruz Azul is that striker Santiago Giménez left the cement ranks to sign with Feyenoord from the Netherlands. That’s where the Colombian comes in as the objective of the sky-blue under the technical direction of the Uruguayan, Diego Aguirre.
