A scare for Jeison Murillo that is repeated more and more. Not knowing what turn your career can take is the great fear that the central defender from Cali has in each transfer market. The reality is that Jeison has never been able to have a quiet moment in the winter or summer windows. Nor do they let him return safely to Italy.
Jeison Murillo completed his cycle in Spain with Celta de Vigo and returned to Italy to join the team that has his rights and to which he belongs, which is Sampdoria. In Iberian and Italian lands it has been his career in Europe, and he hopes to have peace of mind again either in the ‘Samp’, or outside the club. But his intention is clear: to continue in Europe and in the best leagues in the world. His wish is that he still has a lot to give in the five major leagues of the old continent.
On his return to Italy, Sampdoria, owner of his pass, addressed the Colombian again. Although he was not a starter in the match against Atalanta in which his team lost at home 0-2, Jeison Murillo entered the complement. Everything happens because his coach, Marco Giampaolo, trusts in recovering Caleño and wants to count on him. Well, in an interview with Primocanale, Giampaolo praised him.
“It is a very serious element, always very positive. He has a very on point attitude. For me it is a positive surprise. So I don’t know what he wants to do,” said Marco Giampaolo. His decision is to have Jeison Murillo, but he left open with that ending the possibility of him leaving. Murillo will have two weeks to contemplate it and look for new airs if he considers the best or stay.
And it is that for now the only club that was interested in Jeison Murillo is not part of the five major European leagues such as Turkey’s Trabzonspor. However, a well-known league for him could have a hand. This is LaLiga, a competition where he began his journey on the old continent with Cádiz and then with Las Palmas. He was in Granada where he gained more prestige. Him jumping to Italy to Inter Milan and returning to Spain in Valencia and Barcelona. Celta was his last team, loaned by Sampdoria.
He has gone through six LaLiga teams so far, and there could be a seventh that wants him because of his great knowledge and experience in Spain. It is about Elche, because the owner of the club, Christian Bragarnik, according to Diario AS, is studying the signing of Jeison Murillo. Well, Bragarnik wants to strengthen his defensive zone and they want an experienced player in this competition, and what more than the 30-year-old central defender who knows this tournament perfectly.
Sampdoria would surely have no problem with the departure of Jeison Murillo even if Marco Giampaolo has praised him. In Elche he could share a team with two more Colombians such as Johan Mojica and Helibelton Palacios to form a Colombian defensive defense.
