Sevilla was in danger of relegation at one point last season. The La Liga club has had a great season since then. Although they are 12th in the league, they have won the Europa League and signed up for the Champions League in the coming season. However, the club's huge debt has poured water on the occasion of this joy. The club is about to make tough decisions to reduce its debt burden.
Sevilla is in dire financial straits. Sevilla want to sell their entire squad to clear a debt burden of around 90 million euros. This news was reported by the Spanish media Marca. The media said that the club wants to overcome this problem quickly.
After winning the Europa League title, Sevilla's star players have attracted a lot of interest from Europe's biggest clubs. The Saudi Pro League clubs are also interested. Al Nasr, who brought Cristiano Ronaldo to the team, has expressed his interest in the team's Moroccan goalkeeper Yassin Bounu.
Besides, the two Argentine fullbacks Gonzalo Montiel and Marcus Acuna who won the World Cup, Moroccan striker Youssef N-Nesri, Tottenham's former Argentine star Erik Lamela, Liverpool's former winger Suso and several other players are already willing to leave Sevilla this time. However, even if they sell them, Sevilla will not be able to get out of this financial crisis. They have to release more players to keep up with the Financial Fair Play rules.
Ultimately, if Sevilla fail to sell enough players, they are going to be in serious financial trouble. Two years ago, Barcelona were forced to let go of the greatest player in their history, Lionel Messi. Barca is still paying off that debt.
In the meantime, Sevilla is in contact with several clubs in Europe for the sale of the player. The name of Manchester United is in this list. Sevilla beat this Premier League team in the quarter-finals on their way to winning the Europa League this year.
Earlier, the club's director Monchio joined Aston Villa. According to Marca, Monchio left the position mainly because of the situation at the club. Because he was not in favor of selling so many players.
La Liga rules are also largely responsible for this complication. Marca has expressed fears that Sevilla may not get out of this problem quickly, but they may end up like Barcelona.
