Record signing at Real Sociedad asks to leave club

Real Sociedad‘s record signing Umar Sadiq has had a tough spell in Donostia-San Sebastian. While so many players thrive at the Reale Arena, just 1,363 mintues and three goals tell the story of his season.

The 27-year-old Nigerian striker arrived for €20m plus €5m in variables two summers ago from Almeria, and was brought in to replace Alexander Isak, but an anterior cruciate ligament injury kept him out for much of his first season, and he has failed to get into rhythm in his second.

As per Relevo, Sadiq has asked to leave the club this summer, and they say that Getafe are his most likely suitors, with a loan deal in the offing. Getafe are keen to reinforce their forward line, and a loan fits both parties.

Getafe lost Enes Unal this season to Bournemouth, while Borja Mayoral is coming off surgery, and Jaime Mata is another year older. La Real will also have to rebuild their frontline too, if Sadiq leaves. Andre Silva will return to RB Leipzig after his loan, and Carlos Fernandez remains injury prone, leaving them without a natural number nine.
