Sergio Alvarez reopens Celta talks

Celta Vigo goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez has reopened contract negotiations with the club after months of a stand-off between the two, say reports.

The 31-year-old’s contract at Estadio Balaidos expires in June 2018 but the Galician club have only offered him a one-year renewal, which he has previously rejected.

Diario Atlantico now state the negotiations have reopened with the goalkeeper keen to stay at the club, despite falling behind Ruben Blanco in the pecking order.

“I’m not satisfied at all with this offer,” Alvarez had told Diario Atlantico last month, after negotiations initially broke down.

“I do not like that they have offered me only one year as I want to continue here with more stability, so hopefully they can draw up another proposal.

“I did not expect this offer to be so short but I remain hopeful this can be improved upon but under no circumstances will I sign for just one season.”

Alvarez has spent the entirety of his career with Celta, making 156 league appearances across 12 seasons, and is the only played at the club out of contract this summer.
