Rangers star Alfredo Morelos signs mandate with Spanish agency for representation as major exit seemingly nears

Rangers star Alfredo Morelos has signed a mandate with a Spanish agency for representation as numerous European clubs push for his signature, according to the Daily Record.

The newspaper has reported in their print edition [28 June, pg. 44] that the Colombian has always made it clear he wants to move to one of Europe’s top leagues.

Despite the Bufalo entering the final year of his contract at Ibrox in this new season, it is said that it will take much more than £7million to get a move done with Sevilla still keen.

This may come across as though Morelos is pushing for an exit, but it is likely the opposite.

The Colombian is just preparing for if an offer does come the way of Rangers and it is deemed acceptable by Ross Wilson and Giovanni van Bronckhorst – something that hasn’t happened yet.

Should that happen and Morelos has no decent representation, he could find himself at a loss when trying to negotiate the best personal terms for himself and his family.

Exit coming?

This is not looking good.

But, football is a business at the end of the day and if Morelos is not going to sign a new contract, we have to try and rake in £10million or more this summer rather than lose him for nothing.

With numerous clubs said to be interested around Europe, it’s looking as though there could be more than just Sevilla in this race.

They could be assumed to be leading the race as things stand, but if other clubs firm up their interest, it could certainly see the bidding price rise higher and higher.

Van Bronckhorst and Wilson already look to be planning for life potentially without the Colombian, with the same edition of the paper sharing that chiefs are pushing to bring in PAOK forward Antonio Colak.

Should he arrive, it could fast-track the exit of a club legend – a moment no one will look forward to.

In other Rangers news, scouts at Ibrox are said to have watched this ‘immense’ powerhouse numerous times ahead of a potential major transfer
