Last Tuesday was the deadline for hiring winter working in a quiet market marked by the pursuit of Madrid to sign a striker. Know if in the last few weeks you will have heard anything about it. With the safes full of cobwebs and invoices, the clubs have not been released first on a quest to recruit new players in midseason, the time of Palermo and Aimar ... - and these have come to a trickle. The last day for full custom calls, faxes and haste, just threw up the arrival of six new players, with perhaps the Giovani Dos Santos to Racing Santander the most striking and familiar.
The Mexican player arrives at Santander as the first signing of the era Ali Syed. Will be given until end of season for Tottenham where they had the luxury of Harry Redknapp stock, pocketing the Racing an option to purchase five million encrypted. Santander club will not pay any amount for the transfer and shall provide the information about the player until the end of the season: 1.5 million. The arrival of Mr. Ali is noted, as the Racing hardly could have taken over that amount in the form of a new player.
Dos Santos surprised by his age, is that at 21 years appears to have been an eternity since his debut in 2007 in Barcelona Rijkaard's hand. Was then considered one of the pearls and seemed Barca quarry with Bojan, of the same generation, it would mark a time when Barcelona striker, replacing Ronaldinho already exhausted their stay at the Camp Nou. The problem was that he exalted soon after giving it a good season without showing crack category makings regularly. Neither ended up connecting with the crowd at the Camp Nou and not meet expectations, would sign a year after the Tottenham of Juande Ramos's hand without getting to play in Barcelona's Guardiola.
With the Spurs were not made things better and never quite adjusted to White Hart Lane, playing a few games in the English club. Then began the assignment which left such glimpses of his class. First to Ipswich Town, English the second category, and then to Galatasaray, again with Rijkaard. Turkey took the form required to attend the World Cup, where he played every minute of the four parties that Mexico played in the African continent.
Now, after half a season in Tottenham white in it comes the opportunity to return to the Spanish league in the hands of Racing. It is not the scorer that Santander was looking for but an end that will meet the new Serrano injury and will play the Betis attack. These four months will tell if her 21 years can be that good player that pointed in the beginning or the player stuck to just playing in the Premier. To remember the first would be a wonderful recruitment for the team Santander.
