Rubén Alcaraz It will be blanquivioleta for one more season than initially foreseen in its contract. The midfielder extended your contract with Real Valladolid until June 30, 2023, 365 days after the final date that established his previous bond with the club.
The Catalan midfielder, who arrived in Pucela in the summer of 2018 transferred by Girona (after passing through Almeria) in exchange for one million euros. Thus, he becomes the third footballer to renew this season so far, after Anuar and Toni did so earlier, also by 2023. In addition, his extension is that of his coach, Sergio González, who recently signed until 2022. .
Although in this campaign he barely managed to play seven games in which he accumulates 418 minutes, is a pillar valued as fundamental by sports management, a circumstance that Miguel Ángel Gómez observed weeks ago when talking about the possibility of renewal. Not surprisingly, he was a key player in his first career as a blanquivioleta, in which he played 34 games, all as a starter, and in which he scored four goals.
His good work last year made him a transferable player because he discovered the interest of several clubs. However, he bet to stay, as Gómez also explained, which invited him to update his contractual situation by virtue of his status in the workforce.
"He was able to leave, but he didn't because he is comfortable and wants to be important. Seeing the value he has, we must recognize what he deserves, "said the sporting director on the last day of the transfer market. This happened with this new contract, which Alcaraz will evaluate next Monday at a news conference.
