Anderlecht rejects Villarreal’s offer completely

Anderlecht rejects Villarreal’s offer completely

With about two weeks to go until the start of the new Jupiler Pro League season, CEO of sport Jesper Friedberg still has a lot of work to do at Anderlecht. The new players have not yet settled in at Lotto Park, while we have been waiting for weeks for the necessary questions to be clarified.

It is still unclear whether Kasper Schmeichel, Jan Vertonghen, Ludwig Augustinsson and Thomas Delaney will remain at Lotto Park. The defence in particular is a problem, as Zino Debast (Sporting Lisbon) and Federico Gattoni (River Plate) have already left. The future of Kylian Sardella is also still uncertain.

Fluctuations are still required.

In addition, it must also be determined whether the returning mercenaries will be included in the plans for the new season. This mainly concerns Marco Cana and Alexis Philips, who are starting preparations with the first team. However, the former was soon slowed down by injury.

Flips simply left for training in Portugal this week. However, it remains to be seen whether we will actually see him in an Anderlecht shirt next season. Despite a difficult year, the French attacking midfielder remains highly sought after.

Villarreal make offer to Anderlecht

He has already been linked with RC Lens in recent weeks, where he could be reunited with Will Still. Philips and our compatriot have previously worked together at Stade de Reims. Sacha Tavoleri now states that this interest has not disappeared. Moreover, there is more interest.

Villarreal even made an offer for Anderlecht, but it was firmly rejected. The Spaniards had auctioned off the player for €1.5 million, but that wasn’t enough to convince the Purple and Whites. They are demanding at least €3.5 million to largely recoup their investment in Flips.
