The young footballer was destined to have a breakout season, but Diego Martinez has preferred to opt for another type of player
Nico Melamed is one of the best players to come out of Espanyol’s youth program in recent years. As a member of the Spanish national team at a lower level, he was always going to make it to the first team this season. But the reality has been very different. So much so that Valladolid will take advantage of today’s match and ask Espanyol about his availability.
Just a few months ago, the player from Castelldefels was untouchable. The club had high hopes for him, but gradually they have dissipated. Even more so because Diego Martinez hasn’t fully trusted him and instead picked other teammates. That’s why Valladolid wants to take advantage and snatch Espanyol’s biggest talent.
Valladolid takes advantage of Espanyol’s visit to ask about Nico Melamed
As we have mentioned, both teams face each other this afternoon at 1:00 pm at the José Zorrilla stadium. It is a crucial match for both teams, who have been struggling at the bottom of the standings all season. But it won’t be the only thing at stake, as Nico Melamed will also be a topic of conversation between the clubs.
The sports management teams of both teams have been working on the sports planning for the next season for several weeks. And one of the players that Valladolid wants to sign for next season is Nico Melamed. Not only for his enormous potential but also because they consider him a decisive player in the attacking third of the field since his incorporation.
Nico Melamed is clear that he does not want to continue with Diego Martinez. The player himself will make the decision about his future next summer. Nico Melamed will experience a key summer, as he will have only one year left on his contract. That’s why he will have many more chances to leave RCD Espanyol, the club where he has developed and which he does not want to leave without establishing himself in the first team.
However, due to Diego Martinez’s lack of confidence in his characteristics, Nico Melamed could be forced to leave. Valladolid is one of the teams interested in the Espanyol player. For its part, the Espanyol club does not want to let go of one of its greatest talents, so it would propose a renewal and then seek a loan to another club in the Liga Santander.
