Everton have been trying to sell Sandro Ramirez for the last 18 months without success. The 23-year-old looked a bargain at £5.25m when he arrived at Goodison Park in July 2017, but he found himself out of favour in January 2018 and doesn’t appear to have a future at the club.
Real Valladolid have signed the £65k-per-week striker on a season-long loan – his third temporary move away from Everton in one-and-a-half years – but whether he can impress enough to earn himself a permanent move remains to be seen. Sandro’s form over the last two years suggests he won’t.
The former Spain u21 international has scored just one goal in 16 appearances for Everton, failed to score in 18 appearances at Sevilla and failed to score in 26 appearances at Real Sociedad. Sandro hasn’t found the back of the net since November 2017 – nearly two years ago.
Chris Beesley of Liverpool Echo revealed that Everton can’t find a suitor willing to sign Sandro permanently so they have to accept a loan deal as it saves them paying the majority of his wages for a season. The Blues have spent £12m on the centre-forward in two years (transfer fee + wages) and look unlikely to reclaim their losses.
