Nobody in Feyenoord wants to comment on developments, but in the north of England they are busy getting the deal done. Leeds United have always targeted Sinestra because the club knew they would sell Rafina. This winger striker, who is fighting Barcelona and Chelsea his signature, provides about 70 million in revenue.
A large part of this amount will benefit the purchase of Sinistra. Leeds understand that Sinisterra will cost €20-30m and it is unreasonable for Feyenoord to be satisfied with €20m.
If Everton, who also lost a wing with Richarlison (for 60m against Tottenham Hotspur), loses, a major prize could be awarded. But for now, it looks like Leeds United will become Sinistera’s new club and Feyenoord will achieve the biggest transfer deal in history.
Sinisterra, bought by Martin van Geel, became a hit in Feyenoord. Last season, he scored 23 goals in all competitions. Feyenoord discovered him as a young player thanks in part to the excellent detective work of scout Stephen Abtrott, who made good discoveries, especially in South America, but later had to make way for his disappointment under Frank Arnesen.
In Feyenoord he was prepared with a good plan for the first team, as he also suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury. In addition to the football player himself, it was also a huge defeat for Dick Advocaat, who could not use it for a year. With Sinisterra, Advocaat had many goals and assists with his team that year.
The 23-year-old’s comeback after that injury is more than remarkable and shows his perseverance. Sinisterra has been crucial to the team in almost all European competitions. Physically, he has progressed by leaps and bounds and has helped Arne Slot the left winger to excel with his attacking style. Slot knew exactly how to get the best of Sinisterra and so he also deserves the credits if Feyenoord collects a cool player prize in the next 24 hours.
