The pending subject of every summer since the goodbye of Rubén Castro.
UD needs a center forward who promises goals Y
Luis Helguera combs the market looking for that
killer that García Pimienta needs to fight with more certainty for promotion to the highest category.

the invention of Jesse as an offensive referenceboth with Mel and with Pimienta when she tried him there,
it was an absolute failure. Rafa Mujica did not meet expectations either. And Sadiku, although he was the most used by the Catalan coach, is not a saint of his devotion. The Albanian, who adapts to the economic parameters of the club, would have a renewal offer to continue in yellow.

Since the departure of Rubén Castro to Cartagena, where last year he scored 20 goals,
the UD is orphaned by a murderer in the area. Iemello did not work either despite the numbers in Series B, which invited Las Palmas to take over his services.

top scorer of the UD 2021-22 campaign
It was Jonathan Viera, a midfielder, with 14 goals. Jesé scored eleven goals and Sadiku had five goals. If the Sports Union wants to make a leap in quality, it needs to find a striker with statistics that are close to those of Christian Stuani (22 goals), Borja Bastón (22), Stoichkov (21), Weissman (20), Rubén Castro (20). ) or Umar Sadiq (18). There's no more. In the club they know it and they work to hit the nail on the head.

Despite the rumors that place the Argentine again
Sergio Araujo in the yellow orbit (
the footballer wants to return), the operation seems "impossible" because
"has a contract" with AEK Athens, as Miguel Ángel Ramírez made clear in the press room weeks ago.

In Catalonia they also place Marc Cardona on Luis Helguera's radar. The footballer coincided with García Pimienta in Barça's youth teams and the yellow coach would have given the go-ahead to a possible arrival.

Yes indeed,
Cardona is not a nine to use or a scorer who can average more than 10 goals per season. In fact, his best year was a long time ago when, in 2016-17, with Barça Athletic, he scored 15 goals. Then, between Osasuna, Eibar and Mallorca he only added seven. And in the Eredivisie, with the Eagles, he only scored two goals in the 21 games he played last year.

With everything. Las Palmas does not have any striker on the payroll right now, as Jesé ends his contract and suggests that he will fly elsewhere; Mujica too and in the club they don't have him; Y
Sadiku will be unknown as Pimienta would like to explore other avenues.

The pending task and the headache in the DU is to find a
nine Don't get tired of kissing the net with your shots. It seems complicated to get a crack for
the entity's economybut
Helguera wants to do magic and give the coach a guaranteed striker.
