Cádiz In Talks To Sign Mikel San José
Mikel San José will leave Athletic at the end of the season. Despite Gaizka Garitano and Rafa Alkorta saying that the midfielder can still earn a renewal this season, the writing has been on the wall for some time. With San José’s contract set to expire at the end of the campaign Eibar, Osasuna, and Real Valladolid have already shown interest in signing the 31-year-old, but they aren’t alone.
According to a report Diario de Cádiz, San José was recently approached by Cádiz CF who have maintained regular contact with the player’s agent. Cádiz hope to earn promotion to La Liga this season and currently sit at the very top of the Segunda table. If they do manage to move up next year the club sees San José as a veteran who would bring experience, quality, versatility, and leadership to the team.
When discussing his future San José has admitted that he would prefer to stay in La Liga to be close to home as opposed to moving to a different country. The way things are going at the moment, Mikel San José will have several suitors to choose from when his time in Bilbao is over.
