Manchester City forward Geovanni is not a bad player, is he? He has been a decent player for the Premiership club so far and is certainly to get games under manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in the remainder of the season. And the Brazilian could well be playing in the UEFA Cup at least next season.
But Sky Sports reports that Geovanni is ready to barter all those glories and move to Deportivo la Coruna in La Liga where he had played two seasons with FC Barcelona but without much success. His agent Roberto Assuncao, also the player’s step-father, told the Madrid-based sports daily AS:
There is already an agreement for a year-and-a-half. The player is very happy with the interest of Deportivo and hopes everything can move forward. Now everything depends on the release of Geovanni, over the past few days we have advanced a little and we hope for another meeting on Monday in the hope that we can get his direct release as a Manchester City player.
Geovanni is supposed to stay at the City of Manchester Stadium until the summer when his contract runs out. Moving to Spain is one thing and moving to Depor, a club that is struggling to stave off relegation into the Segunda division is quite another. Well, if you have any opinions on why Geovanni is eager move to a club that could well play in Spain’s second tier, then feel free to pen them down.
