After relegation from the Premier League last season, new Fulham manager Scott Parker has been working hard to move players on this summer.
The Cottagers spent a fortune bringing in players last year, most of whom failed, and the club have offloaded a large chunk of them.
There are still plenty left to find new clubs for, though, and one of them is defender Marcelo Djaló. He joined Fulham in 2017 but has only made four appearances for the club since, spending last season out on loan at Extremadura.
He’s one the club will happily get rid of, and it seems they may have a suitor in his former club Lugo.
La Voz de Galicia report today that Djaló is a player the Spanish club are considering as they look to bolster their defence this summer.
Djaló made 26 appearances for the club over two spells before leaving for Fulham in 2017, and they still think fondly of his impressive performances from the same season they sold him from.
They have a gap in defence this year after Miguel Vieira departed and Djaló is a name that has been talked about by those higher up the club. However, his high wages could prove to be a problem.
La Voz de Galicia report that Lugo’s budget is ‘very limited’ compared to the rest of the teams in the league and the ‘excessive’ salary Djaló would ask for, would put him out of their reach.
The newspaper believes that there are doubts about the Fulham man because of his lack of games in recent years, although he would add ‘strength and defensive speed’ to Lugo’s defence and that’s why they’re interested.
