Valencia’s pursuit for the Everton striker Sandro Ramirez continues to get much attention in the Spanish media, with updates coming from the local press every single day.

Now it’s Marca who reports there’s been a meeting between player and club to know the conditions of a deal, and the Toffees’ answer wasn’t very favourable to Spanish sides.

First thing is that the player was told Everton aren’t loaning him out, so if Valencia or even Malaga want to go for him, they better make an offer for a permanent transfer.

But there’s also an interesting turnaround in the story. Marca claims that despite opening the door for Sandro to leave, Everton have now told the striker they count on him, and for him to prepare to stay and adapt to the Premier League.

This talk would have changed Sandro’s mind, who had been convinced to return to Spain, but now doesn’t have these plans that certain.

Meanwhile, Malaga and Valencia are still hopeful that the signing is possible, but the latest update is Everton will make things tough. The Spanish media had almost certainly been too optimistic when assuming Everton would simply agree to any conditions offered to them.
