In March 2018, Real Sociedad announced Roberto Olabe as their new director of football and in his first transfer window he helped his side sign Mikel Merino, Sandro Ramirez and Theo Hernandez.
Merino arrived on a permanent transfer from Newcastle United, while Sandro and Hernandez joined them on loan from Everton and Real Madrid respectively.
The latter two have struggled and particularly the forward, who has failed to score a goal for the San Sebastian outfit so far this season.
Friday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo takes a look at these signings and claims the Everton owned player hasn’t showcased anything to justify his loan signing so far.
Luckily for the Spanish club, they signed Sandro on a dry loan and don’t have an obligation to make the deal permanent, meaning the player will return to the Merseyside club in the summer.
Sandro has now gone for over a year without scoring a goal as his last strike was for Everton in November 2017 and it looks like he may struggle to convince Marco Silva to include him in his plans for the next season.
