And the Madrid newspaper revealed that the Mestalla club has been working for several months to include Selim Amallah, insisting on including the purchase option in the contract.
The Moroccan international arrived at Real Valladolid from Standard de Liege at the end of January and signed a contract until June 30, 2027, with a penalty clause in the event of relegation.
And while the player could have left unilaterally by paying an amount of money, he chose to remain on good terms with Bosilla, who wanted to retain the possibility of returning the player in 2024 in the event of promotion to the first division.
