Evertonians across the globe have been frustrated with the lack of movement regarding the incoming transfer of Malaga’s Sandro Ramirez.

It’s understood that the Spanish striker has agreed to terms on a contract, and even passed a medical. The Liverpool Echo reported that Everton would announce the signing yesterday, but no such thing happened.

Not to worry, though, if reports out of Spain are accurate. Sandro and his contingent would prefer to wait until his participation in the U21 Euros has come to an end.

The confirmation will only occur after the European Under-21; More specifically, when the participation of Spain in the contest of Poland ends.

...

The British press was quick six days ago to announce that Everton would make official the signing of Sandro earlier this week, but the Liverpool club and the player agreed to not drop during the European Under-21. The Canary does not want any comment to decentralize it and, above all, to influence its performance.

The desire to put off an announcement makes sense from the player’s point of view, even though Everton would love to finally get this one across the line.

Unfortunately, it does still seem like Sandro’s dream club remains Atletico Madrid, but in terms of him being an Everton player in 2017/18, it looks to be a matter of when, not if.

As long as Sandro gives his all for the Blues in the upcoming season, Everton should be able to make an excellent profit on one of the rising stars in world football.
