Sergio Canales set for move to Liga MX

Sergio Canales is set to leave Real Betis for Mexico. There is an agreement in place between the La Liga club and Monterrey FC of Mexico for €10m fixed, plus €5m in variables, according to ABC Sevilla.

The 32-year-old Betis captain arrived at the Villamarín in 2018 on a free transfer and became a fan favourite at the club, and leader of the dressing room during his time in Seville.

Canales’ own team-mates are in England for pre-season and are aware that negotiations for the transfer have advanced and that Tuesday night may have been the last night that the Cantabrian will spend with them as a Real Betis player.

Rayados’ offer to the player is believed to be worth €5m net for each of the three seasons that he would sign.

To replace Canales, Betis plan to sign Giovani Lo Celso, a player with several suitors.
