Sevilla defender Diego Carlos has stated that his future will likely be decided on how his club finishes the La Liga season.
His team are currently third in the table, and if the Spanish club were to finish in the Champions League places, they will not be under pressure to sell their best players.
Carlos says he is simply focused on training and getting back to playing football following the enforced break in fixtures:
“I am very calm, honestly. I am very focused on the situation we are going through now. The most important thing is that. I have to think about training, my team and security. There are eleven games left, a lot of League. I think that this future section of the league to finish the competition will decide my future.”
Reports in Spain claim Liverpool have added the Brazilian to their list of transfer targets for the summer, but the 27-year-old won’t come cheap.
Carlos’s release clause is reportedly €75m (£67m), and while Sevilla will likely accept a much lower bid if they fail to finish in the top four, they will still command a sizeable fee for the centre-back.
La Liga is expected to resume on June 12th with all clubs having now returned to small group training.
