Rangers have reportedly submitted a new and improved bid of €7.5M for Feyenoord’s Danilo, having increased the number to much closer to the De Kuip giants’ valuation of the player which is said to be around £8M.
The number widely-reported, £5.2M, is in pounds sterling, but that is around €6M in Euros – the €1.5M is addons.
Long story short, the sale of Antonio Colak made up the extra £2.5M that Ibrox Noise reported only recently, and the situation hasn’t really changed aside the wider media now reporting the same thing – and Rangers now await Feyenoord’s response to what amounts to around a total of about £6M-£7M. They will require to replace the striker.
Sources claim that thanks to Jose Cifuentes getting ever closer (that one is about done now we understand) it has freed Rangers up to go all in for the Brazilian hitman, who is absolutely 100% keen on the Rangers move.
Despite his present side having a confirmed Champions League place and being champions, Danilo wants to move to Ibrox, in what would be such a curious irony given the man he replaced at Feyenoord, Cyriel Dessers, did exactly the same thing.
Rangers are definitely getting close to the signatures of both Cifuentes and Danilo, and with some luck they’ll be in place by the time the serious business starts, and hopefully will get up to speed very quickly given they will unfortunately not be benefiting from much of a preseason with their new team mates.
Should Michael Beale get both his men, Cifuentes and Danilo, it would complete the summer business with just a CB required.
And overall, we’ll see how well Beale’s rebuild of Rangers does over the coming weeks.
But yes, closer on Danilo.
