Aïssa Mandi’s contract is set to end at the end of the season at Real Betis, while Liverpool and Milan are looking to make the most of it.
According to La Razon, the future of the 29-year-old center-back is a mystery. Although everything would indicate that by not having renewed his contract with Betis he will leave the Verdiblanco team at zero cost in the summer.
Mandi does not rule out extending the bond that unites him with the Andalusian team. For now, he is free to negotiate with other teams, something that Liverpool and Milan want to take advantage of to close their signing.
Aïssa Mandi has been associated with Liverpool on previous occasions, in summer and also in the January transfer window, when the Premier League side were looking for a replacement for the injured Van Dijk tried to sign him. Now Liverpool can get the player at no cost, which makes it a very attractive option.
Milan who look set to return to the Champions League would need a wide and guaranteed squad to face the competition and for this reason, signing a player like Aïssa Mandi for free would be a very good investment. However, It will also be necessary to see whether the defender will opt for Milan
“They are talking to him and his agent. It would be very important for him to continue at Betis . Mandi does not have his head set on the renewal, but on the team and in LaLiga.” said Pellegrini recently when questioned about the Algerian.
