Turki Al-Sheikh, head of Saudi Arabia’s General Directorate of Entertainment, expressed anger at the news of a player’s transfer to his Spanish side Almería, noting that spreading rumors was not helping the team.
The official Twitter account of the La Voz Deportes program spoke about a possible deal for the Almería club in the last days of the summer Mercato.
The account posted a “tweet” saying: “Gonzalo Melero has been selected to reinforce midfield at Almeria and it has been fully agreed between Almeria and Levante that the matter will be formally addressed in the next few hours.”
