Mariano Diaz agent admits Sevilla move was on before Real Madrid stepped in

The agent of Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz admits a move to Sevilla was close.

Mariano, a star with Lyon, was all set to join Sevilla in 2018 before Real triggered their buy-back option.

"Mariano was very excited and convinced that Sevilla would be a magical stage in his career, but at the last moment Real Madrid came in and proposed the project of his life," his agent, David Aranda, said.

“Last season was difficult for the entire club. And in the current season, we have seen where Mariano was when football stopped, he was starting to turn things around."
