Global readies offer for scoring ace

By

OUT to strengthen its side for domestic and international tournaments, Global FC is preparing an offer for Spanish striker Rufo Sanchez after the United Football League top scorer said he is no longer under contract with Stallion.

Sanchez, who is scheduled to arrive in Manila from Spain today, is expected to negotiate a deal with the 2011 UFL champions, following the end of his contract with Stallion, which he led to two trophies last season.

Global owner Dan Palami told the Inquirer that a one-year deal is being prepared for Sanchez with an option to extend it another year.

Loaned by Stallion to Global, Sanchez helped propel the UFL powerhouse to the semifinals of the Singapore Cup last month.

“After carefully studying his previous deal, we believe that Rufo is a free agent and that’s why we’re trying to reach out to him for contract negotiations to begin,” said Palami.

Despite pronouncements from Stallion management that he’s still under contract with the team, Sanchez said he is a free agent because his deal with the reigning UFL champions expired last week.

A source close to the player said nobody from Stallion has gotten in touch with the player for a possible return to the squad.

“There’s been no communication from Stallion to Rufo, saying that they want him for another year,” the source said. “If Stallion still has rights over Rufo, then why haven’t they sent him a plane ticket to return to the Philippines.”

A former CF Madrid player, Sanchez scored 18 goals last season for Stallion to claim the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards.
