Sadly, the suggestion is that RBNY’s starting right-back, Michael Amir Murillo, will not return to the club for the 2019 season. KW Contintente’s report would appear to be picking up on a report published a little earlier by El Siglo: citing “a source of weight close to [the player]”, Alvaro Martinez advises Murillo’s future is “in Liga MX or Europe”.
The two offers - one from a Mexican club, the other from a club in southern Europe, per El Siglo’s information - are reportedly such that RBNY is expected to sell to one of the interested teams “in the coming days”.
The report notes that Murillo’s market valuation has risen sharply since he joined RBNY in 2017. The player has established himself as a first-choice starter for the Red Bulls, where he was part of the best defense in MLS in 2018 and backstopped his team to the Supporters’ Shield last season. Along the way, he picked up a selection to the MLS All-Star team, and he played at the 2018 World Cup with Panama. Per El Siglo, all that experience and success has boosted Murillo’s transfer value from around $150,000 to $1.3 million. The Red Bulls are minded to cash in, suggests the Panamanian outlet.
The report notes that Murillo had attracted interest over the summer, identifying Mexican second-tier side Cafetaleros de Tapachula and (not southern European) Dutch heavyweight PSV Eindhoven among last year’s suitors for the defender’s services.
