Rui Pedro is probably the hottest player this season Olimpija. But his excellent performances are bad news for the Ljubljana club’s management: the 25-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season, which makes him all the more interesting for other clubs, who could start talking to him for a free transfer as early as January. And it’s no surprise that Rui Pedro already has a few suitors.
According to sources close to the player, Rui Pedro’s 10 goals in 24 games this season have already opened the door for him to return to Portuguese football, among other things. According to unofficial information, several clubs from the Portuguese top league have shown interest in him, including two clubs at the top of the table. The names of the clubs that like Rui Pedro remain shrouded in mystery for now.
The 25-year-old Rui Pedro is also expected to be of interest to clubs elsewhere, which is of course no surprise. The Slovenian league has always been a pretty good stepping stone for a jump to the European mid-tier leagues…
Anyway, Rui Pedro has certainly managed to revive his career in Slovenia, which promised a lot in its time, after all, he was still a teenager in the jersey of Porto scored a goal in the Champions League. Later, the footballer’s star faded, but now it has started to shine again in Ljubljana. This, as I said, is a problem for Olimpija, who will have a hard time keeping the forward in their ranks.
Not only has the Green-Whites’ striker attracted the interest of a good number of clubs, but Olimpija under the leadership of Adam Delius is also known as a club that is reluctant to sign big-money contracts. Rui Pedro, of course, will certainly not extend his cooperation for a pittance…
