‘Club Brugge wants sensational transfer from Union’

For the third season in a row, Union is in danger of missing out on the national title and once again Club Brugge is in danger of becoming the tormentor. Two seasons ago, Blauw-Zwart beat the Brussels team in the play-offs, while last season they won in the final minutes in the Dudenpark, meaning Union had to leave the title to Antwerp.

Now Club is once again in the lead in the play-offs, despite having started it nine points behind leader Union. They can gradually curse Club there, also because they do not shy away from courting Union’s strongholds in Bruges.

Club Brugge wants to steal Puertas from Union

In the summer of 2022, Club poached Casper Nielsen from Union after a long soap opera and last summer they also attracted Bart Nieuwkoop, who ultimately opted to return to Feyenoord. And Club could soon sign up again for a sensational transfer with its competitor.

In the podcast Four-zero After all, journalist Maarten Breckx states that Club would be interested in none other than Cameron Puertas. The Spanish Swiss is the absolute star at Union this season. He has recorded fourteen goals and 21 assists in 52 games so far.

Union has an option

The 25-year-old midfielder is therefore one of the top candidates to leave Union in the summer, especially because he is also entering the final year of his contract. Although Union does have an option to extend its agreement for another year. The people of Brussels are therefore in a good negotiating position.

If Club were really serious about taking Puertas away, they would have to make a lot of money. Transfermarkt estimates his value at around 11 million euros, but Union will undoubtedly raise the price even further for a direct competitor.
