Extra two years
Eusebio Sacristán is poised to sign a two-year contract extension with Real Sociedad, taking him to June 2019. An agreement is in place between the coach and club president Jokin Aperribay for the length of the new contract, now the two parties must define and settle on the terms and conditions of the arrangement.
Transfer market matters
Up until now, Eusebio has shied away from questions about his new contract and with the team clocking their best figures since they ended as runners-up, the club is keen to avoid any distractions with La Real keen to return to Europe next season. Talks have been on the back burner while Eusebio has been handling issues relating to the transfer market (the departures of Héctor and Rubén Pardo on loan) but discussions are now due to intensify now the winter window has closed. Eusebio's intention is to continue for a long time in San Sebastián and consolidate La Real's ongoing sporting project. In that sense, both coach and club are 100% in agreement. There is no doubt that Eusebio has managed to improve the group of players he is managing and now the results are finally following suit.
