Since Quique Setien was appointed Real Betis coach, he has stressed the importance of having two wide players and one of his priorities has always been Cristian Tello.
Despite the player's salary being a probelm, Llorenç Serra Ferrer has made the one-time Spain international his top target and has finally achieved his ambitious objective.
After a good season with Fiorentina, Tello is into the final year of his contract with Barcelona, although he's not going to serve it with a move to Betis expected to be completed in the coming hours.
Various clubs have been interested in signing him but Santa Ferrer's tireless work to come to an agreement with Josep Maria Orobitg (Tello's agent) has paved the way for the move.
Tello will cost Betis around seven million euros and his salary at the club will be more than Ruben Castro and Dani Ceballos, who may yet leave the club this summer with various club's interested.
After the signings of Sergio Leon (Osasuna) and Victor Camarasa (Levante), the club are having a good summer and are also expected to complete a deal for Middlesbrough full-back Barragan.
