Renato Ibarra: Contract in Holland is running down

Renato Ibarra: Contract in Holland is running down

It has been reported that the highly-rated winger has been the subject of several Premier League scouting missions.

Swansea City are among those said to be leading the chase for the 23-year-old Ecuador international.

They have been alerted to his potential availability by a contract which is running down and has no extension in place at present, despite Vitesse holding a two-year option.

Ibarra is said to be willing to take on a new challenge after three years in Holland, but his current employers say they have been given no indication that an exit is imminent.

Technical director Mo Allach told Voetbal International: "The agent of Renato visited us recently. He was going round to other clubs as well.

"We have talked about the contract of Ibarra but we haven't made a decision yet.

"I don't understand where that information (interest from afar) has come from."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
