After repeating the iconic De Gea story and a fistfight between the president of Rayo Vallecano and agent Raul de Tomas, the Spanish striker finally moved to the ranks of Rayo Vallecano until the summer of 2026-27.
Rayo Vallecano announced the transfer of the Spanish international striker to his ranks from Espanyol in a second experience with the team.
The striker, whose name is abbreviated as “RDT” after his initials, had previously worn the Rayo shirt for two seasons, during which he scored 38 goals in 62 matches.
Let’s remember what the deal went through from the beginning.
Raul almost moved to Rayo Vallecano this summer, after an agreement was reached between the two parties 15 minutes before the end of the transfer market, according to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”.
But, as happened with De Gea and Real Madrid, Espanyol delayed sending contracts to the League of La Liga to lose the deal.
While another account appeared after Marca interviewed Chen Yang Chen to reveal the authenticity of the reports and details of what happened in the last hours of the Mercato.
He said, “There was no mistake in managing his departure. It is true that the player expressed his intention to leave, but no offer came to him throughout the transfer market.”
He added, “As for what happened on the last day, we did not reach an agreement. Raul is one of the best players in the team and we are working to solve the problem of wanting to leave.”
Then the Spanish club Rayo Vallecano witnessed a strange incident last Friday, when its president, Martin Brisa, entered into a fist fight with the agent of Raul de Tomas, the Espanyol player.
When the agent’s commissions were discussed, a verbal altercation occurred between the two parties, for Prisa to hit the agent in the head, and the agent responded with a nose-butt.
Rayo’s president, Brisa, had to go to the hospital to receive first aid, before filing a complaint with the police against the agent.
At the same time, and coinciding with the news of a violent quarrel between Rayo’s president and De Tomas’ agent, the Spanish platform Relevo blew up a surprise about the player.
The platform said that De Thomas is interested in the Emirati Sharjah, as the registration period is still open there, allowing him to leave Espanyol.
De Tomas (27 years old) started his career with Real Madrid’s youth team and participated in the first team before going out to Rayo Vallecano on loan.
De Thomas joined Benfica before returning to the Spanish League from the Espanyol gate.
The Spanish striker has participated with Espanyol since his move in the summer of 2020 in 89 games, scoring 45 goals and making 6 goals.
Rayo occupies the ninth place in the table of Terti in the Spanish League with 7 points after passing 5 rounds.
