Jorge Sáenz will seek in Portugal to reconnect with the promising central defender who was in Tenerife. Valencia and Marítimo finalize the loan of the 21-year-old player for one season. The operation, revealed by SIC Noticias, is on track and in fact Sáenz has not traveled with Valencia to the concentration in Pinatar, where the Bordalás team will continue its preparation from this Monday until next Thursday.
Life changed for Jorge Sáenz in the summer of 2019. To bad professionally. His great season at Tenerife earned him being called up by the Under-21 National Team and a contract with Valencia until 2024. The Mestalla club paid two million euros within its policy of hiring young talents such as Yunus or Manu Vallejo, who They arrived at the club by the hand of Pablo Longoria. But that summer, a few days after arriving in Paterna, Marcelino decided to leave on loan and Jorge Sáenz ended up at Celta within the Maxi Gómez operation.
The agreement with Celta was a loan for two seasons and his adventure in Vigo was tortuous. Jorge Sáenz only played eight games in his first season and none in the second, where he was even removed from the team for several weeks without just cause. Once the loan contract with Celta was fulfilled, Sáenz returned to Valencia in July, where he joined Bordalás’ work dynamics. But from the first day he knew that the club was looking for a loan for him and this will be made to Marítimo, a Portuguese first division club where the Canarian center-back will try to reconnect with himself and with football.
