Rangers Secure Pre-Contract Agreement with Jose Cifuentes and Pursue Danilo from Feyenoord

In an exclusive statement to Sky Sports News, Michael Beale has confirmed the club’s acquisition of midfielder Jose Cifuentes on a pre-contract agreement. The Ecuadorian star’s current deal at Los Angeles is set to expire in December, making him a highly sought-after player in the transfer market. After months of speculation and anticipation, the Ibrox club has finally secured the services of the talented 24-year-old.

Beale expressed his optimism regarding the potential transfer, hoping to finalize a deal with the MLS club that would see Jose Cifuentes joining Rangers in the upcoming summer window. However, the process involves several logistical challenges, such as work permits and other formalities, which both clubs are currently addressing.

“It is getting closer. There are logistics with that one and work permits and everything else that goes in between it,” Beale revealed to Sky Sports News. “The clubs are still talking. He’s out of contract at the end of the year and we have an agreement for that. We would like to bring it to close early so he can join us in this window. Those discussions are ongoing.”

As Rangers continue to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season, Beale disclosed that the club has submitted an improved bid of £5 million for Feyenoord striker, Danilo. While negotiations are underway between the two clubs, Beale praised Danilo’s abilities, acknowledging him as a valuable asset.

“There are talks in the background on that one,” Beale stated when asked about the pursuit of Danilo. “But he’s Feyenoord’s player at the moment, and they’re also building after a really successful campaign last year. We’ll keep that between the two clubs at the moment, and if there is any news, we’ll update. He’s obviously a good player.”

The signings this summer have been a focal point for Rangers, and the club’s proactive approach has already seen them secure seven new players. Despite this impressive progress, their interest in Nottingham Forest defender Jonathan Panzo remains intact, indicating that Rangers are keen on bolstering their defensive options.

As the transfer window unfolds, Rangers fans eagerly anticipate the potential arrivals of Jose Cifuentes and Danilo while keeping a watchful eye on further developments regarding Jonathan Panzo. With Michael Beale at the helm, Rangers’ ambitious pursuit of top talent aims to elevate the team’s performance and solidify their position as a dominant force in the upcoming season.
