Former Celta Vigo manager, Eduardo Berizzo’s, move to Sevilla is imminent, according to journalist David Cartlidge.
Berizzo left the club at the end of the season after a three-year stint after helping the Galician side to some superb top half finishes and a Europa League semi-final last season.
The 47-year-old has been linked with a move to Sevilla since the departure of Jorge Sampaoli to Argentina, however, the deal has been bogged down by wage demands.
Berizzo and his agent wishes to see the step up in a sporting sense from Celta to Sevilla reflected in the new manager’s wage.
They reportedly rejected a mega money deal to stay at the Balaidos, however, the figure would have been shared with coaching and backroom staff.
Berizzo at last heading towards an agreement with Sevilla, and it could be announced fairly soon. Been a lot of haggling over money. #LaLiga

Sevilla originally offered 3.2 million per year with their second offer seeing a small increase to 3.4 million per year.
Marca reported on Monday that the deal had reached its make or break stage after Morillo had requested that his client receives the same as former manager Jorge Sampaoli, which was reported to be 2.5 million alone.
Berizzo will reportedly earn triple his wages at Celta and Sevilla fans will no doubt be pleased to see the deal wrapped up. The new manager will look to strengthen his team and improve on their 4th place finish last season.
