Cádiz CF faces a complex dilemma due to the legal problems surrounding Venezuelan attacker Darwin Machís.

The player that Cádiz CF wants to replace Darwin Machís
Faced with this situation, the president of Cádiz CF, Manuel Vizcaíno, has decided to take early measures and will act from January 1 of next year. Machís will return to Valladolid, the club that owns his rights, ahead of schedule, thus avoiding uncertainty about his possible imprisonment.
However, the Cádiz board is not willing to be left empty-handed and the search for a replacement for Machís’ position has already begun. Joaquín Jofre, the team’s sporting director, faces the challenge of finding a player with the specific characteristics necessary for the team, whether in free agency or through a loan.
One of the names that is strongly rumored as a possible replacement is that of Belgian winger Adnan Januzaj. Although his primary position is right winger, Januzaj has shown versatility by also playing on the left wing. Currently in the ranks of Sevilla FC and without having featured minutes so far this season, the Belgian could be a viable option for the yellow team. So far, Januzaj has not made public comments about the possibility of joining Cádiz CF as a replacement for Machís.
Januzaj, whose contract with Sevilla FC expires in the summer of 2026, has had limited participation this season, accumulating only 25 minutes on the pitch. The search for Machís’ replacement continues, and Cádiz CF is evaluating all available options to strengthen its squad in the face of future challenges in La Liga.
