According to the Russian Sport Business Gazeta, Wilfredo Leon could play for Zenit St. Petersburg next season. The parties have already reached a preliminary agreement, as revealed by Sport Business Gazeta.

Wilfredo Leon has a valid contract with Italian powerhouse Sir Safety Perugia for another season, but part of the contract seems to be a buyout option.  As it turns out, the club from St. Petersburg will try to use it and find the possibility of a joint agreement between all three parties. As in the case of Modena libero Jenia Grebennikov, they will try to find a way to redeem their contracts, of course with the consent and agreement of all parties involved. 

On the other hand, the Italian media (volleyball.it) and the Polish (sport.tvp.pl) report that the President of Perugia Gino Sirci said in an interview with TVPSPORT.PL – “Wilfredo Leon remains in Sir Safety Perugia. This is and will be his home. ” As sport.tvp.pl reported, some anonymous source revealed that the Russian club was very interested in Wilfredo Leon, but he reportedly turned down the offer because he want to stay in Perugia. 

If this transfer succeeds, Zenit will invest a lot of money and they should get a team that will dominate in Russia and also in European volleyball. But in the end, we have to wait and see if the volleyball star will leave Sir Safety Perugia and join Zenit St. Petersburg?

I don’t know. I like Perugia but Leon is not coming to his full potential. If has to play another year with Travica and/or Oleh then he can better leave the club. Aleksander is already leaving the club and that is horrible for SIR but yet again if he wants to play and live in Perugia than that’s it. But if he wants te achieve bigger thing Ian live with volleyball than he should leave.
