Barcelona has sold Marc Cucurella for ten million Euros and is thought to be finally saying goodbye to a player they have now sold twice.
Marc Cucurella rose through the ranks of La Masia. He was considered a prodigious talent within the walls of the Camp Nou academy.
At the age of 19, struggling to make the breakthrough from the B-team to the first team he was loaned out to Eibar.
He spent a year with the Spanish minnows. Upon his return, Eibar agreed on a deal with Barca to keep the player on a permanent basis for a paltry two million Euros.
Then in a bizarre twist of events, only sixteen days after selling Cucurella Barcelona brought him back to the Camp Nou. They exercised their option to buy back for four million Euros.
If this wasn’t crazy enough only two days after re-signing for Barcelona he was loaned out to Getafe.
It now appears after a solid year in helping Getafe to fifth in La Liga and pushing for a Champions League spot he has finally be sold forever by the Blaugrana.
Getafe released the following statement confirming the deal:
“Getafe CF has reached an agreement with Futbol Club Barcelona to exercise its right of purchase over the player Marc Cucurella.”
“The Catalan club reserves 10% of the rights of a future sale.”
Barcelona is saying goodbye to arguably one of La Liga’s brightest young talents this season.
