LaLiga Santander: Eibar plan to active purchase option in Cucurella deal
LaLiga Santander The Barcelona loanee has impressed
Having become an important player this season, playing 12 times in LaLiga Santander and twice in the Copa del Rey, the club are keen to make his move permanent.
“The purchase option is well below five million euros,” Eibar’s sporting director Fran Garagarza said to Catalunya Radio.
“Seeing the age and performance levels of the boy, it’s our plan to exercise our option to buy him.”
Barcelona could still hold an option to buy Cucurella back, although Garagarza is unaware of any clause that states that.
“To this day, no one has told me that they want to bring him back,” he added.
Cucurella is not the only Barcelona player on loan at Eibar this season, however, as Marc Cardona is also there.
The striker scored on his LaLiga Santander debut for the Basque side but has not featured in the league since September, while he played in the two Copa del Rey matches in the round of 32 as Eibar were eliminated by Sporting Gijon.
