So, it would appear we’ve signed the attacking midfielder that Lambert said he wanted to get in before the Liverpool game.
He’s from Valencia, he’s aged 22 and has apparently signed a five year contract, with the fee being around four million euros.
The only concern for me is that he struggled to get back in the Valencia side after being out on loan at Elche (Sanchez’s previous club).
It strikes me that given the low price, it’s possibly just another punt, but if he turns out to be as good as Sanchez, it’ll be a case of fair play to Lambert.
That said, I can hardly see him being worse than Cleverley or Richardson, can you?
This is definitely a position that needed sorting and I hope this player is the answer.
So, if the story proves to be true, I’d like to say “Welcome, Carles”.
