    How is it smart? It's disrespectful as hell. Feckers should just decline to participate in EL next time, and leave other teams to do it. Getafe are in a tough fight for CL places and went all in vs Ajax.

    We don't have a buy-back but with keeping 40% of his rights we could relatively easy negotiate to get him back if we'd want. Don't think we will though. Cucu was one of my favourite Barça B player and I'm happy to see him doing well but I think he'll maybe make it to a club like Sevilla/Valencia in the future but don't think he's good enough for a top club.

    I also don't know where he would play in our system. He's not good enough defensively to play as a LB in 4-3-3 and on the other hand lacks something to be a good winger. Maybe he could work as a wing-back in a 3-5-2 but he's the best suited as a LM in 4-4-2 (with quite a lot of offensive freedom) which he plays in Getafe and also did last year at Eibar. A problem for him is that not many clubs are playing 4-4-2 nowadays though.

    He plays as LW in a system that is all about getting ball forward as quickly as possible to strikers and if wide get the crosses in

    Does it well and fits the Getafe defensive side as he is hard working and aggressive.

    Difficult to tell how he would fit in at LB for Barca and that 40% sell on probably more of a plus than a low buy back.

    Smart because they will play against Valladolid away in two days and they need to get as many points as they can from that game to fight to stay up. Disrespectful? I don’t think the Wolves would have a problem with that. Teams do that, including us, we had rested players before crucial games.

    How can Getafe be compared to Espanyol? Losing the CL spot is far less detrimental to a club than relegation.
    Sóc Culer. Go HUAWEI!

    They will probably finish about 7-8 points above relegation teams.
