They bought it for half a million, and they sell it for at least 40 million
Villarreal striker Samuel Chuquueze last night against Barcelona once more delighted the football community.
19-year-old Chuquueze scored a goal and scored a single assist against Barcelona. With his speed and technique he “washed” off the Catalan giant’s defenses.
Villarreal brought Chuquueze back when he was 17 years old for 500,000 euros. After only six months, he offered an agreement with a 40m-euro buy-out clause.
Considering the fact that Chuquueze quickly evolves into the new star of the Primera, the “yellow submarine” leaders offered him a new contract with an even higher clause.
It is a young winger who was born in Nigeria and attracted the attention of many European giants.
He recently made his debut for Nigeria’s senior national team, and this season in Primera scored 4 goals and 2 assists for 19 matches.
Football experts predict a bright future, and considering the great interest of the big clubs, Villarreal is unlikely to be able to keep it in its ranks for a long time.
