    I heard that Barcelona might be getting their claws into this star in the making.
    I hope it's just rumours because he is an absolute Jem if we could manage to get him to Watford next season or the one after .

    The top clubs Man City Chelsea would be so jealous of this guy .

    Hope he gets his permit soon I'd love to see him in midfield next to Chalobah.

    You'd love to see him playing centre-mid?

    Judging by what I've seen of him that won't be an enjoyable experience..

    You didn't hear this on a petrol station forecourt in Leicester did you? If you did, don't worry, he'll be having a minor dentist appointment by Tuesday and you'll realise what you heard wasn't true.

    He's the long term successor to Gomes that we've been searching for, since we missed out on Pickford

    Would happily see him loaned to Barca as it would all but guarantee a work permit.

    Trouble is we would never see him again. The Pozzos bank account would be boosted so would only be an indirect benefit to us. Believe the strategy with Penaranda was always to get him into the European shop window. Pozzos were no doubt hoping he would be the next Alexis Sanchez but has not worked out that way. Our best bet is to win work permit appeal and I think there is still some hope on that score. COYHS

    Is there an appeal taking place then?

    To be honest every time I've seen him play he looks garbage

    Never looked garbage when I watched him... Even in the u20s final where he missed the penalty he stood out. Only played like 3 at Malaga so there is no way you can judge him on them.

    Can't remember for the life of me when I've seen him play but considering I watch no Spanish football at all I suspect it was international games. I remember him falling over. A lot.

    He was excellent at Granada. Basically had him one side, Success the other and some striker in the middle. Scared the **** out of even Real Madrid's defence.

    He should fit in well with the rest of our squad then.

    With the Neymar deal looking like it's going through. I fully expect Barcelona to be sniffing around Penaranda over the next few days with a deal that may surprise us all. They have to keep their supporters happy and I believe will bring in 4 or 5 high quality players and some young talent. Their team are no longer spring chickens and they will have money in the bank. Don't ask me for evidenced I have none. But I feel it would be logical on their behalf.

    Penaranda doesn't look anywhere near Barcelona standard.

    Am still amazed they didn't go all our for Berghuis, guess they couldn't guarantee him a starting 11 place till Neymar has gone.

    If they wanna spend £30million on him they're welcome to have him.

    He's the shittest player never to have played for us.

    Can't tell if sarcastic. Well played.

    On the off chance you are being serious, there are literally hundreds of players Barcelona would buy before they buy a player that couldn't get in the Udinese or Malaga team's last season.

    I was another who watched a lot of his games for Granada. He certainly plays with a swagger and the sort of poise often associated with a world class player. But in terms of how effective he is I always thought he looked so far short of premier league standard that barring a huge improvement he wouldn't get close to our squad let alone our team. If Barca want him for their B team I'd be surprised.

    I might be wrong - but if the window closes tomorrow for cross border loans too - then unless he gets a club in Spain in next 30 hours then we could be back to square 1 with him in terms of residence

    Unless of course the big reveal is the we got a permit on appeal??

    I'm pretty sure he's on loan to Malaga, just recovering from the foot injury picked up in the U20 World Cup.

    At Granada he was behind Success in his development .

    If Success can't make the squad then Penaranda definitely won't for the foreseeable future , even if he could get a work permit , unfortunately.
  31. If it comes to needing a place to put him and there are no other options Im sure he'll join watford B Real vallodillodoidid where we have 4 or 5 south american kids hiding already

    He's at Malaga.

    If he isn't currently at a club, maybe we should loan him to Huddersfield.

    Or are we not allowed to loan them two Watford players in a season?

    The loan of Hogg doesn't count as he's only loaned to us from Villa so it nets off.

    Villa needed to release a HG space for Terry on lone from Chelsea.
