When will this guy leave on a permanent transfer? - no point in him even coming back.
Get the impression that he's one of those forwards that contributes a lot to the overall play and will score some spectacular goals but will never really be prolific. Hope he proves me wrong, then this time next year we can sell him for under market value!
Cucho I have a lot of hope will play for us compared to the others. He signed a new deal last year and has publicly stated he wants to play for us, unlike Suarez and Estupinan. If the work permit was resolved he would be playing currently for us.
My concern is the buy option that was very quickly redacted from the official loan statement Watford's end.
Odd article here:
Watford said last summer he’d signed a new ‘long term deal’ to stay at the club, yet here the article says his contract is up next summer and it seems the interviewer asked him what his plans were and he accepted the premise of the question. Not sure if it’s just a misunderstanding, poor translation or what...
He's a good player. I've seen him play a lot of times and he comes across as a "good egg". Totally different attitude to Suarez and Estupinan. He wants to play for Watford, that seems clear. He's good enough in terms of quality (imo).
I hope he plays for us from January. It all depends on the work permit situation of course, but he'll be a welcome addition if it all falls into place.
He must be a lost cause for a work permit so presumably the hope is he gets a Spanish passport sometime soon.
He did sign a new contract in August 2019, so I doubt it would have been only for 2 years. Although I cannot find anything to say how long the deal was, I would assume it would have been at least a 4-year deal taking him to July 2023.
I think the piece you referred to probably did their research on TransferMarket which states 2021 for contract expiry.
The club described it as ‘long term’ so yeah, I can’t see it being a 2 year deal either. Just a bit surprised if the Colombian journalist asked Cucho about his contract being up next summer he didn’t reply by saying it isn’t. But then he wouldn’t be the first pro footballer to not have much of a clue about the paperwork side of their career.
I've got his contract down to end in June 2024.
The article below from when Cucho went on loan to Mallorca has a link to the official site which is showing as a '404 not found' error for me now.
There is also a tweet from the club saying he's signed a new deal from August 26, 2019.
As I've recorded his contract length, I presume that's what was said when the link to the site was working.
That article is still live on the club website if you search for it.
That's when it says his contract at Getafe is up, not the contract at Watford. It doesn't list when his contract at Watford is up.
And it wasn't from there I got June 2024 as the end of his contract was it!
There are articles from The Athletic where he's mentioned in the Google summary but I'm too tight to sign up. Maybe his contract was detailed - and by detailed I mean guessed at - in one of those because I can't find it anywhere otherwise.
Couldn't see anything substantial when I searched his name within the site and the relevant articles.
Speak of the devil, just saw this. Is this the article in question? @The Recluse
I guess it would be around the time he joined Mallorca - August last year - as that's when the official site announced his long term deal.
That's from today and the one UEA posted earlier, bringing up the question of the length of his contract.
Beginning to look like another potential super star that will never play for us, but on this occasion it looks like the Home Office that is the problem and not WFC.
