Financially troubled Villarreal may sell Samuel Chukwueze this summer to reduce wage costs. The 24-year-old winger has just one year left on his contract and has been linked with Real Madrid and AC Milan.
Villarreal CEO Roig Negueroles said the club would consider a good offer for Chukwueze. “We don’t want to do anything drastic,” he told Marca. “But if we don’t reduce wage costs, we will have to sell players.”
Negueroles said Chukwueze is a “fantastic guy” who has been with the club for many years. “We know that he would like to play for a bigger club, and if there is an opportunity this summer, we will have to sit down and discuss,” he said.
However, Negueroles said Villarreal would not sell Chukwueze below his value. “It will require a good offer to sell him; he still has one year left on his contract,” he said.
