First off, VillarrealUSA is proud to join the NewsNow network. This partnership will give our readers access to Villarreal news in English from across the Web.
To our new readers: welcome! We hope to keep you entertained.
Lots of news from the Ciudad Deportiva:
- For the first time ever, Villarreal CF has 4 players in a Spanish national team squad. That's tied with Real Madrid. Incredible.
- Marchena and Capdevila were locks, having won the World Cup, and Cazorla was due. But Bruno Soriano, really?
- El Periódico Mediterráneo had hoped for 5, including Senna and Diego López. Sadly, their time may be done, though Diego is more reliable than Pepe Reina.
- Speaking of Bruno, he has signed for an additional 4 years. His contract now runs out in 2016, or when Barcelona pays his rescission clause.
- The B team has made its "last signing" of the offseason: wingback Jaume Costa, on loan from Valencia.
- And from the "Where are they Now?" files: Ernesto Valverde is being considered for manager of the Japanese national team.
An update on our Europa League opponent to come on Friday.
