It's being reported that Villarreal have indeed reached a deal with Karpaty Lviv for young Ukrainian striker Oleksiy Gutsulyak, who was identified as a Villarreal target last week. He's only 18 and will surely be heading to Villarreal B; word is we have agreed to a loan fee of €200,000 and we can then pay €1.5m next summer and have him permanently. This seems to be a pretty good plan. He's had some success at international youth level but I can't really say much more than that!
The Eric Bailly deal involves alittle more money, of course, and continues to be the main focus of attention. The Daily Mail quotes Sr. Roig as saying ‘There is a team that is very interested and if the three parties agree there will be no problems.
‘If the player wants to leave and Manchester are interested and pay, we will reach an agreement.’
