Villarreal have indeed purchased Andrés Fernandez from Porto for €2m, and as soon as the player returns from his holidays he’ll sign his new Villarreal contract. That news came from President Roig today at the Fan Fest outside the Ceramica Stadium.
Our presi also stated there have been no offers for any of our players currently under contract. (Italian press has rumored Napoli is after Samu Castillejo, while AC Milan want Nicola Sansone). That could change, of course, and our attitude is always that if the right offer comes along, we’ll consider it, but nothing is happening right now.
Jonathan dos Santos played the entire match in Mexico’s 3-0 victory over Honduras. (Mexico have another home match coming up against the USA, so my guess is he won’t play that one). Jona’s main contribution was an excellent corner kick that created Mexico’s first goal. Brother Gio started too, but was ineffective and was withdrawn after an hour.
