Villarreal cantera: arrivals and departures

Villarreal CF twitter

Villarreal have signed Carlos Blanco (Moreno), a 22 year-old central defender who spent time in both the Barcelona and Juventus youth systems.

We also picked up Juan Agüero, a 19 year-old attacking midfielder (Spain U-17 international) from Atletico Madrid’s cantera. He’ll join the C team.

We have sold Imanol Garcia to Osasuna—well, transferred on a free, but kept 25% of his rights in case of resale. Imanol played 33 matches for our B team last season as a defensive midfielder.

And the B team’s goalkeeper, Ander Cantero, has joined Rayo Majadahonda.

We have renewed Miguel Alvarez as the B team coach, too.

Oh, and here’s news of a couple of players we once had in the cantera: Aleix Garcia is being loaned to Girona again by Manchester City, while Madger Gomes, who left us for Liverpool and then went to Leeds, is heading to Sochaux in France.

I’m sure there are others, feel free to add any you know of.
