Getafe trigger option to buy outright Barcelona fullback Marc Cucurella

Getafe have triggered their option to buy outright Marc Cucurella from Barcelona.

Getafe will pay 10 million euros for the player, and Barcelona will receive 10 percent of any future sale.

Cucurella spent last season on loan at Eibar, while this season he has become a key player for Bordalas, featuring in 38 games across LaLiga Santander, the Copa del Rey and Europa League.

After joining Barcelona in 2012, Cucurella's time at Camp Nou appears to have come to an end.

The fee paid is a record for Getafe, whose previous record transfer was 7.5 million euros for Erick Cabaco.

Meanwhile, loanees Deyverson and Kenedy have both returned to parent clubs Palmeiras and Chelsea respectively.
