Barcelona announced on Tuesday that Getafe have taken up their purchase option to sign on loan youngster Marc Cucurella.

The 21-year-old joins Jose Bordalas’ side for €10m, Barcelona “hold the right to 10% of the sale of the player in the future.”

It seems Barca have actually tweaked that option from the original agreement.

The actual option was €6m + 40 percent of future sale. Barca have given up 30 percent of any future sale in exchange for €4m now.

Cucurella has played in all but one of Getafe’s La Liga matches this season, picking up five assists along the way. The team have enjoyed a strong campaign and are currently fifth.

It’s not a big surprise to see him join Getafe permanently, although there had been reports Barcelona were considering bringing him back.

Cucurella has been pretty critical of Barca’s treatment of youngsters. He said back in February that he felt young players don’t get the chances they deserve at the Camp Nou.

He joins fellow youngsters Carles Perez, Abel Ruiz in departing this season, while speculation suggests Jean-Clair Todibo could be next out of the exit door.
