Eibar confirmed on Monday that they have taken up their purchase option on Marc Cucurella who has spent the season on loan from Barcelona.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a successful season with José Luis Mendilibar’s side, making 31 La Liga appearances and playing in a more advanced role.

His loan deal included an option for Eibar to sign him permanently for a reported fee of €2 million and that has now been exercised.

Yet that may not be the end of the story. There have been rumors that Barcelona have a repurchase option and will buy Cucurella back for €4m and then sell him on for a even bigger fee.

There is also the possibility that Cucurella could come back and stay at Barca but that does not seem too likely currently.
