Villarreal, collateral damage of the Braithwaite case and the RFEF
In Villarreal it was interesting that Bacca had a rhythm of competition, first not to spoil the rest of the course and, second, not to devalue the player in case of a summer sale. It also happens that the player himself considered the Leganés offer good for providing minutes that allowed him to have options to play the Copa América, one of his fundamental objectives beyond LaLiga.

Now all parties feel hurt. The Leganés, for not having lost a key piece without being able to resist and without finding replacement. Villarreal, for not being able to give minutes to Bacca and the player himself, for resigning himself to having a secondary role in the lack of season. Although Bacca’s salary is high (around two million euros net per campaign), the Lega was willing to assume it from here at the end of the season on a loan that they received as an unexpected gift at La Cerámica. The arrival of Paco Alcácer and the hatching of Fer Niño have placed Bacca as the front quarter. His playing options are scarce. The refusal of the Spanish Federation (RFEF) that the Leganés sign a replacement for Martín Braithwaite has had side effects on his next rival. Villarreal also feels affected by a decision that, had it been favorable to the people of Madrid, would have allowed him to leave Carlos Bacca. As As said, the agreement for the transfer of the Colombian was absolute. There was even consensus that on Sunday he could play in the blue and white ceramic dress, with no clause of fear that prevented him. What has now transpired is that, in that pact, Villarreal himself had a lot to do, eager for his striker to enjoy minutes and not be devalued by the end of the season.Sources close to the dialogue consulted by As have confirmed that it was the Yellow Submarine that initially suggested the possibility of letting the Colombian out in the poll that the Leganés was doing to find a striker. The pickles, obviously, welcomed the idea.
