  • Goodnews. Heard Villarreal want to put him up for sale. Hope they do and I hope a team like atletico Madrid buys him and makes, good use of his abilities. All the best bro!

  • Chukwueze was designed for the premier league…..His pace is been wasted in Spain….He needs where his dribbling skills will create enough space for him to make an impact….I think he should move to England let him entertain us with scintillating football.
