Villarreal manager Qique Setien has admitted Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze may leave the club this summer.
The Villareal coach made this disclosure during his post match interview after the 2-2 draw vs Atletico Madrid to end the 2022/2023 La Liga season.
Villareal finished in 5th place on the log and will be playing in the UEFA Europa League next season.
At full-time, the 24-year old who has enjoyed a good season applauded fans at the Estadio de la Ceramica, a ground where he has called home for the past five years.
When pressed for comments on the future of Samuel Chukwueze and other players , the former Barcelona manager Qique Setien said as quoted by El Periódico Mediterráneo:
“I think of them as people, Jackson has helped us a lot and has been a decisive player in this final stretch of the season.
“They will have to decide on their future, but we do not hide that they can leave . The same with Samu and with anyone, ”
His comments will fan speculations of a bid from Tottenham Hotspurs which will see the London club offer Giovani Lo Celso and cash to have the Nigerian winger.
Reports in Spain suggest the Yellow Submarine will consider a bid for Chukwueze who has just one year to go on his current contract to avoid losing him for free next summer.
