One of the more regular stories on Southampton’s summer transfer rumour mill has been the future of flop striker Guido Carrillo.
Back in April, the 28-year-old admitted he didn’t really know what lay ahead in the 2019/20 campaign but with Leganes making no effort to sign him permanently, with speculation that they simply wanted another loan deal, this was always going to be a story that rumbled on – probably until deadline day.
I’m not sure you can really call this an update on his future, in terms of it really being fresh news, but outlet AS have repeated this week that Leganes remain interested in securing a loan deal for him next season, but we, of course, want to make some of our £19million outlay back on him and would prefer a permanent switch.
Ultimately it leaves the Argentine striker in ‘limbo’ as although he has returned for pre-season training at Staplewood, he’s playing no part in our training camp out in Austria, so clearly manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has made his decision there.
The report does link Getafe with having an interest in him now, but at some point we’ll simply have to cut our losses you would think.
