Long forgotten Southampton striker Guido Carrillo has been speaking about his potential future at St Mary’s Stadium given his loan deal with Spanish side Leganes end over the summer.
The 27-year-old Argentine striker arrived for a reported £19million late on in the January transfer window of 2018 from AS Monaco under then manager Mauricio Pellegrino and his spell at the club was about as successful as the managers in reality.
Seven starting appearances and three substitute showings failed to return a single goal for what was supposed to be our star lead striker and it didn’t return many chances at all really.
Come the summer and a change in manager, he rejoined Pellegrino at Leganes on a season-long loan spell and it has gone better for him with Soccerbase crediting him with 19 starts, seven substitute showings and a return of six goals so far.
With his loan not including a buy clause, he told EFE.
“We will see. The truth is I do not know anything. In principle, I have to return to Southampton because I have no option but we will see what happens at the end of the season.”
No doubt new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl already has his own thoughts on whether he feels he can get something out of the player, so it could be an interesting pre-season as our rebuild continues.
