Marc Cucurella opens up about his future at Getafe amid Atletico Madrid and Brighton links


Marc Cucurella has made it clear he is happy at Getafe amid transfer links with Atletico Madrid and Brighton.

Cucurella impressed Colosseum Alfonso Perez over the past two seasons and his form has seen him generate interest heading into this summer.

The La Masia academy graduate is said to be a Brighton target with the Premier League club keen to strengthen this summer, and the La Liga champions Atletico Madrid were also linked.

Amid those ties, Cucurella recently clarified his release clause, leading many to suggest he may be pushing for a transfer.

The winger clarified that his release clause is € 18m instead of the rumored € 30m.

And for the stress he caused fans with that clarification, he apologized, making it clear that he is happy where he is at the moment.

“I didn’t say it to offend,” he said Diario AS. “I don’t know if what I said was offensive to the fans or if it was seen as disrespectful.

“If that was the case, I’m sorry. Getafe is my home, the Colosseum is the first land my son walked on.

The winger added: “I’m doing well at Getafe. It’s true that every player likes to play in Europe.

“But I’m great and happy, we have a new project with new recruits.

“I don’t like to talk about this. I have a contract and now is not the time. I shouldn’t think of anything other than the games (Olympics). I want to be relaxed.

Cucurella competed at the European Under-21 Championships earlier this summer with Spain and he will compete in the Olympics later this month.
