Unai Emery

Villarreal’s boss, Unai Emery, speculated that Samuel Chukwueze would be leaving LaLiga for another league.

Chukwueze has been linked to the Spanish giants Real Madrid and the Premier League, among others .

On Saturday, the Super Eagles’ winger came off the bench to win a penalty for Villarreal, as they held Real to a 1-1 draw at Estadio de la Ceramica.

So far, the 21-year-old has scored one goal and provided two assists in all competitions.

“We are very happy with Samuel Chukwueze, he’s growing up with us at this club,” Unai Emery said in a press conference.

“His performance is getting better little by little but above all, we want to achieve with him our performance with his skills and capacity. He’s young and has a very good future but first, he’s with us trying to get better with his performances for us and the national team.

“In the future, he can go to another league to grow up more, but I think he’s very happy with us and every match he plays, he tries to give the best performance.”

The Nigeria international has been at Villarreal since 2017 and his contract deal is expected to expire in June 2023.
