Espanyol decline to exercise option on Facundo

Benfica Blog
Facundo Ferreyra's one and half season loan by Benfica to Espanyol is set to end tentatively on June 30 and the Spanish side plans to decline to exercise the purchase option of €8M from Benfica to make Facundo's move permanent. Facundo joined Espanyol during the winter transfer window of 2019 on loan for a fee of €2.2M and appeared in 33 total games across all competitions for Espanyol scoring nine goals while setting up one during his spell. Facundo was loaned to Espanyol after failing to impress during his short time at Benfica scoring just once in nine games while falling out of favour with former manager Rui Vitoria. Benfica are hoping to find a club to take on the services of the 29 year old striker as they look to shed Ferreyra's high salary from the teams payroll, Ferreyra is signed for another two seasons and not in the teams plans going forward.
