It’s official. The Athletic Club of Bilbao has announced the contract extension of Unai Winner until 2027. The 21-year-old youth squad’s contract expired in 2025, so the extension was two more years. The termination clause of 40 million that it had is also eliminated. Therefore, the club that wants to negotiate with ‘Los Leones’ for the winner will have to do so with the club.
The player is a starter with Marcelino, with whom he has played 32 games, of which he has only played 5 coming out as a shock. The winner was, in fact, the 4th player with the most minutes in Athletic’s 1st squad, only surpassed by Unai Simón, Iker Muniain and Iñaki Williams. The rest of his teammates have played less than the Lezama youth squad. And don’t forget that he was out for more than a month due to thigh problems in early 2022.
Full happiness after enlargement
This is how Vencedor expressed himself in statements to the club’s official media: “I am immensely happy and proud to be here. Thank the club for the trust placed in me. The negotiations have been going on for a long time and it is a real joy to be able to be here for many more years”. “We always try to improve individually and collectively. That’s what we’re here for, so we’re going to keep at it and we’re going to give it our all,” he added.
