Willy Hernangómez (29 years and 2.11 meters) will be a player of the Barcelona the next three seasons and 12.5 million euros gross if Real Madrid, which has the rights to the center in Spain, does not match the offer before next Wednesday, June 12 at 11:59 p.m.
A signing that is a blow on the table for the Barça team after the departure of Sarunas Jasikevicius from the bench, the open conflict with Nikola Mirotic and Punter’s no in recent weeks. An acquisition that will be joined by his brother Juancho and the already signed Joel Parra to reconfigure a Barça in the midst of an economic tsunami: the wage bill must be lowered a significant amount to balance accounts.
The Spanish international, MVP of the last Eurobasket, He already spoke about this possibility on May 31 on the Catalan television channel Betevé. “I am from the Real Madrid academy, but in the end I want to play and feel important. Fight for titles. I don’t close doors to anything. It is a winning and champion team… In the end it is a job. An opportunity. And if the circumstances arise, it would be necessary to think about it a lot. However, I don’t want to close the doors to anything”, said Willy.
“I want to compete, play and win. It is an illusion for me to think of new challenges. In the future. I have never won the Euroleague and I would like to fight for it. And I don’t know where I’ll be, but wherever I go I’ll fight for a Euroleague”, continued the center, who at that time was without a team after not being renewed by the New Orleans Pelicans of the NBA.
