Cristian Ganea Will Reportedly Join Numancia On Loan For The Remainder Of The Season
Cristian Ganea’s move to Athletic has not gone the way he had hoped. The Lions purchased the Romanian from Viitorul last summer and at the time it was clear that the team needed help at left-back. However, Athletic were also able to purchase Yuri Berchiche from PSG which has left Ganea without many chances to get on the field and earn more playing time.
So far this season Ganea has only played two games, once as a starter, while amassing just 67 minutes. With several other players in front of him the only way he will get more opportunities is if there is an injury in the team or if he leaves the club on loan which now looks to be the case.
According to a report from Onda Vasco, Ganea is expected to sign with Numancia on loan for the remainder of the season. The move would allow the 26-year-old to enjoy regular minutes while also having an easier transition to the Spanish game while competing in the Segunda. Both Athletic and Ganea saw the offer from Numancia as a good option and the two clubs are working to finalize an agreement as soon as possible. Sources claim that Ganea could join Numancia as early as this week.
