Cristian Ganea Could Join Tenerife On Loan Before The Close Of The Transfer Window
With mere days left until the transfer window closes, Cristian Ganea is still waiting for his loan move. The Romania international was informed by Gaizka Garitano at the start of preseason that he will need to leave to have minutes this season but still finds himself with Athletic. Several clubs in the Segunda showed interest in Ganea, however their financial limitations have made it extremely difficult to reach an agreement.
For the past few weeks it’s look as though Ganea wouldn’t get his move and would have to wait until January to leave on loan. Sporting Director Rafa Alkorta hasn’t stopped working in hopes of finding a deal and one could possibly be on the way. According to a report from Javier Beltrán of AS, Tenerife are interested in signing Ganea but Isma López must leave before it can happen.
The former Athletic player has been left out of the Tenerife squad for Sunday’s match against Ponferradina and looks set to exit the club. If that happens, manager Aritz López Garai has identified Ganea as the top choice to replace López. After nearly 2 months of waiting, Cristian Ganea may finally get his move, but a deal is entirely dependent on Ismal López leaving Tenerife first.
