Getafe’s Hugo Duro is reportedly set to join Castilla on loan this coming season, according to Getafe president Ángel Torres via Onda Cero’s El Transistor podcast.
While Torres doesn’t explicitly say an option to buy is included, a report from Marca last week suggests that there could be one for the young forward.
The 20-year-old made 15 appearances with Getafe, much in the early part of the season and during the restart of La Liga, scoring a goal and three assists. He also made 23 appearances with Getafe B where he scored 11 goals.
Duro was recently called up by the Spain U-21 team ahead of his 21st birthday in November. He will be a part of La Rojita’s squad when they take on North Macedonia in September.
This is a relatively strong signing for Raúl’s Castilla side as Duro boasts a good amount of potential. He has spent his youth career within Getafe’s system and has bounced around within over the last several seasons.
He’s been getting more of a chance under José Bordalás, but is still looking for consistent minutes. Castilla provides him an opportunity to get that needed time and make a difference on the pitch.
It’s unclear what Hugo Duro’s future will be beyond Segunda División B and the brief time he’s spent with the first team. However, there is hope that he can take the next big step under Raúl and live up to the potential. He has been good and shown much promise for both sides in the time he has earned.
