Former Real Madrid striker Cristo Gonzalez joins Huesca from Udinese

Huesca have completed the season-long loan signing of Udinese forward Cristo Gonzalez, who was signed from Real Madrid this summer.

In July, Marca outlined the initial operation which took the Tenerife-born forward to the Italian club, which saw Los Blancos retain 50% of the player’s rights.

Madrid’s half ownership of the player alongside their buyback clause explains the low fee for the 21-year-old, who hit an impressive 21 league goals for the club’s Castilla team last season.

Gonzalez has made four first-team appearances for Madrid – all arriving last season and all as a substitute – and scored in the Copa del Rey against Melilla, while he appeared in a league win at Real Betis in January.

The report claims that a host of La Liga teams were interested in his signature this summer including Leganes, Granada, Espanyol, Valladolid and Levante but he instead opted for Italy.

However, now he has returned to Spanish football with a loan move to the Aragonese club Huesca, who were relegated to the second tier this year following their debut campaign in La Liga.
