Chich is too limited as a player from what I've seen over the years. If he wasn't fitting in at United I didn't expect much at Madrid to be honest.
The jersey sales were DEFINITELY a factor, and Madrid execs knew that.
Chich is an amazing poacher, but outside of that...what's really left?
Yea, I remember someone posting in here the away and home kits they bought of Chicha on Real and I replied "that's the only reason why Madrid brought him in" half of Mexico probably bought his Real kit
Sad but true - he will be freed tho, United will let him go and he'll play somewhere else where he can get time.
