Villarreal confirms the departure of Ben Brereton Díaz

Ben Brereton Díaz’s first experience in Spain has been a disappointment. The 24-year-old striker, who arrived from England last summer to join Villarreal, is leaving the club with little to show for his time there. He failed to score a single goal in 20 official appearances for the Yellow Submarine this season (569 minutes).

Brereton Díaz’s departure is a blow for Villarreal, who had high hopes for the Chilean international. He arrived at the club with a reputation as a prolific goalscorer, having scored 22 goals in 36 appearances for Blackburn Rovers in the 2021-22 season. However, he struggled to adapt to life in Spain, and he was often criticized for his lack of mobility and his poor finishing.

Brereton Díaz’s new destination will be Sheffield United, who have signed him on loan until the end of the season. The Blades are currently in 22nd place in the Premier League, and they are hoping that Brereton Díaz can help them to avoid relegation.

The move to Sheffield United is a chance for Brereton Díaz to get his career back on track. He will be playing in a more physical league, and he will be given more opportunities to play as a lone striker. If he can rediscover his goalscoring form, he could be a valuable asset for the Blades.

The departure of Brereton Díaz is a reminder that even the best players can struggle to adapt to a new league. It will be interesting to see how he fares at Sheffield United, and whether he can return to the form that made him such a hot property in England.
