Alberto Bueno returns to Spain on loan with Granada

Paco Jémez’s side bring in the former Real Madrid man on loan from Porto until the end of the season to bolster their forward line.

Alberto Bueno returns to Spain on loan with Granada

Granada CF are keeping busy ahead of the close of the transfer window tonight and have announced the loan signing of Alberto Bueno from Porto.

Bueno, reunited with former coach Paco Jémez

Bueno is a product of the Real Madrid youth system and had spells at Valladolid and Derby County in the English Championship before landing with current Granada coach Paco Jémez at Rayo in 2013. It was in Vallecas that he played his best football. In the 2014-15 season he scored 17 league goals, an impressive tally which earned him a move to the Portuguese giants.

Bueno will reunite with Paco Jémez, his former boss at Rayo Vallecano.

Things didn’t work out at Porto, however. Bueno played just 4 games last season, in part due to a knee injury which kept him out for a number of months. Now 28, the Madrid-born striker will be hoping to recover his best form at Granada under a coach he knows well.

A poor start to the season by Granada

Granada lie in 16th place in LaLiga having picked up just one point from the opening two games. Jémez’s side were soundly beaten 5-1 by surprise leaders Las Palmas last Saturday, a result which led the coach publicly question his own position.
