Winger Lucas Perez Martinez plays with Deportivo La Corunia this season.
Greek club PAOK wished to retain the 27-year-old Spanish to their roster but Lucas wanted to return to Spain. After tough negotiations, La Corunia agreed to pay the club from Thessaloniki 1.5 million euros and a resale amount too. "What really bothered me is that the club of my place of origin had to pay 1.5 million euros to acquire me. I am grateful to the clubs' administration and have to repay their trust" stated Lucas.
