Friday’s edition of Il Messaggero Veneto reports on Isaac Success being sent to Udinese by the Pozzo family.
They say the transfer is a ‘gift from Watford’, but it’s not what the player initially wanted. According to the claims, which come via Udinese Blog, Success had opposed a move to the Serie A club, being determined to stay in the Premier League.
He’d been earning around £30k per week at the Hornets, and it’s explained he’s very unlikely to be getting the same level at Udinese. Therefore, the Italians have had to be convincing, and the insinuation is that Success will be given much more time on the pitch than he would have got at Watford.
That, however, isn’t guaranteed, and Udinese will want to see strong commitment from the player if they’re going to put him in the starting eleven regularly.
On top of that, there’s concerns about the player’s physical level given previous injuries, and his current condition will be assessed by Udinese.
There’s no indication whether it’s a loan or permanent transfer.
