Sometimes for a footballer, all it takes is the right environment, and everything will click.
For Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir, that has been Huesca.
Following disappointing loan spells at the likes of Las Palmas and Nottingham Forest, Mir joined Huesca on loan in January last year in an effort to get his career back on track.
That is something he has managed this season, with eight goals and one assist in 27 games for Huesca, meaning he sits 12th on the goalscoring charts so far.
Nothing to write home about for some, maybe, but when put into context, a more than exciting number, and Heraldo provide said context on the Wolves loanee today.
They explain that Mir is actually the second-highest scoring U-23 player in La Liga this season, with Alexander Isak the only one to have managed more.
Mir’s eight goals have also put him on course to break the club record set by Chimy Ávila two seasons ago.
His ten goals that year are the most any Huesca player has managed in a single season in La Liga, and Mir ‘should exceed this figure’ at some point with it already ‘outstanding’ regardless of what happens.
This is all good news for Wolves in the long run.
Huesca have a purchase option on the striker, which they’re looking very likely to activate at some point.
Even if they don’t, his performances haven’t gone unnoticed and ‘it is likely’ others will ‘join the bid’ that is expected to be ‘open next summer’.
