The Villarreal attacker has joined pre-season later than many of his team-mates after taking part in the European Championships with Spain. Luis Enrique’s side were a step away from the final, losing to Italy on penalties in the semi-finals. Gerard, alongside Pau Torres, represented the Yellows, in the continental tournament. The forward scored 30 goals last season for Villarreal in all competitions (23 in LaLiga and seven in the Europa League).
