Villarreal CF and Vera Rico Trilles (27/06/2004, Benicàssim) have reached an agreement for renewal of the young footballer’s contract for the next two seasons. Rico will continue to wear yellow until 30th June 2024.
The forward was formed in the Yellows Academy, joining the youth set-up in the 2016/17 season. Her great attacking potential, talent to get away from the opposition, and hard work saw her make her first-team debut in the 2020/21 season.
