On 31 August 2018, Cucurella was loaned to fellow La Liga side SD Eibar, for one year with a €2 million buyout clause. At the end of his loan, Eibar exercised Cucurella’s clause, making him a permanent player for the Basque team; along with the transfer, Barcelona added a €4 million buyback option.
On 16 July 2019, after just sixteen days as a permanent Eibar player, Barcelona triggered Cucurella’s €4 million buyback clause, only to loan him out to Getafe CF two days later for the incoming season, with an option to buy for €6 million and 40% of the rights remaining to Barça.
On 3 March 2020, Getafe triggered his option to buy for €6 million, no longer connecting him to Barcelona. The club fully exercised his option to buy on 30 June.
