Indeed, the Sky Sports journalist, who has an extensive knowledge of Spanish football, believes Flores to Watford is a 'done deal' and his optimism with regards to the coach's ability should excite all fans.
Balague has gotten things wrong in the past, of course, but the optimism appears to be shared regarding the hiring of a manager of such stature.
There is no doubting it there is an element of risk involved, of course, with Flores never having managed in England.
But former boss Slavisa Jokanovic's demands were clearly too much for Watford to meet and there is certainly an argument to suggest the club should not bow to the requirements of any one individual.
The 50-year-old has managed a wealth of European sides, including Valencia, Benfica, Getafe and, of course, Atletico Madrid.
It was with Atletico that Flores won the Europa League and, should all go to plan, the Spaniard will be taking over his first Premier League club with Watford.
It will be the Hornets' fifth head coach in just 10 months - but the club's owners will simply hope they get better every time!
