Enzo Pérez: Benfica have obliged Enzo to play against Sporting the 31st, leaving only the last day of the window to push through a transfer. Valencia have, through our local media at least, communicated that they have no intention to wait and will activate other options. According to Plaza, the player is still hoping that Jorge Mendes can make a difference and help him get the move he wants.
Kagawa: According to Cadena SER, Salvo has confirmed to them that Kagawa is the alternative Lim has to Enzo. Superdeporte is decorating their first page with his picture. I for one struggle to understand any resemblance between Enzo and Kagawa as football players. Levante-emv claims Meriton is considering a loan bid for the player. It is Jorge Mendes who discussed the player with United when sealing the transfer of Angel Di Maria and is now offering the chance to sign him.
The reality: Is that Salvo, Rufete, Ayala, Nuno and Salvans will meet after the training session this morning to agree what to do next. Levante-emv claim Rufete will look for “another Keita”, meaning an experienced cheap option on loan. Kagawa is an option that is different but that would add quality in the “10” role (which the newspaper fail to mention is not a part of Nuno’s favourite 4-3-3 system…). The club would then evaluate whether it needs to sign a striker on loan.
Jonas: Is holding out for the final days of the market, putting pressure on Valencia to let him go where he wants for a low price.
Viera: Las Palmas is still a possibility and Valencia have agreed to pay 25% of his salary to facilitate it. However, since Las Palmas also can only pay 25% it remains to be seen if the player loves his football enough to let the other 50% go
Martial: Is discarded due to the high price demanded by Monaco
