Group 1 – The Likely Leavers
ACL injury has kept him off the field this season. Tough competition on the right wing with arguably more talented players like Nacho Gil and Sito. Likely to get a loan to gain confidence and playing time.
The left back has spent the season sick, but fortunately returned to training some months back. Needs playing time and is blocked by Gayá & Lato.
As for Robert Ibanez, he faces heavy competition on the right wing. Only a sub for Oviedo this season.
This acquisition is still a mystery. On loan at Recreativo he has done well, and they want to keep him
Makes the list another year. Valencia has an overbooking here, and despite his penalty heroics, it has not been a great season for him. Considered one of the voices in the dressing room that Marcelino might want to let leave to change the dynamic.
Has to leave due to FFP. There is no place for him alongside Zaza and Mina and he has done reasonably well at a very bad Middlesborough. Should be able to attract interest. Currently Espanyol, WBA and Galatasaray is said to have enquired.
The Portuguese has not had a great season at Granada and does not seem likely to get a place in a new central defence.
It is no secret Valencia want to sell the Tunisian who has been an enormous disappointment after joining from Monaco.
Again the main argument is FFP and the need for changes in the dressing room as well as the midfield.
Tipped by most to leave, some reports to the contrary.
Group 3 – The Grey Area
While Marcelino wants Parejo to stay, he also reportedly said he would not stand in the way if he is suitably replaced. Most likely, he will stay despite the fact that he will compete with Carlos Soler for the place alongside Camacho or another defensive midfielder.
The still relatively young midfielder has not impressed since joining from Getafe. Might need playing time, but might also stay.
Consistently not picked no matter who runs the Valencia ship. Difficult to see as anything more than a sub. Valencia will let him go if there is a decent offer.
José Luis Gayá
Despite Lato’s irruption it would be a sacrilege to let the left back go, but with teams like Manchester City knocking it might till happen.
Valencia are open to selling if the right offer arrives, although the player has said he wants to stay another year.
Joined as the new star and has performed far below expectations. Made himself unpopular with several actions and comments.
Group 4 – The Steady Stayers
After a discrete start he has improved lately. Had his breakthrough with Marcelino at Zaragoza. The central defender most likely to stay
Just joined permanently, so unlikely to leave already.
Regarded a big talent in Serbia after his U20 championship winning goal for his country. Will have recently joined but needs to convince Marcelino.
What a start to the season for the Alicante born goalkeeper. The best under Nuno, saving the team again and again. However, he is not quite at the level of Diego Alves, nor does he have the potential of Matthew Ryan. Offered a new contract.
Successful loan at Club Brugge, but his priority is to stay. He could leave if there is a bid, and if Alves doesn’t leave first.
Has won over parts of Mestalla with his work ethics, while losing other parts due to his lack of speed and rigor.
Nacho Vidal & Nacho Gil
Both have been promised a place in the first team
Told by Marcelino and Alemany that they count on him for the new season, and he responded positively
Just joined permanently from Juventus, favored by Mestalla.
Group 5 – The You Can’t Touch Thems
There is no way he leaves. New contract with higher clause on the way.
Recently agreed to a new contract until 2021 with a clause of 80 million euro.
The former Barcelona man has been one of the positives in this past rather depressing season. No reason to sell, and not enough reason for others to buy. Said to be declared “intransferible” by Marcelino
