Jaume heading for renewal
Jaume Domenech who played himself into the hearts of Valencianistas in the beginning of this season have been offered a renewed and improved contract by the club. He is at this point in time the only goalie who has been guaranteed his continued career by Valencia, while the two others; Matthew Ryan and Diego Alves are on the market.
Filip Kostic the alternative to Cheyshev
Valencia have now confirmed their interest in the 12-15 million rated Stuttgart winger. Having joined the relegated Germans for 6 million, his performances have increased the value, however Valencia and his current team are not agreeing on the price at this point. The player has no intention of staying at the club after the relegation.
Andrija Zivkovic back on the radar
If Kostic doesn’t happen, Valencia might turn to the 20-year old. Valencia were showing interest in the player also last summer and according to Deporte Valenciano, there is now the added benefit of him being able to leave on a free. Valencia are however concerned about his lack of experience, a trait the club is eager to add to an already young squad.
Valencia maintain interest in Camacho
The Malaga player is perhaps the one at the top of all Valencia lists. To be able to take the cost related to such a transfer, Valencia does however need to achieve a transfer for Enzo Pérez who currently occupies that place in the squad. It is expected that Jorge Mendes will assist in finding a destination for the disappointing Argentinean.
Espanyol want Negredo…for free
The newly rich blue and white look to start their project with “la bomba” as Nuno put it when Valencia tried the same. There is less and less indicating Negredo could have a future at Mestalla after him being given two disciplinary punishments in a short while. Espanyol view his wage demands possible to take up, but only if accompanied with a heavily reduced, or no, fee.
Fede Cartabia is a player of Valencia calibre
Words of Suso Pitarch talking up the possibility of the Argentinean staying at Valencia after returning from his loan spell at Deportivo. The player appeared very content with a new opportunity and would be one of a handful loanees on return that will be given a chance. Nando, Robert and Salva Ruiz are the others, while the club seems to have no intention to count on players like Orban, Yoel, De Paul and Vinicius Araújo.
Rodrigo wants to be a striker
The Hispano-Brazilian has had two tough seasons on the right wing, away from his natural position behind or as the striker. Now he has let Pako know that he believes he can contribute more if given the chance there. He also underlined in the conversation, that if he somehow fails to live up to expectations in such a role, he will assume the role the coach wants at that time.
Valencia confirm preseason opponents
Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have joined Ilve and Fiorentina on the confirmed list. Valencia will meet the two Premier League teams on a tour in England at the end of the preseason. Before that they will have had a tenure at Paterna followed by a tour in Nyon (Switzerland) or Graz (Austria) as well as in Finland to meet Ilve.
Bartra to Dortmund
Only two days after they wrote Bartra wanted to go to Valencia and that the player would not make a decision before after the EC, the player did make up his mind and sign for Dortmund instead. Insiders tell us that Valencia never held real interest in the player and that the Valencia mention was most likely pressure applied by the player’s agent towards other interested clubs. That agent is by the way a certain Puyol.
Barcelona has no intentions to sign Cancelo
Robert Fernandez, the Catalan’s sports director have made known that their plan is to maintain Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal as the right back alternatives the coming season, ruling out any move to replace Dani Alves.
Diawara – is he on Valencia’s list?
Sources are conflicted in their view on whether Valencia really has an interest in the 15 million rated youngster. While some say Bologna have rejected a 10 million euro offer, others claiming to have info directly from Suso, say there is no interest.
Valencia relegated to number 6 among top TV deal earners
With 69 million, Valencia goes from third to sixth among the earners and seeing a reduction compared to this season. Adding to that the fact that most of the direct competitors for Champions League spots are in Europe as well, it is easy to conclude that Valencia’s position has been severely weakened by the lackluster season behind us.
