A domino effect with Cavani, Rodrigo, Alcácer and Gameiro

first_imgAlbert Celades, in the press room, neither assured nor denied that he was going to have Rodrigo at his command in February (“What I see about Rodrigo is that he trains with us and I don’t speak of hypotheses”), while Quique Setién did make it clear that “we consider signing a nine”. According to the information handled by AS, Rodrigo would be among the candidates to replace Luis Suárez, although it is an operation that is described as “complicated to execute” in January. Valencia reached an agreement with Atlético de Madrid for 50 million in summer by Rodrigo, an option that failed to materialize because the rojiblanco club did not find a destination for Correa. That is the minimum price for which Peter Lim would change his mind about Rodrigo, because from Valencia, after the classification of the team for the knockout stages of the Champions League, it was filtered in December that the international would not be on sale now in January. But today in the club ché simply refer to that there is no talk of “hypothesis.” His coach made it clear on Friday that he does not have the Spanish striker and he is crazy about music for returning to Mestalla. Of course, the German club (minimum) wants to collect what they once paid for it, which sources close to the operation amount to 23 million euros (although from Germany there was talk of 28). By the way, Barcelona did not keep any preferential rights nor a percentage of a future transfer, so the Alcacer operation could not be linked in economic terms to that of Rodrigo Moreno.The Alcacer operation, as mentioned, would be directly more linked (at least in Peter Lim’s mind) to the exit of Kevin Gameiro’s Valencia. Lyon was bidding for French, although the French club has signed Ekambi. But in the last hours, specifically ESPN, spoke that the PSG would have Gameiro among its candidates to replace Cavani, as long as the transfer of the Uruguayan to Atlético de Madrid is closed (Chelsea and United also want it), a red and white club that was also raised for January although with the small mouth the signings of Alcácer and even recovered the reports on Rodrigo. But both were discarded and focused their efforts on Cavani, for which they offer 10 million and with which, as they assure AS, they would have an agreement for three seasons. Ten days left of the market and the thing goes forward. Four names monopolize the focus in the last hours: Rodrigo Moreno, Paco Alcácer, Edinson Cavani and Kevin Gameiro. Valencia is in the middle of three of those fronts, Barcelona, ​​Atlético, Borussia Dortmund and PSG are the other actors of stories that go in parallel but have linked chapters.Sports world He included Rodrigo Moreno in a list of strikers who would manage Barcelona to replace Luis Suarez (Aubameyang and Timo Werner were also on the list of the newspaper published in Barcelona). In turn, the Italian journalist Di Marzio, with a portal specialized in the market, said that Jorge Mendes was in negotiations with Barcelona for the transfer of the Valencia international. Valencia, beyond Rodrigo, has Paco Alcácer between eyebrow and eyebrow. AS gave exclusively last Friday that Lim wanted to recover the one who was a black and white quarry. The operation was in mind for both summer and now in January, although, if it took place now in January the exit of Kevin Gameiro and Rubén Sobrino, would be knocked on the door of Borussia by Alcácer. But Borussia does not need to be tested much.last_img read more
