With a tight budget, Valencia usually only targets cheap transfer items. Due to the imminent “liquidation” of a series of faces in the defense, Valencia has targeted Botia as a quality enhancement, at an affordable price.
Botia is a former Barca player and the Catalan club have an option to buy him back at the end of this season for just 2.4 million euros. Therefore, if they want to have Botia, Valencia will have to contact Gijon right in the winter transfer window that just opened yesterday (1/1).
In addition, coach Unai Emery also wants to strengthen the young striker Viera, who is playing impressively in the Segunda tournament in the color of Las Palmas. The 22-year-old striker has scored 6 goals in 15 games since the beginning of the season and has a contract until 2013.
Also related to Valencia’s personnel situation, rising defender Jordi Alba said he does not want to rush to renew his contract with the Mestalla team. The Spanish player is being persuaded by Barca and Man Utd to say: “I have received a number of invitations and my agent will be in charge. I’m not too concerned about that because I trust my agent.”
“Things are going and what has to come will come. But you can rest assured that I’m giving my best and will do my best for Valencia. Other than that, I don’t care about that. anything else at the moment” – Alba shared more.
