Looking for a central defender to strengthen this winter, Valencia targets Alvaro Gonzalez. A track that makes the defender of OM reflect, on which Jorge Sampaoli relies quite little.
A new suitor for Alvaro Gonzalez . Valencia FC needs a central defender and the player of OM is one of the priorities of the Spanish club today. A little upset to see his name circulating in transfer rumors, while he extended last spring and his primary intention is to stay in Marseille, Alvaro is considering bouncing back in Spain, at least for this second part of the season. And the interest of FC Valence does not leave him insensitive.
The more or less concrete approaches of Bordeaux, Strasbourg or Saint-Étienne had not seduced the Spaniard, who considers deserving a club of a higher standard. Even if FC Valence is currently classified in the middle of the table in La Liga (9th), the Valencian club are only four points away from qualifying places for the European Cup and remain a reputable team on the other side of the Pyrenees. .
Alvaro representatives discuss with Valencia
The Spaniard of 32 years old knows the region well having worked in Villarreal before joining Marseille. Seeing him revive at FC Valencia, which needs a defender of his profile, is a real possibility. The approach is concrete, and could be a game-changer, while Alvaro’s playing time (under contract until 2024) is at the very least reduced under Jorge Sampaoli. The defender, who has played matches this season, is aware of this.
Alvaro’s representatives are therefore in discussions with FC Valence. Olympian source, however, it is said that two clubs have not yet made contact. But the solution could come from a loan with an option to buy. OM must part with certain salaries to carry out the rest of their winter recruitment.
