Spanish club Valencia are planning a mass clearout of their squad this summer as the club is looking to end their financial troubles. The club has been suffering from the corona virus pandemic, despite their owner Peter Lim being a multi-billionaire. The Singaporean business man is refusing to invest money into the club and has instructed a massive clear out to rebuild the club from its own academy.
Names on the list are Rodrigo Moreno, Kevin Gameiro, Jasper Cillessen, defenders Eliaquim Mangala and Mouctar Diakhaby, Dani Parejo, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Francis Coquelin, Ruben Sobrino and Thierry Correia have all been told they have no futures at the Mestalla. The club is also willing to sell Goncalo Guedes but will only sell the Portuguese international if an interested club is willing to pay €50m.
It has been a chaotic season at Valencia with three manager appointments and a free fall on the La Liga table in the second half of the season. The club has fallen into ninth position and are looking to fail to qualify for European football next season. Owner Peter Lim has instructed the club to rebuild their squad using players from its own academy, which is considered to be one of the best in Spain, having delivered players like David Silva and Juan Mata in the past.
Ferran Torres, the club’s most talented player, will also be sold this summer if a club will meet their demands. Manchester United and Manchester City are interested in signing the Spanish U21 international and could be willing to pay a large fee to lure him towards the Premier League. Valencia are demanding a fee around €60m for the winger, who has also been linked with Juventus and Atletico Madrid in recent weeks.
