Reports in Spain state that Valencia have decided to buy Geoffrey Kondogbia outright from Inter in the summer.
The French midfielder is on loan with the Liga side, who have the option to make the deal permanent for €25m.
After forcing his way out in the summer and admitting he struggled with the pressure, Kondogbia is virtually certain not to return to the Nerazzurri, but so far there has been no movement from Valencia.
However, Super Deporte reports that the club assured Kondogbia at the weekend that they do intend to pay the clause.
At this point it’s not clear if they will pay the entire €25m, or do a deal which sees Joao Cancelo stay at Inter permanently.
