Valencia have officially confirmed that they’ve exercised their option to sign Geoffrey Kondogbia outright from Inter.
The French midfielder joined Los Che in the summer of 2017, with an option to buy him permanently before May 31.
“Valencia CF have exercised this Thursday their buy-out clause in Geoffrey Kondgobia's loan deal from Inter, with the Frenchman putting pen to paper on a contract with the club that stretches until 2022,” a statement on the club’s official website confirms.
“Kondogbia’s release clause will be set at €80m. The 24 year old was a key part of Marcelino’s midfield in his first season at Mestalla, making 31 league appearances and scoring four goals.”
