Valencia boss Marcelino claims his side have landed themselves a bargain in former Inter midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, who cost €25m.
Valencia redeemed their option to buy Kondogbia on Thursday after a 2017-18 campaign that yielded four goals in 36 appearances from the Frenchman and a Champions League finish in La Liga.
“He’s a player who really did everything possible to join Valencia,” the Coach told Marca.
“He was the true architect of his performances. We always try to convey security and confidence to our players, and he earned it.
“Our work was very simple. Once you’ve considered the figures and his performance, I’d say that we’re talking about a player who’s been bought for little.”
