Valencia to pay Kondogbia clause

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.

Zaza to leave Valencia for €5m?

Valencia could reportedly sell Simone Zaza this summer for just €5m, despite paying €16m for the Italy striker less than a year ago.

According to Gol Digital, Geoffrey Kondogbia has agreed a contract with Valencia, which would see him earn less than he did at Inter.

However, Los Che must pay the Nerazzurri €25m to keep the midfielder permanently – and the broadcaster warns they currently cannot afford him.

Nonetheless, a solution put forward is Zaza being sold for a cut-price €5m, given their desperation to raise funds.

Inter want to redeem Cancelo

Inter are reportedly keen to sign Joao Cancelo outright from Valencia, but they have to make sales first.

The Portuguese arrived on loan in the summer, with a €35m option to buy before the end of the season.

Now Tuttosport is reporting that the Nerazzurri are keen to make the move permanent, but they have to raise the money to stay within Financial Fair Play limits.

A large portion could come from Geoffrey Kondogbia moving permanently to Valencia, per the €25m option to buy in his loan deal.

The midfielder’s representative Evans Kondogbia – who is also his brother – said on Friday that his priority was now Valencia, but looking back, “maybe Milan can manage external situations better” and he should’ve gone there instead.

The Nerazzurri were top of the Serie A table in December, but have now plummeted to fifth place with one win in two months.

“I expected this to happen,” said Bellugi on Tuttomercatoweb. “At the start of the season when everyone was praising the Nerazzurri, you just had to watch their games to see how they were getting these victories…

Kondogbia back to Inter?

Spanish reports claim Valencia might not be in a financial position to buy Geoffrey Kondogbia outright from Inter.

The midfielder was sent out on loan in the summer and impressed, contributing three goals and one assist in 20 Liga appearances.

Kondogbia is also content with Los Che and the idea had been to activate the €25m option to buy.

However, Marca now claim that the club’s finances are too stretched to afford the transfer, even if they do qualify for the Champions League.
