Sport: Barca target Rodrigo could be available for only €30m
- Valencia need €30m before July to balance their budget.
- Despite having a €120m release clause, the striker could be sold for much less.
- Barcelona are aware of the situation.
- Denis Suarez could be included in the deal.
According to Sport, Valencia need to balance their budget before July 1 and need €30m. Reportedly, Barcelona's target Rodrigo Moreno could be available for this price. Los Che's president Anil Murthy has confirmed the information hinting that the club doesn't want to 'undersell' the player but they are in dire need of the money.
Barcelona allegedly know about the Copa del Rey champions' situation and consider a swoop for the 28-year-old. Moreover, Denis Suarez, who returned from his loan at Arsenal, could be included in the deal. Marcelino, Valencia's coach, is said to be a fan of the player and would happily welcome him at the club.
Blaugrana reportedly like the Brazilian-born Spanish international for several reasons. First of all, he already knows the league and won't need time to adapt. Additionally, Moreno can play both as a striker and a right winger, this would let the coach give more rest to both Luis Suarez and Leo Messi.
However, Valencia's president also stated that there are several clubs closely following the player. For example, Serie A club Roma have also been linked with a potential move. As for Rodrigo, the player recently revealed in an interview that he can't guarantee he'll continue at the club next season.
