Juventus have joined the race to sign Joao Cancelo, prompting Valencia to plan a permanent move for Geoffrey Kondogbia.
Los Che are keen to agree a deal for French midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, who has been impressing on loan at the Mestalla and is playing a big part in their success on the field.
A lack of funds has so far stopped them from making a substantial move, as-well as an attempt to swap Cancelo, who joined Inter Milan as part of the deal for Kondogbia.
Cancelo has been on a season long loan with the Milanese giants, who have the option of making the move permanent for €35m.
The Italian club had disciplined the Portuguese international earlier this season after a number of problems in training, but it is understood they are now keen to keep hold of his services – but no substantial move has been made.
Valencia have been handed a deadline of 30th June to make Kondogbia’s move permanent, and whilst that was deemed to depend on Inter’s interest in Cancelo – officials at the Spanish club have become buoyed by interest from Juve.
Juve are keen to explore a potential deal, which would give Valencia the funds to submit a bid for Kondogbia.
Cancelo have featured just eight times in the league for Inter, plus twice in the cup and he will be hoping to gain more playing time with the World Cup in Russia this summer fast approaching.
