Valencia will make a permanent bid for on-loan star Goncalo Guedes after an impressive season at the Mestalla, according to the player’s father.
In a discussion with radio station Tribuna Deportiva, Rogerio Guedes stated that Los Che’s owner, Peter Lim, has let it be known that the club will look into signing the 21-year-old from parent club Paris Saint-Germain.
French newspaper Le Parisien reported last week that PSG are willing to negotiate and sell the forward for €40 million to abide by UEFA’S Financial Fair Play regulations.
From Paris to Valencia
Mr Guedes told the station: “I don’t think Valencia are going to let go of this opportunity considering that next season they will play in the Champions League.
“I don’t believe Goncalo’s future belongs in Paris because of its sporting structure. To have Goncalo sitting on the bench does not interest PSG. If Goncalo continues at Valencia everyone wins.”
The Portuguese winger signed for PSG in a €30 million deal from Benfica in January 2017, with his contract running until 2021.
Guedes key for Los Che
After making just seven appearances for the French capital’s side, he was sent on loan to Valencia and has featured regularly for Marcelinho’s side, scoring four goals and setting up nine more, to help Los Che reach a top four spot.
Guedes’ blistering pace and fantastic ability with the ball at his feet has seen some label him as one of the most exciting players to watch in La Liga. His father believes that by staying at Valencia, his son can prove to be a more valuable asset to the club, before moving on for a pricey sum.
