Valencia have confirmed that boss Marcelino will be offered a new and improved deal this summer.
Los Che are determined to keep the 52-year-old at the club and see him commit to a new lengthy contract, following last season’s impressive campaign, which saw them qualify for the Champions League.
General manager Mateo Alemany has been speaking to the press regarding future plans at the club and in particular the success of Marcelino and his future.
“We have a good relationship. Marcelino is happy with us and we are happy with him,” Alemany told a Press conference.
“We will have to find the right moment and the best time is when there is no competitions going on.
“In the coming months we will be able to sit down with the advantage that we now know each other well.
“The fans also know him and the matter must coincide for when there isn’t the pressure of matches, so in the not too distant future there will be news,” he promised.
Key duo set to remain at the club too
Goncalo Guedes has told Paris Saint Germain that he would like to join Valencia this summer.
Having signed for Los Che on a loan deal, Guedes has been linked with a permanent move to the Mestalla but problems over a transfer fee have halted such a deal commencing thus far.
PSG officials are keen to allow the winger to leave this summer as they look to improve their finances ahead of a Financial Fairplay assessment.
Super Deporte claim that Guedes, 21, has now requested to leave the club for Valencia and asked his representatives to begin talks.
Guedes’ potential permanent deal will be superb news to Valencia as they look to continue their impressive form next season and it could follow an extra boost after reports surfaced that Geoffrey Kondogbia’s permanent move from Inter Milan is all-but done and dusted.
The French midfielder has arguably been Valencia’s best player this season and negotiations are said to have gone well with the Italian club.
