A report in Goal claims that Valencia, who was reported to have interest a couple of weeks ago, are confident that Ayoze Perez will leave Newcastle this summer.
In March, Ayoze made some comments in an interview on El Chiringuito TV about one day returning to his home country to play.
We are not sure if Goal is referencing those past comments or if there are any recent updates to Perez wishing to return home this summer.
The report adds that sources close to Valencia claim Ayoze is ready to return to Spain and that an offer is being prepared.
Ayoze Perez– is that Valencia calling?
However, Goal also claims that Valencia would be unable to match Newcastle’s reported valuation of €25 for Ayoze. This development could make for an interesting situation between club and player.
Valencia would seem to appeal to Ayoze as they will compete in the Champions League next season while Newcastle will most likely struggle to be safe unless drastic measures are taken over the next month.
Ayoze will have been very dissatisfied with the outcome of Rafa’s contract negotiations and we would have to believe he will entertain any offers that come his way.
With the recent departure of Rafa, we have to be prepared for these links for our top players as it is going to be a deluge of them over the next six weeks.
This is what Ayoze tweeted on that now infamous Monday of June 24th, 2019:
Gracias @rafabenitezweb por estos años, mucha suerte en tus nuevos proyectos! Eres un mister ?
