Manchester City fans have read the Mirror in the Football Transfer Tavern and have found out that Alvaro Negredo is eyeing a permanent move to Valencia next summer.
The Spanish side are contractually obliged to pay £25m for the explosive striker should they seek to make it a permanent after the loan spell has expired.
The 29-year-old seeked a loan move last summer after failing to settle into English life, despite being in the form of his life at certain stages of the season.
Although he is clearly more settled now, there is a possibility he could be returning to the Etihad, but that is only if Valencia fail to qualify for the Champions League.
But contradicting these rumours is the fact that City are convinced that there was a contractual agreement in place where they will hand over £25m for Negredo next summer.
The reason why the move was initially a loan is because last summer Peter Lim was in the process of buying Valencia, meaning his funds were not available straight away.
But now the businessman now owns the club, meaning City are expected to be fully paid in exchange for Negredo next summer.
Manchester City fans. Considering Alvaro Negredo’s quality, do you think you should look to offload an unsettled player rather than trying to keep hold of him? Let us know your thoughts below.
