Álvaro Negredo’s unimpressive loan spell at Middlesbrough keeps being a problem for Valencia.
The club didn’t know what to do with the player’s high wages last summer, and that’s why he ended up going to Middlesbrough, where he’s scored 10 goals this season.
Local outlet Deporte Valenciano has a story today explaining the difficulty the Spanish side will have to sell the player in the next transfer window, as he’s not wanted in Spain.
England is mentioned as the only European country who could afford to have him, although this spell in the Premier League with Middlesbrough didn’t leave a huge impression.
That’s why they point out the Chinese league as a solution for Negredo. After all, that’s where the money is, and he would be treated like ‘a God’.
What Valencia would have to find is what the Middlesbrough loanee wants himself, as he did not accept a move to Asia last summer. Given his age, he turns 32 in August, and the current situation, the hope a positive answer will come from him this time.
