Wolves continue to be featured in Italian Joao Cancelo claims, and on Tuesday they feature in Gazzetta dello Sport’s article on the player.
The grand old Italian newspaper are covering the complicated situation around the player. It’s explained Juventus have offered Valencia a €5 loan fee with a compulsory purchase clause of €35m next summer.
This was knocked back, because Valencia need cash now, explains Gazzetta. According to the claims, the Spanish club need to raise €40m by the end of June to comply with FFP and expect to get all of that from Cancelo’s sale.
It’s stated Wolves are ‘more than willing’ to provide that, although it’s not explicitly claimed the Premier League club have offered such an amount. Cancelo prefers Juventus and it’s believed the Turin club feel they can pressure Valencia the closer that June 30th deadline comes. But for that to work they have to actually provide some serious money.
Valencia, meanwhile, are said to be confident Jorge Mendes can find a solution for Cancelo, and it’s claimed that could lead the agent to try and force the Wolves route.
Alternatively, Juventus are also hoping a club will come in with a big offer for Valencia’s Rodrigo, which they believe would then make the loan and clause approach more acceptable.
