Barcelona’s authorities have officially admitted that the team is negotiating with Rodrigo. Spanish striker from Valencia was excellent last season. Barca needs a good striker, and the club is interested in Moreno’s services.
Jorge Mendes and Anil Murthy are in Barcelona for negotiations
As you may know, Anil Murthy is the president of Valencia. Portuguese Jorge Mendes is the agent of Rodrigo Moreno and wants his client to have a good contract in Barcelona as possible. The Catalonian team needs a good striker. Rodrigo Moreno is the irreplaceable of the Spanish national team, especially in current formation. Rodrigo has scored many goals last season for Valencia and also influenced in many matches this season. Keep in mind that Rodrigo Moreno was a substitution against Barcelona on Saturday evening. Valencia scored two goals, and Moreno was one of the best players on the field in the second half of the match. When Quique Setien was asked about the new striker, the coach admitted the interest in various forwards. Rodrigo Moreno is the most accessible because the owner of Valencia, Peter Lim, is ready to let him go.
60 Million Euros for Rodrigo Moreno
Barcelona is devastated by the latest results. Quique Setien’s team could only score three goals in the last three matches. At some point, that result could be perfect for the average and standard squad but not for Barcelona. The team lost the first position to Real Madrid. Lost away match against Valencia and struggled in Copa Del Rey against unknown team FC Ibiza.
After Luis Suarez’s injury, the team is struggling to score the goal. Lionel Messi can’t be the only player to save the whole team and take all possible points in a long-run tournament. Just like other players, Lionel Messi needs help from an actual striker who will be in the penalty area to score.
Jorge Mendes believes that negotiations are almost over. Valencia is asking for 60 Million Euros. Keep in mind that Barcelona has offered different options such as loan + buyout in summer, etc. The end of January will officially announce the transfer.
