Sevco have tried their best to manipulate the media in order to make Dembele millions from Alfredo Morelos or Borna Barasic and have ultimately failed, the Klan have now suffered a blow in their last ditch attempt at salvation as Ryan Kent’s Leeds interest suffers similar fate.
The was a few media stories in the papers that newly promoted English side Leeds United were chasing the former Liverpool youth winger and were even going to offer treble of what Sevco valued him at.
That all came crashing down as its confirmed that Leeds are ready to make moves for other targets as they have agreed terms with Valencia’s Rodrigo as the striker will cost them around £30 million.
The media reported:
Leeds are on the verge of making their first marquee signing since returning to the Premier League after reaching an agreement with Valencia for the transfer of Spain striker Rodrigo.
The La Liga club announced on their website on Tuesday evening that a deal in principle has been agreed, for a reported £30m fee. Personal terms and a medical for the player are still to be finalised.
The 29-year-old has scored 59 goals in 220 games for Valencia since joining from Benfica in 2014, initially on loan, and would boost Marcelo Bielsa’s attacking options ahead of Leeds’ first season back in the English top flight for 16 years.
A statement on Valencia’s official website read: “Valencia CF have reached a preliminary agreement with Leeds United FC this Tuesday for the transfer of Rodrigo Moreno, at the expense of completing all the documentation and other formalities and passing the mandatory medical examination.
“Valencia CF want to thank [Rodrigo] for his commitment and effort over the last six seasons,” the statement added. “Valencia wish him all the best in this new stage of his sports career.”
Once they realise that Kent isn’t wanted either, we wonder what klan player will be the next £30 million player.
