The chances that Valencia Rodrigo’s striker to become a player in Barcelona have dramatically grown in recent days, writes Sport. According to the publication, the Catalans have begun negotiations with the “bats” for the 28-year-old player, whose ransom clause amounts to 120 million euros.
Rodrigo is among the attacking players who best meet the criteria of the Barcelona bosses. They appreciate its versatility and employability as well as its ability to collaborate with its teammates, with ten of its assistants last season being proof of that. He is one of Ernesto Valverde’s favorite strikers and is the “ninth” of the Spanish national team. In recent years, Barca has often been shopping from Valencia, with recent examples being Paco Alcasser, Andre Gomes, and Zheisson Murray. “Los Angeles” is interested in Jasper Silesian and Denis Suarez, and this may make it easier for the deal, although the price of the Dutch goalkeeper is high.
Roma is also interested in Rodrigo, and the Italian club is ready to offer 70 million euros for him and also to raise his salary significantly. Valencia, however, will also hear the proposal of the Catalans.
