Valencia have rejected a £32m bid from Chelsea for Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes, as per Sky Sources.
The midfielder was in action on Tuesday as Portugal saw a 1-goal lead slip to see their opening fixture of Euro 2016 ending in stalemate.
He was also the provider for the Nani goal that gave Portugal a short-lived lead in the first half.
While the transfer fee mentioned above is substantial for any player, it is reported that Valencia have rejected this bid due to a clause between them and the former club of Gomes, Benfica.
As per that clause, the Portuguese club will make 25% of any fee on which Valencia will sell the young midfielder.
Therefore, in order to make the most of their star asset, Valencia are demanding a staggering £42 million from the Blues.
If Chelsea are to meet the valuation of Valencia, the Spanish club will be able to generate the proposed £32Million from the departure of Gomes, even after paying 25% to Benfica.
However, if reports coming out are believed to be true, Chelsea aren’t willing to increase their bid for the midfielder.
As a result, they are considering to move onto their next target.
