Report: Valencia Reject £32m Chelsea bid for midfielder- not enough


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.
