Valencia hand Rodrigo Moreno contract extension to 2022

The forward has signed on to remain at Mestalla for the next five years while the club have increased his minimum release clause to 120 million euros.

El Valencia renueva a Rodrigo Moreno hasta el año 2022.

Rodrigo Moreno has put pen to paper on a new deal at Valencia tying him to the Mestalla club until 2022, with the club hiking his minimum release clause to 120 million euros.

Rodrigo was one of the first signings of the Peter Lim era and is now the third longest-serving player in Marcelino’s squad behind only Dani Parejo and José Luis Gayá. Initially arriving on loan from Benfica in 2014, Valencia exercised their option to make the move permanent a year later for 30 million euros.

Rodrigo's form earns Spain recall

Rodrigo’s original contract expired in 2019 but his stellar performances this season have persuaded Valencia to increase his contract by a further three seasons. Operating as a secondary striker behind Simone Zaza, Rodrigo has scored seven times in LaLiga this season and provided four assists, which was sufficient for Julen Lopetegui to call him up for a third Spain cap in the friendly match against Russia earlier in November.
