The club and the captain are both seeking an outcome that suits both parties before 30 June. Rodrigo is under contract until 2022 and has a 120M buy-out.

Rodrigo Moreno has been granted permission by Valencia to study any offers which comes in from other clubs and if any of them interest the player, the club will be open to doing business. According to club sources, Valencia have been happy with Rodrigo's professional attitude since he arrived at Mestalla in 2014 and will equally respect his decision if he decides to move on.

Valencia need to sell

The 28-year-old forward has a retention clause set at 120 million euros but could be released for 50 million euros as Valencia need to sell at least one player this summer to balance the books and comply with Financial Fair Play regulations. Cashing in on Rodrigo would alleviate their economic concerns and the best outcomes would if if they can push a sale through before 30 June, when the club has to declare their budget results for the 2018/19 season.

Guedes up front

However in public, Valencia have to paint a different picture as Rodrigo is under contract until 2022 and in theory, cannot negotiate with other clubs. Several clubs are believed to be interested in the player - including Atlético de Madrid, Barcelona and Napoli. Rodrigo's exit would see Gonçalo Guedes take over the centre-forward role but Valencia would still need to make adjustments to their attack and have lined up Villarreal's Denis Cheryshev Alavés' Jonny and Denis Suárez as possible summer reinforcements.
