Real Madrid: Borja Mayoral to Valencia... if Rodrigo leaves
Mayoral is Valencia's first choice although they face competition from Lazio and Fiorentina. Leeds officials are in Valencia to negotiate terms for Rodrigo.
Leeds in Valencia for Rodrigo
Meanwhile, Leeds United controlling shareholder Andrea Radrizzani and Director of Football Victor Orta are in Valencia to negotiate with Anil Murthy for Rodrigo. Like with Mayoral's case, no middle ground has been reached for a deal to go through although Valencia know that they will not receive a fee anywhere near the 55 million euros which Atlético tabled for the player this time last year. The club, who need to sell Rodrigo and possibly Jasper Cillessen and Jose Luis Gayà as well, would be willing to let the Spain striker go for a fee somewhere around the 40 million euro mark.
With Rodrigo on his way out of Mestalla, Maxi Gómez and Borja will be Javi Gracia's first choice forwards in a restructured side - whether Mayoral ends up joining or not. Mayoral also has offers from Lazio and Fiorentina but would prefer to remain in Spain and Valencia is his first option. Lazio's initial offer of 15 million euros for the striker was turned down by Florentino Pérez.
