Date 2021-04-18 18:30 GMT+1

Valencia CF had an unusual and frustrating game last weekend with the team going down 2-0 in the first half against Real Sociedad, with Soler missing a penalty in the middle of the first half to put Valencia CF up, then Real Sociedad punishing Valencia CF twice, due to some poor defending and passing by Valencia players. 

With the way Valencia CF played it didn't seem like there is a chance to comebak at all, in fact with the silly mistakes players were making in the back it was a scare if we'd concede more goals and be embraced by Real Sociedad. Fortunately luck was on Valencia's side and the referee awarded Valencia CF another penalty, it was a soft penalty, the referee might have not given it and no one would have though anything of it, but as it so happen he did give the penalty and that time Daniel Wass was precise from the penalty spot. I was thinking 'okay we got one back, but its 1 goal from two penalties, how can we score from play' and then the unexpected happened, Gabriel Paulista who was at fault for the second goal scored the equalizer for Valencia CF with a powerful header.

Valencia CF offers a new plan for Nou Mestalla

Valencia CF has recently been in trouble with the local government as the previous contract was breached by Valencia CF by not finishing the new stadium and developing the surrounding place as a result of the government giving them the space.

There were threats that Valencia CF would have to pay penalties and these would have been further costs to the club, which is already under big financial pressure. Basically they offered an explanation of the situation with the stadium, how they were complying with the ATE and future plans and promises.

In the new application for changes to the ATE the club is moving the competition date for the stadium and its surroundings to 2026 and offers up a "concrete" plan on how it would go about its business to finish it. 

Claudio Ranieri to return to Valencia CF?

Reports from Italy are suggesting that Valencia CF want to bring back Claudio Ranieri for the third time in a bid to rebuild the squad and improve our younger players. Claudio Ranieri is well known for taking weak teams and building them up to become serious competitors ever since the start of his career. He is known as the tinker because he is always trying new stuff, new tactics and formation, so he'll rebuild a team and make them much better competitors, but will continue tinkering to the point where at some point they regress to a serious degree and then he is sacked.

Ranieri was the coach of Cagliari between 1988 and 1991, taking the Casteddu from Serie C to Serie A in three years, so its not wonder that they are also interested in bringing Ranieri to their side. Ranieri's contract expires this season with Sampdoria and his contract still hasn't been extended, which means he is most likely going to be a free agent in the summer.

Is Maxi Gomez sale the fix for Valencia CF financial issues?

There has been a lot of reports lately about players being sold and bought by Valencia CF, with one of the most mentioned names being Goncalo Guedes. I reported about Valencia CF planning to sell Goncalo Guedes quite a while ago and if you go and read that article you'll see that Valencia CF has financial pressure from multiple sides, including the Valencian government who are planning to impose certain penalties as the club has done met its obligations to build the new Mestalla in the timeframe agreed with the city and actually renegotiated few times as well. 

Either way Valencia CF have to acquire about 30 million euros to balance the books for this year and the easiest target seemed to be Guedes as he hasn't really justified his high price tag, but with his performances improving significantly the past couple of matches, his sale has become more complicated. He's shown that he can be an asset to Valencia CF and overall this season he's been one of the better performing players overall, though he's had his ups and downs like all of the rest of our players. 

To make matters even more complicated Wolves has now entered the picture and want to purchase Guedes, their initial plan was about 20 million euros plus Patrick Cutrone, though Valencia CF have recently been interested in Rafa Mir who is also a Wolves player, though realistically I doubt Rafa Mir would want to join Valencia CF as he didn't leave on the best of terms and there are clubs like Sevilla and Atletico Madrid interested in him.

Valencia CF to reacquire Rafa Mir?

Valencia CF sold Rafa Mir in 2018 to Premier League club Wolves who incidentally also have former Valencia CF coach Nuno Santo managing them. On 24 November 2015, Mir was called up to the main squad by manager Nuno Espírito Santo. So no wonder Wolves purchased Rafa Mir, although he was instantly loaned out and has been loaned out each consecutive season.

Wolves last loaned Rafa mir to Huesca, and he's broken through with them and scored 15 goals in all competitions, also providing several assists. He has scored in each of their last six matches and of course with that he brought big attention on to himself.

Samu Costa to join Valencia CF?

Samu Costa to join Valencia CF this summer? Valencia CF is supposedly interested in Almeria's midfielder Samu Costa who has joined them on a loan for the 2020/21 season and has featured 11 times for them so far. Samuel Costa is a Portuguese footballer who is a youth product of Braga football club, he joined Braga's B team in 2019 and the following year was promoted to the first team, but shorty after loaned out of UD Almeria. 

His agent is Jorge Mendes and according to reports his price tag is 6 million euros for 60% of the players rights. Very steep price tag for a player who's barely featured 11 times for UD Almeria and who only played one match for Braga before being loaned out, but we all know Jorge Mendese's players are usually overpriced flops or one season wonders. Considering Peter Lim and Jorge Mendes are close friends though, it wouldn't surprise me if Valencia CF slashed 6 million euros for this player.
