Danilo Barbosa to cost Valencia CF 15 million

Superdeporte reports that Danilo Barbosa the new Valencia CF player here on a 1 year loan deal from SC Braga will ultimately cost Valencia CF 15 million euros and the club have to purchase the player at the end of the season, much like the deal for Negredo with City.

This is huge news if its true, I got information that the player was to be purchased for close to his value at around 7 million euros and it turned out the player moved to Valencia CF on a 1 year loan deal. Now it seems that the loan deal was agreed upon because the player will cost 15 million euros, money which the club can't spent this year.

The report suggests that Danilo agent Jorge Mendes also owns 90% of his rights, so he will essentially receive 14 million euros from the deal. Talk about overvalued player, 15 million euros is huge, in contrast Arturo Vidal moved to Juventus for 16 million euros, we purchase Nicolas Otamendi from Porto for 13 million euros, etc...
