Official: Javi Fuego to Espanyol

Its official, Javi Fuego has been sold to RC Espanyol for a sum of around 2 million euros. Valencia CF were looking to offload the experienced defensive midfielder as his contribution to the team was small last season and even worse during preseason where the coach deemed him surplus to requirements.

Peter Lim was seen in England as its thought he is personally overseeing the sales of Shkodran Mustafi to Arsenal and Aymen Abdennour to Everton. Both these sales would bring in a combined 50 million euros and a huge salary reduction, which means Peter Lim can set aside 20 million euros for new arrivals like Deportivo La Coruna - Benfica defender Sidnei, as well as defensive midfelder Mario Suarez who will cost around 10 million euros to bring, with another 10 million to bring in Sidnei.
