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.

In the last loan deal Huesca negotiated a purchase option for Rafa Mir at the end of this season for 10 million euros. Considering they are a small and poor team 10 million might be too high of a price to afford, so other teams are showing interest in Rafa Mir. Some of the interested clubs are Sevilla, Real Betis and Atletico Madrid, with Valencia CF jumping in now and asking about the player. 

I've just reported how Wolves are interested in Valencia's Goncalo Guedes and this new development could make things even more interesting. Wolves were prepared to offer 20 million euros plus Cutrone for Gudes, but considering Valencia CF are interested in Rafa Mir, they could offer Rafa Mir instead as he has made his intentions of leaving Wolves this summer known, so that could be an even better deal for them.

Of course losing Goncalo Guedes would be devastating as it seems he is our only real threat in attacks and has been slowly but surely playing better and better, so it would be a real shame if we lose an in form Guedes.
