Valencia CF to sell Mouctar Diakhaby

Valencia CF wants to sell Mouctar Diakhaby and rebuild the back line in accordance to what the new coach Jose Bordalas wants. The new coach has identified Mouctar Diakhaby as the weakest link at the back and thus Valencia CF will try and sell the player and bring in al alternative with the money from the sale. While Diakhaby is not viewed in high regard in Spain, there are still some French clubs that view him in a positive light and might want to acquire the player.

Mouctar Diakhavy is worth about 10 million euros, I think that is a bit on the high side, so realistically more like 7-8 million euros. One of the names mentioned to arrive at Valencia CF was David Timor from Getafe CF and while he is generally a defensive midfielder he does also play center back and could easily slot in that position. He is also valued at only 1.5 million euros, but even if realistically his price is 3 million that is still worth it for Valencia CF, as the club would get a replacement for Diakhaby and be up 4-5 million euros.
