Valencia CF preseason

Valencia CF is still trying to maneuver in the transfer market with little success. The number one reinforcement that Jose Bordalas wants is a new central defender is order to try and improve our defense and build from there. 
Valencia CF is also hoping to sell Mouctar Doakhaby and buy an additional defender as well, but so far there has been no interest for Diakhaby and how could there be? He has been a bad performer and in a money stricken year due to Covid19 no club is willing to spend money on an average player, everyone is looking for the next big star.

Valencia CF preseason starts on the 16th of July against Villarreal CF, then about a week later it continues with Artomitos, then Cartagena, Real Zaragoza and culminating with Levante UD on July 30th. The biggest challenge this preseason is our first match against Villarreal, but from then it actually get easier, then finally the two last matches are a decent measure to see where our team stands, I'm hoping for wins against Zaragoza and Levante to show that the team has improved over last season!

Jose Bordalas want to see new players arrive before the friendly matches start, as he wants to see those players compete and get to know their skills that way, but it seems less and less likely that he'll get his wishes. 

Remember that the club still wants to sell players in the region of 30 million euros in order to balance the budget and have a little money leftover for few cheap "reinforcements". Ultimately the club may be planning to go on a loan spree and get players on loan to help us this season with a purchase option added.

There is no other news, there is barely any transfer speculation either, unless the team sells big for 30+ million euros we can't even talk about bringing players in. In terms of who leaves there are multiple options, Guedes, Gaya, Diakhaby, Kang-In Lee, Cheryshev, Cillessen are all on the list.
