Baraja’s plan at Valencia CF puts a signing within Osasuna’s shot: differential player


After the storm comes the calm, and in the Valencianista team there is a certain atmosphere of tranquility, but the coach does not want to stop for a single second and has already begun to cut the weeds on his lawn.

It is assumed that all the teams have gone on vacation, but Rubén Baraja does not want to stop and is already working on planning the Valencia CF 2023-24. The achievement obtained in this last section of the championship (saving the category) must be revalidated in the next one, while exalting its demands and objectives.

As expected, the main goal for the 2023-24 campaign will be to become LaLiga Santander champion and, if possible, the Copa del Rey. To achieve this, Rubén Baraja must change all the pieces that have not worked well since he arrived on the Che bench. It has precisely started with two players that he does not want to see in his squad, and one of them interests the CA Osasuna.

Samu Castillejo appeared on the CA Osasuna agenda, since Baraja put him in his discard folder.

The Valladolid coach has a contract until June 30, but he will surely continue for another year. This has allowed him to make the first decisions for the following season, and he has determined that two players will not continue in his project. The first of these was the right winger Samu Castillejo and then the striker Edinson Cavani.

From the coach’s perspective, these two players are collecting high chips and are not contributing in proportion. It was known that the Uruguayan was not going to fulfill his last year of contract, since he has two offers from South America. But in the case of the man from Malaga, it was a surprise, since the attacker expressed his desire to continue wearing the black and white elastic.

The rojillo box has been interested in having the services of the extreme right, who had his heyday at AC Milan. It is true that in this last season aboard the Valencianista team, his performance was low, but Jagoba Arrasate knows how to get the most out of his potential. Since the coach doesn’t want to count on him anymore, what better opportunity than this for his signing?

The point is that Castillejo still has a contract with Valencia CF until 2025, and his base price is 8 million euros. Analyzing the economic situation of the black and white entity, it is obvious that they will ask for a large sum to sign the Andalusian’s departure. The best formula that Osasuna has is to request a transfer with a purchase option at a low price.
