Valencia CF has taken a decisive step to part with defender Mouctar Diakhaby this summer, just six months after renewing his contract until 2027
After a season in which he began as one of the pillars for Gattuso, Diakhaby has ended up on the Valencia CF transfer list. The Valencian team has already informed the Guinean footballer that it is not part of their plans for next season and that they were willing to listen to offers. But the footballer who grew up in the Olympique de Lyon academy does not want to change scenery.
So far, the defender has refused to listen to the proposals. Faced with this situation, the club has changed its strategy and has shown interest in other defenders. Something that has caused Diakhaby considered leaving Valencia CF knowing that if he doesn’t, he could spend a full year on the bench.
Valencia CF puts pressure on Diakhaby to leave
Valencia CF has made clear its desire to get rid of Mouctar Diakhaby during this transfer market. The Valencian club seeks to strengthen its squad and generate income through the sale of some of its players. Thus, the central defender has been identified as one of the footballers with the greatest potential to generate a significant sum of money.
Aware that they could get more than 5 million euros with his sale, the Valencian club have been looking for offers for the player. But not only that, but they have also been looking for a replacement for the center of the rear. AND They have found a perfect player in Lucas Martínez Quarta to fill the position.
Martínez Quarta, the first option of the Valencian club
As we have been able to know in the last hours, Valencia CF has shown interest in Lucas Martínez Quarta. The Argentine defender who currently plays for Fiorentina is available on the market and his arrival could be closed for a small financial amount. That is why the club is very interested in signing him for this summer.
Its possible incorporation would relegate Diakhaby to a secondary role in Valencia CF, being the last central defender in Baraja’s rotation. Now all that remains is to wait and see how his future is resolved, which looks further and further away from the Santander League. And it is that, despite the fact that his level in recent years has not been up to par, he continues to enjoy a great poster in championships such as the Premier League or Ligue 1.
