- The midfielder gives his OK to extend at least one year, the condition that Barça put on him
Nico González (20 years old) is close to closing his loan to Valencia for one season. As KG explained yesterday, the media asked Xavi Hernández yesterday to allow him to go out in search of a leading role that he saw as complicated at Barça. The coach agreed and the sports area too, but one condition was put on him: that he extend his contract, which ends in 2024, before going to Valencia, the club he wants to go to.
The player is for the job of accepting this renewal proposal because his priority is to leave as soon as possible and he also likes the idea of expanding his relationship with Barça.
Yesterday he already spoke with Gennaro Gattuso, Valencia coach, to speak to him about the role that he would have reserved for him. The Italian coach guaranteed him a lot of prominences and Jorge Mendes, agent of the Galician media, was in charge of putting the clubs in agreement. The assignment would be for one year and Valencia would pay his record.
