In order to balance the books, Valencia have reportedly put up all of their players for sale this summer. An exodus could be on the cards.

A report has claimed Valencia could attempt solving their financial crisis by selling as many players as they can this summer.

La Liga sides were really affected by the coronavirus crisis and Los Murcelagos are reported to be one of the most badly hit sides.

The club’s recent activity could well hint there’s a truth to this report.

 Valencia have already sold winger Ferran Torres who joined Manchester City last week.

And just today, the duo of Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin joined rivals Villareal.

Marca claims that the Valencia new boss, Javi Gracia, was told as he was appointed at the end of July that any of his players could be sold.

However, the ex-Watford coach is keen not to sell captain Jose Luis Gaya. Regardless, the left-back is already attracting interest from Barcelona and could still end up being sold.

Per the report, Valencia are feeling effects of lost revenue having played the rest of the 2019/20 season behind closed doors due to coronavirus.

They also finished ninth in the Spanish top flight, meaning they have missed out on the riches of Champions League football for the first time in three years.

If the report is true as reported, only a matter of time before clubs come in full force to snap up some players on the ‘cheap’.
