According to local Spanish media negotiations between Valencia and Celta Vigo for the signature of Maxi Gomez have broken down over the low valuation of Santi Mina who has been touted as part of a swap plus cash deal.
The swap would see Mina return to the club where he began his career. The Spaniard signed for Valencia from Celta for 10 million euros in 2015 and would be a very popular addition to the squad with supporters
Spanish Journalist Alex Domínguez said “Clarification on the current situation: the negotiations between Valencia CF and Celta Vigo are currently broken because the club has a very low valuation of Santi Mina. Valencia thinks the footballer is worth a lot more. The two clubs, for the time being, immovable in their positions.”
West Ham made a £25m for the striker which as of yesterday had not been accepted but it is said his representatives would want assurances that he would not be cover for Marko Arnautovic. They may still be a few twists and turns in this story.
