The 2018-2019 season was one of the best in club history. Although it is true that he started very badly, with the elimination in the group stage of the Champions League and some terrible numbers in the first months of league competition, little by little he was straightening up. To be able to compete better from the first, the signings of Valencia 2019-2020 must raise the level of the template.
Because Valencia has already shown what it is capable of. Marcelino's painting not only managed to save the furniture, but they also signed a dream season finale. One step away from playing the final of the Europa League, qualifying for the next edition of the Champions, and defeating FC Barcelona in the final of the Copa del Rey, disputed in the Benito Villamarín stadium.
Possible signings of Valencia 2019-20
Therefore, the challenge that arises in the 2019-2020 season is huge. In all safety, the Valencian fans will demand that the team be competitive from the first league match. In addition, from the club also the priority goal is access to the round of knockout round of the Champions League. The club does not reach the KO stage in the European competition since 2013, when it fell to PSG in the round of 16.
On the other hand, Valencia must proudly defend the cup title obtained last season. And as a direct result of the achievement of the Cup title, you must also play the Spanish Super Cup, which this season will be played in a new format. In F formatinal Four during the month of January. To face all these challenges, the Valencia must close in the coming days the signings with which to face this exciting campaign. Let's see the movements in the whole market che!
Maxi Gómez (Celta de Vigo)
The Uruguayan center striker has signed 31 goals in the last two seasons. Incredible numbers for a 22 year old player belonging to a club like Celta. Therefore, the player has generated much interest in large clubs, such as Valencia. But, the English West Ham has also entered the bid. After having almost closed their march to English football, it finally seems that the hammers they have not reached an agreement with the Galician box. The English were willing to disburse the 50 million of their termination clause, but wanted to reformulate the payment method to be able to save a whole set of tax obligations.
For its part, the Celta has not accepted the formulas proposed by the English and has always referred to the payment of the Uruguayan clause. For all this, right now the negotiations are broken. Thus, in the absence of official confirmation, which will occur in the next few hours, the exchange of players between Valencia and Celta will be confirmed, by which Maxi Gómez will fly to Mestalla and Santi Mina will return to Balaídos. In addition, the Celta will enter 16 million euros and get the assignment for two seasons of Jorge Sáenz, central who has played in Tenerife during the last campaign.
Samu Castillejo (AC Milan)
The Andalusian end is on the exit ramp of San Siro. The milanista box must lighten its staff to be able to comply with the fair play financial. In addition, the player would look with good eyes to return to Spain. Milan have been excluded from European competitions, and Valencia awaits with the Champions as their main course. The figures that are being given from Italy speak of a possible transfer of 18 million of euros.
Rafael Leao (LOSC Lille)
The young Portuguese striker is one of the main alternatives to accompany Rodrigo Moreno in the double tip typical of the Marcelino system. Sources close to the valencianista club emphasize that the arrival of Leao would not be at odds with the signing of Maxi Gómez. But it is true that the arrival of the Uruguayan would allow to face this operation more calmly. The past season signed 8 goals and 2 assists in Ligue 1. It is a player who stands out for a marvelous top speed, key for a striker who must perform in the system of Marcelino. I would arrive at Mestalla for about 15 million euros.

The Portuguese central leaves from Mestalla to land in the Levant. Sign with the granotas until 2024, and leave in the coffers of Mestalla approximately between 4 and 6 million euros.
In the absence of official confirmation, it seems that the future of Santi Mina is already linked to Balaídos. According to information provided by Vigo and Valencian media, the imminent arrival of Maxi Gómez in Valencia is directly linked to the departure of Santi Mina, since it is an exchange that is fully accepted by all parties and included in the operation between clubs. The Galician player would be happy to return home, have more minutes and try to complete a great season with high-level teammates such as Iago Aspas or Denis Suárez.
There is a set of players who will abandon the Valencian discipline in the coming days. This is the case of Alex Blanco, who has just renewed with Valencia until 2021 and will leave on loan to Real Zaragoza until the end of the season. On the other hand, Facundo Roncaglia will have to return to Celta after the end of his cession in the ché set, operation derived from the March of Murillo to Barcelona during the winter market. The Colombian central is one step away from signing for Sampdoria.
As well players who have just finished their assignments will arrive on other computers. This is the case of Álvaro Medrán (Rayo Vallecano), Fran Villalba (Numancia) and Uros Racic (Tenerife). All of them with the future still very uncertain. Two very different cases are those of Aymen Abdenour and Nacho Gil. The club has given them extra vacation days so they can concentrate on finding a new team. They have no place in Mestalla.

The Andalusian striker was devoted to La Liga 123 in the discipline of a whole history, the Cadiz. Awarded for his hobby as the best player of the campaign, and establishing himself as the player in the silver category with the highest market value. Valencia signed it in the winter market, after a payment of 5.5 million euros, but kept it in the Cadiz until the end of the season. It's about a player with 21 years old, recently European U21 champion and that arrives at Mestalla after signing 8 goals and three assists with Cádiz last season.
This 24-year-old left-back Valencian played last season in Mallorca, where he was one of the architects for the Balearic group promoted to the highest category of Spanish football, after 5 seasons in the silver category and 1 in the Second B. Salva Ruiz is a product of the quarry of Paterna, and after different assignments to Tenerife and Granada, he left transferred to Mallorca. At first, Valencia did not execute the repurchase right included in its contract. But after his good performances in the final stretch of the season, the Valencia defender has decided not to renew with Mallorca and he arrives free to what has always been his home, Mestalla. Signature until 2023
The Dutch goalkeeper arrives at Mestalla to play the minutes he has not had in these last three seasons at FC Barcelona, where he has always been in the shadow of Ter Stegen.

He has signed up to 2023, has been transferred for 35 million euros and will have a termination clause of 80 million euros.
The Russian attacker will stay in the Mestalla. After a season with lights and shadows under Marcelino, Denis and the club have reached an agreement for Valencia to execute the purchase option of 5.5 million euros present in the assignment contract between Villarreal and the Valencia. In this way, Denis puts an end to a set of assignments that, together with the problems of injuries, have not allowed him to maintain an adequate rhythm of competition in recent seasons.
The Galician attacker arrives free from the Levant, where he has signed a wonderful season. It is true that if the signings of Maxi Gómez and Castillejo or Leao are finished, the attack front of Valencia will be fully occupied. It is also true that the club is likely to sell offensive players to lighten this part of the squad. In this context, Jason has already made clear his willingness not to leave on loan. And for the moment, all the club's statements in this regard are quite on par with the player's intentions.
