Real Valladolid Sporting director Miguel Ángel Gómez is highly optimistic Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu will remain with the club beyond this season.
The 21 year old player has been on the radar of several European clubs such as Manchester United, Everton, Real Madrid, and Valencia.
He’s one of the most consistent players for the Spanish la Liga side, making 28 appearances, scoring one goal, and providing one assist so far this term.
His £10.4m buyout clause makes it easier for clubs to pounce on him with his contract set to run out in 2021.
“He [Salisu] is a player who has drawn a lot of attention, that his projection is tremendous, but today there is no news to comment around him,” Gomez told Radio Valladolid.
“There are clubs of course that have asked about Salisu, it would be cheating, it is normal at this time of the season and even before, that has happened, but at the moment more things have not happened, but we will see.
“We want that he stays and we want him to extend his contract, but we will also have to see the situations in which they arise.”
Real Valladolid were 15th on the league table before the football activities were halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.
