Valencia is looking to reinforce its defense for the next season, and the Portuguese center-back from Union Berlin is on Rubén Baraja’s wish list. The former Porto player arrived in Berlin last summer, and despite his good performances in the Champions League, the German side’s season has not been easy.
After achieving the historic feat of qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in their history last season, including making his debut at the Bernabéu in their first match in the competition, the situation is very different this season. They are last in their Champions League group and bottom of the Bundesliga.
The team’s poor situation is said to have led Diogo Leite to reconsider his decision to move to Berlin, and he is now looking for a way out of the club. Valencia is a good option for the center-back, who could have moved to Mestalla in 2020 when he was still playing for Porto.
