In order not to pay a bonus of 5 M € to PSG, Valencia puts Guedes aside


If Gonçalo Guedes plays one more game with Valencia this season, the Spanish club will have to pay 5 million euros to PSG who sold him

The passage of Gonçalo Guedes at PSG, 13 games played between January and August 2017, will not leave an unforgettable memory.

But the Parisian club, which had bought it for 30 million euros from Benfica, then negotiated rather well by realizing a capital gain since it then sold it definitively for 40 million to Valencia in 2018. A transfer accompanied by 10 M bonus €.

PSG were therefore likely to receive an additional €5m this season if the Portuguese striker played a certain number of games.

But his counter should stop at 35 games, 11 goals and 6 assists.

If Gonçalo Guedes indeed plays one more match with Valencia

(for at least 45 minutes),

the Spanish club will have to pay this bonus to PSG.

Valencia has therefore chosen to do without the Portuguese for the end of the season.

He had already started the last two La Liga games on the bench (24 and 27 minutes played).

Which should still be the case against Espanyol and Celta Vigo.

“We will respect the decision by always looking for the best for the club”

In a press conference, José Bordalas, the coach of Valencia, however tried to drown the fish: "Guedes received a blow which has bothered him for several days and we decided that he would not train to see if it will be in condition tomorrow, ”he first tried to explain.

Before giving the real reasons under the insistence of Spanish journalists.

“The club spoke with me, with the player and with his agent, he acknowledged.

If the club has an agreement with the player, we will respect the decision by always seeking the best for the club.


Valencia 10th in the championship has nothing to play for.

He cannot mathematically aim for better than 9th place.

By doing without his top scorer, he will at least make some small savings.
