ANDl Valencia wants defender Omar Alderete be one of the first reinforcements of the defense for the 2021-22 season, although the feature has enough edges as for assume that it will not be imminent. The main thing is that it is a name that the coach agrees on, José Bordalás, and the technical secretary, Miguel Angel Corona, and that -as they have extracted from the conversations with his agent- would enter the economic parameters that Peter Lim has imposed: transfers and free players or at zero cost.
The Paraguayan central, which is currently playing the Copa América in Brazil, knows the interest of the Mestalla club and wants to play in the ValenciaBut that’s where the biggest stumbling block comes in. The 24-year-old soccer player Belongs to Hertha from Berlin and has contract until 2025, after the German club signed him from the Basel the last day of the transfer market last season.
Alderete has not been an undisputed starter in his first season at the German club, where the Belgian international Boyata and Niklas Stark they had the position almost assured, but yes has played enough to get attention from other clubs like Valencia. Including the three games he played before his move to Hertha, Omar Alderete, has played 23 games this season (1,839 minutes) in a difficult season for the German club that achieved mathematical salvation a few days to go.
One of the Valencia’s needs this season is to reinforce the central position, position in which, after departure from Mangala, Bordalás has Paulista, Guillamón and Diakhaby, for which offers are expected. Alderete, 1.88 meters tall, it would reinforce the position and the passing game in the team’s own area. But Valencia’s negotiating capacity is scarcea by trying to get the player at the lowest possible cost. Furthermore, lhe Copa América dispute could delay the player’s arrival -Play the quarterfinals against Peru this Friday- if the agreement between clubs is finalized. Hertha already waited last year until October 5 to get him out of Basel.
