Valencia ask Barcelona for Nico González, ‘confident in convincing him’ - report

Valencia have asked Barcelona for midfielder Nico González and are confident in convincing the player to join the La Liga club on loan this season, according to a report from Relevo’s Matteo Moretto.

El Valencia ha preguntado por Nico y confía en convencerle.

El planteamiento del Barça es mantenerle, pero con Jorge Mendes no se puede descartar un cambio de planes.

Gattuso le quiere: el jugador tendría protagonismo y minutos.

Nico se lo piensa.

The 20-year-old is in Xavi Hernández’s plans for the time being but a loan move to a club where he’ll get minutes at a high level is not viewed as a bad thing by the club and the coaching staff, and this report says new Valencia manager Gennaro Gattuso has promised Nico a “protagonist” role in his midfield.
