Real Valladolid Hopeful Mohammed Salisu Stays Amid Strong Interest From Premier League
Sporting director for Real Valladolid, Angel Gomez is hopeful Mohammed Salisu will remain with the club despite strong interest from top European clubs.
The Ghana defender has been linked to Manchester United, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
Salisu's contract expires in 2022 with just a release clause of £10.4 million.
However, Gomez is hopeful Salisu will stay at Estadio Jose Zorrilla.
"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."
Salisu has played 27 times in La Liga this season with the sixth-highest average of clearances in the top-flight (5.0).
He has also registered one goal and assist this term, his first-ever for the Castile and Leon-based outfit.
Valladolid were in 15th spot on the log before the coronavirus pandemic halted football activities.
There is however hope for a restart in June with players returning to training after lockdown rules were relaxed by the Spanish government.
