Alcacer close to Valencia renewal.

Valencia CF attacker Paco Alcacer is close to signing a new contract, which will quell speculation of his departure from Mestalla.

The 21-year-old was linked to host of clubs including the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool. But Alcacer will soon pen down a new contract which will run until 2020, thus thwarting his potential suitors. This will also see a  €80m release clause inserted in the 5 cap Spain International’s contact.

Talking to Canal + before Valencia’s La Liga encounter against Sevilla (which they won 3-1), Los Che’s Director of Football Francisco Rufete said,”There are little things, and it seems that Paco Alcácer will be a Valencia player for the next five years, until 2020. He will be with us for the next five years.”

The Mestalla youth product has been in prolific goal scoring form this season, having netted 8 goals across all competitions. He was also instrumental in Valencia’s Europa League campaign last season, where they reached the semi-finals. Alcacer grabbed as many as 7 goals, which included a hat trick against FC Basel, which helped his side overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit.

The former Spain U-21 International’s current contract expires next season, with Valencia keen to tie down the 21-year-old to a new contract. Alcacer himself in the past has cleared his intentions to stay beyond the contract.

“Both parties have the same desire. I am concentrating on playing.

“Valencia wan’t to [extend the deal] and so do I and my family”

“But there is no rush and I am very clear in my mind.”

Having represented Spain at all youth levels from U-16 to U-21’s, the former Getafe loanee made his senior Spain debut in September last year. He has represented Spain on 5 occasions since, scoring 3 goals.
