No one expected it! The champion wants Luis Muriel! Come back to Spain! They probe his signing after his good season in Italy.
Few South American players can claim to have a successful resume as varied and globetrotting as he is, but, to tell the truth, his performance during these years in the old continent has been quite positive , if not in goals (which also), at least in contribution offensive. And that is precisely what attracts Valencia, reigning champion of the Copa de Rey, Luis Muriel . The Levante team has also suffered in the Champions League , where the Celades team fell against the Colombian team, Atalanta , and on the whole of the tie by eight goals to four.
Part of the blame for this huge offensive stream of those from Bergamo lies with the coffee grower , who together with his compatriot Duvan Zapata and Josep Ilicic , are achieving surprising records for goal so far this season, in addition to having classified the Italian team, comfortably, to the quarterfinals of the maximum continental competition in Europe .
All in all, the South American, despite playing and contributing, is not having all the continuity in his game that he would like, so the possibility of returning to Spain, to LaLiga , to one of the greats like Valencia, will not displeases . Especially if you are guaranteed in the capital of Turia that you will have a leading role in the next campaign. Of course, nobody in the transalpine country can complain about their performance and their numbers, which are frankly good (one more thing they like in Valencia)
And is that the tip has achieved 14 goals in 28 games but in only 1,200 deputies minutes , which speaks clearly how much the former player of Sevilla is helping the team. For its part, the whole of Celades , surprised by the level of this Atalanta, also looked at Zapata, but it has been foreseen as a more complicated operation and that would lead to a much higher outlay, hence the exclusive interest in Muriel. In addition, it is more convenient for them to prop up their attack and the deficiencies of Kevin Gameiro or the possible departure of Rodrigo with a footballer with Muriel’s mobility , who could be ché for around 15 million euros.
