The Brazil born 29-year-old has been at Valencia since 2014 and has scored 59 goals in 220 appearances. He at various times has been linked with moves to some of Europe’s biggest clubs. Now, Valencia have well documented financial issues and the Rodrigo sale would add to the already completed sales of Ezequiel Garay, Francis Coquelin, Dani Parejo, and Ferran Torres.

Leeds and Valencia have agreed a fee of 30 + 10
- Don’t expect 15-20 goals. But expect lot of “goal points”. “Involved” in many goals (@ViaplayVeland - our Spain - expert)
I always rated this player. Bielsa could be good for him@LUFC https://t.co/GGFLngJFSn
The fee seems high for a 29-year-old, especially one who had a serious knee injury last year, but there is no doubting his quality. The main thing for me is “if Marcelo Bielsa wants him, then I want him”.
El jugador tenía muchas dudas pero ha sido el propio Marcelo Bielsa el que le ha convencido en estos últimos días. El argentino ha sido la clave.— Héctor Gómez (@Generaldepie_) August 25, 2020
