Manchester United are interested in signing Valencia midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, reports claim. The Spanish club want a complete overhaul in the upcoming transfer window with several first-team players expected to leave the Mestalla Stadium.
Valencia completed their La Liga campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Sevilla on Sunday evening.
And having finished in ninth position with 53 points – they will NOT compete in European competition next season.
No Champions League or Europa League football coupled with the financial impact of the coronavirus could lead to a radical change at Valencia.
Spanish newspaper Marca claim that owner Peter Lim and club president Anil Murthy are desperate to slash their running costs and they are prepared to start from scratch.

The pair are open to selling at least 12 first-team players with Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin and Rodrigo Moreno all up for grabs.
27-year-old Geoffrey Kondogbia is also available and that’s led to interest from the Premier League.
French publication FootMercato claim Manchester United and Tottenham are showing interest in the box-to-box midfielder.
It’s thought that Kondogbia ‘dreams’ of playing in the English top-flight having already plied his trade in France, Spain and Italy.

Kondogbia has just under two years remaining on his £115,000-per-week contract, which expires in June 2022.
Kondogbia, who played for France five times before switching his allegiance to the Central African Republic, could be available for around £20million.
His agent, Meissa N’diaye, represents several Premier League stars including Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy, Chelsea centre-forward Michy Batshuayi and Wolves centre-back Willy Boly.
