Valencia-Lim deal close says Salvo

Valencia President Amadeo Salvo says the sale of the club to Singapore businessman Peter Lim could be completed within a matter of days.

An agreement was provisionally announced on August 14 yet negotiations between Lim’s company Meriton Holdings and Bankia, Valencia’s main creditor, have since hit several snags.

However, Salvo told AS that the deal has never been in doubt and any problems have been down to the bank.

“The sale has never broken down and the feelings are as positive as they were before last weekend. There will be an agreement and we could have one in a few days,” he claimed.

“The differences with Bankia were those we had last August and now there are additional things that we have already spoken about in May. The rest are just minor issues and differences of opinion.

“It doesn’t make sense everything that is happening. More proof of Peter Lim’s intention to buy Valencia is impossible.

“He has brought players to the club such as Rodrigo and Andre Gomes, helped in managing to acquire someone like Alvaro Negredo, and committed to buying the Valencia Foundation’s shares, for which he has given personal guarantees.

“Is that not enough to convince people he wants to buy Valencia? It’s common sense,” he insisted.
