Cabral plays down Valencia rumours

Celta Vigo defender Gustavo Cabral has distanced himself from reports he is to join Valencia for the 2016-17 season.

The Argentine central defender, 30, was linked with a move to Mestalla this week after talks over a new deal at Balaidos broke down, with his current agreement expiring on June 20.

Nonetheless, Cabral maintains rumours of a move to Valencia are premature and he is solely concentrating on the remainder of the season with the Galicians.

“I’ve not heard anything and neither has my representative, but it is logical rumours will emerge. There was also talk of Lazio but in the end nothing happened,” he told reporters.

“Right now I’m just thinking of Celta, as I’ve always said, and doing things right game-by-game, although the issue over my contract has come to a full stop and we hope to speak later.

“It’s obvious that as a professional I want to have things settled as soon as possible, more so because I have a family, and it’s important for a player to have things right in his head.”
