Halilovic Valencia talks confirmed

Alen Halilovic’s father has confirmed talks between Barcelona and Valencia but insists nothing is signed. ‘I don’t know what will happen…’

Halilovic has been linked with Mestalla after a year at Sporting Gijon and his father, Sejad, revealed the talks but explained there isn’t a resolution yet.

“It’s true there are negotiations [with Valencia] but nothing has been finalised yet,” he said, AS reports.

“He should be happy to have played in such a strong League at 19. He played 36 games for Sporting, 25 from the first minute. Few at his age have done that. It’s hard to play against mainly defence-orientated teams.

“[Alen] wants to go back to Barca but the club believes it’d be good to play another year elsewhere and get more games. It’s hard to find a club serious about signing for a year and developing a player for another club, even for Barca. I don’t know what will happen.”
