Valencia set for Milan’s Paletta

Valencia are favourites to sign defender Gabriel Paletta from Milan on a cut-price deal, according to reports.

The Argentine defender is set to leave the San Siro this summer after being told his contract, which expires in June 2018, will not be renewed.

La Gazzetta dello Sport is the latest Italian news outlet to state the 31-year-old prefers a move to the Mestalla ahead of other offers in Italy as he seeks a fresh challenge.

The central defender is widely viewed as lacking discipline in Italy and last season matched an all-time Serie A record with five red cards.

Atalanta, Sassuolo and Torino had all been linked with the former Boca Juniors, Liverpool and Parma defender, who made 30 Serie A starts for the Rossoneri last season.
