Valencia want Zenit’s Neto

Valencia are targeting Zenit St Petersburg defender Luis Neto but face competition from Galatasaray, say reports in Spain.

The Portuguese international’s contract at Zenit expires in 2019 and despite the Russian giants attempting to renew his deal, negotiations have stalled.

Plaza Deportiva report this impasse has alerted the attention of both Los Che and Galatasaray, who wish to sign the 29-year-old.

Neto partnered Valencia central defender Ezequiel Garay for two seasons in Russia and Marcelino Garcia Toral, the new Coach at the Mestalla, is reportedly a fan.

This follows up reports in O Jogo which state the former Siena defender could be on the move this summer.
