Valencia manager Marcelino has reaffirmed that the Spanish club will be taking up their option to redeem Geoffrey Kondogbia but conceded he is unsure as to what Inter will be doing with regard to keeping a hold of Joao Cancelo.

“Inter has until May 31 to exercise their purchase option for Joao Cancelo and this is also the case for us with Geoffrey Kondogbia. They [Inter] have not decided what they will do but we will make it [redeeming Kondogbia] official.”

Marcelino did not however state when Valencia will activate their option but with only eight days until d-day, an official announcement can only be around the corner.

Both Cancelo & Kondogbia have excelled at their respective loan clubs this season. Inter’s chances of keeping Cancelo seemed nothing more than a pipeline dream over a week ago but with Champions League qualification in the bag, Inter’s chances of keeping the Portuguese have certainly increased. Valencia meanwhile have long made it clear that they will pay the €25 million fee that will allow the Frenchman to keep playing his football at the Mestalla.
