Despite growing curiosity in the signature of the Ferran Torres, Valencia’s defender Jose Luis Gaya shared his intention to continue lining up alongside with team mate.
Gaya acknowledges that he can’t talk about his team-mate but he wants to see him in the Mestalla for a time. “I was where he was, I’m not in his mind, but I hope he’s staying with us,” the full-back announced to Movistar.
Torres has experienced a good 2019-20 season, scoring six goals in 35 games before the coronavirus epidemic put on hold during the Liga season. But his existence at Valencia remains unclear beyond the season.
Previously, the defender for Spain was a choice for Real Madrid, but he refused in favour of trying to improve his skills in Valencia. “Yes, interest was there, but I was too young and decided to stay there,” he revealed.
Following their controversial Champions League game against Atalanta at the beginning of the epidemic, Gaya was one of the Valencia players to test positive for Covid-19. And after completing a full recovery, he claims that the Spanish authorities should avoid the example established in France and complete La Liga’s remaining rounds in 2019–20.
