Praise for Cesc and Alexis

Whilst explaining that he was: “a little disconnected” from the transfer market speculations at the moment, he expressed his conviction that Cesc Fabregas: “is excited about coming back here and I’d like that. His way of playing would mean he’d have no problems adapting and he’d bring a lot of quality”.

Valdés is also familiar with Chile international Alexis Sánchez: “he surprised me at last year’s World Cup. He’s very good, very fast and his main virtue is his ability to beat a man. He is undoubtedly a really valid option and a very good striker”.

Support for Bojan and Messi
