Javi Guerra remains a top target for Man Utd and Newcastle

Manchester United and Newcastle could snap a highly-rated LaLiga midfielder with a €100m release clause for as little as €35m, while Liverpool’s interest in a flying Bundesliga winger has been confirmed as ‘concrete’ – all in Friday’s Euro Paper Talk.


Manchester United and Newcastle have seemingly been given a lift in their bid to sign a talented Valencia midfielder Javi Guerra in 2024.

The LaLiga outfit have angered their own fans in recent times by offloading the likes of Goncalo Guedes and Carlos Soler, and it appears that they are now ready to cash in on Guerra next.

The 20-year-old is the latest player to emerge from their Paterna academy and it’s feared that any sale would spark outrage.

Guerra has earned a regular starting spot this season, excelling with his performances – so much so that Man Utd and Newcastle are showing significant interest.

The young midfielder, who has also been linked with Juventus, does have a €100m release clause attached to his contract that runs until 2027.

However, it was recently revealed that his former club Villarreal have a 30% sell-on clause, meaning any deal could be worth millions to the Yellow Submarine.

Guerra available for cut-price fee

To make matters worse for Los Che fans is the fact that he could now be available for as little as €35-40m instead.

That’s according to tuttomercatoweb, with Guerra set to attract plenty of suitors at that sort of price tag.

Indeed, the youngster is regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in Spanish football, so potentially losing him to the Premier League would not came as a blow to Valencia but to LaLiga as a whole.
