Helder Postiga poised for Valencia

Valencia are to sign Helder Postiga from Real Zaragoza after the two clubs agreed a deal worth a reported €3 million plus €500,000 extra if the Portugal international scores at least 15 goals next season.

Helder Postiga joined Real Zaragoza from Sporting in 2011.

The deal was confirmed by Zaragoza’s director general Jesus Garcia Pitarch, who said it would be completed once the player and his soon to be former club sorted out a few last remaining details.

“There is an agreement for Postiga with Valencia,” Garcia Pitarch told Superdeporte. “The only thing we are talking about now is a matter between Zaragoza and Helder."

Postiga, who turned 31 recently, scored 14 goals in 37 Primera Division games, even as Zaragoza struggled unsuccessfully against relegation last term, and was also a reported target for Sevilla.

He has agreed a two-year deal with an option for a further season, and will now be given the stiff task of replacing former Los Che captain and fans’ favourite Roberto Soldado, who on Monday completed a €30 million move to Tottenham.

The Mestalla side are also keen to sign another striker before the current transfer window shuts, as last season’s back-up Nelson Haedo Valdez departure means coach Miroslav Djukic has just one senior centre-forward - Spanish Under-20 international Paco Alcacer - and he is currently sidelined through injury.

Reported interest from sporting director Braulio Vazquez in Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud appears to have cooled, and it did always seem unlikely that the €400 million in debt club would stretch to the wages and fee required to tempt the France international away from the Emirates.

The latest more affordable names in the frame, say Superdeporte, are Belgium international Ilombe Mboyo of Gent and Imoh Ezekiel of Nigeria and Standard Liege.

Djukic did not talk about Postiga or other potential targets after Tuesday night’s 1-0 International Champions Cup win over Everton at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium. The newly installed coach did however say that Valencia’s creditable performance at the tournament - where they also beat Inter Milan 4-0 - showed his side were on track for the new season.

“Valencia are starting to look more like what we want, we have had a good tour and the team competed well in the three games,” Djukic said.

“We did some things well, there are others we need to correct. There is a lot of ambition in the group, people want to improve each day and understand what we want. We are at a big club that needs to win games, win trophies and we are very happy.”
