Transfer Focus: Calibre of clubs interested in Saiz indicates he’s worth more than the reported fee

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, A trio of La Liga clubs are interested in signing Samu Saiz this summer.

The Spaniard spent the second half of last season on loan at Getafe, and despite not being overly impressive a selection of clubs are interested in his services.

Making a mistake

The three clubs that are interested in the midfielder are Valencia, Getafe and Alaves. The fact that sides of this calibre see value in signing Saiz surely must show Marcelo Bielsa that he is making a mistake in letting him go.

Getafe will be playing in the Europa League next year, while Alaves were contenders for European football for a large portion of the season. Valencia’s history speaks for itself as they are undoubtedly one of Spain’s biggest clubs.

For these three teams to want Saiz in their ranks surely shows that he is one of the most talented players in the Championship, and if Leeds are to let him leave for a fee that doesn’t reflect his true value.

Shame

It really is a shame how the midfielder’s Elland Road career has panned out. After an electric first season at the club, he quickly became unsettled and there seems to be no way of repairing the damage that has already been done.

Reports have stated that Saiz is set to be the subject of a £3m bid from Valencia. A fee that doesn’t come anywhere close to reflecting his true value. The 28-year-old is one of the most talented players to play in the Championship, and Leeds will be disappointed that they haven’t been able to make the most of having such a fantastic player in their ranks.

If Saiz hadn’t had these personal issues in the UK then the Whites surely could have commanded a much higher fee when the time came to sell him, but as it stands they will have to watch as he leaves for a minimal amount.
