Valencia moved closer to
securing the signature of Real Madrid's Argentine midfielder
Fernando Gago on Thursday after an outline deal was agreed
between the three parties.
"Fernando Gago arrives this evening at the Hotel Valencia
Palace after a pre-agreement was reached between Valencia, Real
Madrid and the player himself," the La Liga side said on their
official Twitter feed.
The 26-year-old Argentina international, who joined Real
from Boca Juniors in 2007, is surplus to requirements at the
Bernabeu and played last season on loan with AS Roma.
Spanish media reported Gago had agreed a four-year contract
and would move for a fee of some five million euros.
Valencia finished third in La Liga last season and qualified
for the Champions League group stages.
