Reports suggest France international defender Adil Rami has been put up for sale by Spanish club Valencia after a bust up with coach Miroslav Djukic.
If reports in Spain are to be believed, a host of European clubs are said to be interested in signing the Frenchman.
The clubs being linked to the defender are Arsenal, Manchester City and Barcelona. While Arsenal have recently looked into signing Rami - City and more especially Barcelona have previously been linked with a potential move for the Frenchman as they tried to sign him during the previous transfer window.
The transfer fell through as Rami expressed uncertainty in getting enough game-time with Barcelona should he have moved. He wanted to carry on playing for Valencia given that it was a World Cup year and only regular starters will be considered for places in the French national team.
Rami recently spoke to radio CadenaSer on Tuesday evening elaborating on his strained relationship with coach Miroslav Djukic and his Valencia teammates: “He is the captain of the ship, but we will see where we are at the end of the season.
"My relationship with him is not good. I don’t think he tells you things to your face. He told me that I could be one of the best central defenders in Europe and he doesn’t show it."
The attitude shown by the coach seemed to be reflected in the team itself as he made similar comments: “We have lost people such as (David) Abelda, (Roberto) Soldado and Tino (Costa) and now in the dressing room there are only Pelotas (teacher’s pets)."
According to Super Deporte, the result of Rami’s outburst has seen the player not only receive a fine but also being put on the club’s transfer list as well.
It now seems that Rami will eventually make the move to one of Europe’s big boys; most likely in La Liga or the English Premier League.
