QPR in final negotiations with Marseille for £7m Mathieu Valbuena deal [Mirror]
Reports in France last week were that MathieuValbuena was set for a shock move to Dinamo Moscow, after learning that new Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t count on the diminutive midfielder.
Despite Valbuena’s solid World Cup for France, Bielsa is apparently unconvinced due to ‘El Loco’s’ preference for more physical and athletic specimens.
But the Mirror claim that ‘Petit Velo’ is now set for a move to QPR, with boss Harry Redknapp in ‘final negotiations’ for Valbuena.
The fee being touted is £7m, which is a pretty fair sum for one of France’s best players at the 2014 World Cup, bearing in mind he is 29 and entering the latter stages of his career.
