Crystal Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita is interested in the idea of returning to former club Valencia this summer, according to La Razon.
While Eagles fans up and down the land would have been braced for another bout of speculation surrounding the future of talisman and gossip column regular Wilfred Zaha, they might not have considered the idea that one of the Premier League’s most underrated goalkeepers could be heading out of Selhurst Park.
With Guaita entering the final 12 months of his contract, the Londoners could be powerless to prevent the 33-year-old departing for a fraction of his market value.
La Razon points out that the Valencia-born ‘keeper is a target for the club he represented with pride between 2008 and 2014. What’s more, Guaita is open-minded about the prospect of a second spell at his hometown outfit.
It is not known how much Crystal Palace would demand for a man who has become a fan favourite since his move from Malaga two years ago.
But, considering Guaita’s advancing age and his expiring contract, he will cost a damn sight less than some of Valencia’s other goalkeeping targets, including Alaves ace Fernando Pacheco and Levante glovesman Aitor Fernandez.
