Rami hints at Valencia exit

The defender continues to be linked with the Mestalla exit door but revealed his current club are determined to retain his services

Adil Rami has admitted to having "desires elsewhere" after hinting at leaving Valencia once again this summer.

The France international has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks and has enhanced his reputation in recent times with his stellar displays for los Che.

But the cash-strapped club remain determined to keep hold of one of their prized assets and though Rami revealed the specific release clause in his contract, the 27-year-old remains unsure whether he will still be at Mestalla or not come the start of next season.

"I have learned a lot in Valencia and Spain. I am here today but that does not mean to say that I do not have desires elsewhere. I read that Valencia pushed me towards the exit, this is totally wrong. I broke my contract with my agent in February,” he told RMC.

“I had a good laugh because on Tuesday I had a meeting with Valencia directors and it is impossible for them to let me go. I have a clause between 10 and 12 million euros so we will see what is best for me moving forward.”

Rami joined Valencia in January 2011 and after spending the remainder of the 2011/12 season on loan at Lille he has become a star performer over the last two seasons, making 74 appearances in the process.

His current deal runs until June 2016.
