Rubin Kazan forward Chori Dominguez is set to decide on his future in the coming days with Valencia set to up their salary offer in a renewed bid to land the Argentinian forward.
It is reported that the Russian champions have asked the 28-year-old to remain at the club beyond his December contract expiry date if they manage to secure a place in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League by defeating Inter at the San Siro next week.
Dominguez is also understood to be a target for Italian sides Juventus and Roma but despite the likelihood of a greater financial package at either of these sides, he is believed to favour a move to Spain as it best resembles life in Argentina. The player himself remains coy on the issue of a move to Spain.
"On this subject there is little I can say," Dominguez was quoted as saying by Super Deporte, after arriving in Barcelona with Rubin, where they are preparing for their Champions League tie with Inter.
Despite initial suggestions that salary expectations of the player were the main obstacle in tying up a deal, it is now believed the demands of the player and his agent in relation to a signing-on fee are the only stumbling block with Los Che reportedly willing to meet his wage demands.
