The agent of a target for Arsenal and Barcelona on his client’s future

The representative for Iván Fresneda has commented on the interest his client has received, claiming that more than 30 clubs are interested in him. The Spaniard has impressed despite only playing in the league 10 times this season.

Luis Bardaji stated the following about the 18-year-old defender:

“About thirty teams have expressed interest. But the truth is that he hasn’t really caught anyone’s attention in Spanish football, but there has been interest in Germany, France, and England. Some did so because of a particular need in this market, while others did so because they saw the future, but times are what they are. Real Valladolid will keep Fresneda until the end of the season. We want him to be grounded, and he wouldn’t have the continuity he needs now with other teams.

Added he:

“We already informed Real Valladolid over the weekend that there would not be an offer and that he would not leave in the winter market. It’s not a bad situation for us—in fact, quite the opposite is true. Ivan is happy to play for Real Valladolid and to be coached by Pacheta, who has allowed him to enjoy his current level of success. We would like it to be a historic sale for the club if he ever leaves.
