Cardiff City’s Gary Medel might leave the Welsh club this summer after they suffered relegation from the Premier League, with a trio of clubs waiting to pounce.

Cardiff paid a club record transfer fee of £11m to Sevilla for the combative midfielder last summer.

A trio of Besiktas, Valencia and Malaga have already registered their interest in signing the defensive midfielder, according to Tutto Mercato.

It is believed that Medel has a release clause in his contract which has been triggered by the club’s relegation to the Championship.


Cardiff would ideally like to keep Medel to boost their chances for promotion next season but might have to sell the Chilean to the highest bidder, if the midfielder is opposed to plying his trade in the second tier of English football.

With 59 caps for Chile on the international stage, Medel won’t be short of buyers if he decides to leave the Welsh club this summer.

The Chilean is the captain of his national team and will lead his side in this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
