Zigic must drop pay demands for Valencia move

Valencia are urging Racing Santander to drop their asking price for striker Nikola Zigic.

Los Che have already agreed personal terms with Zigic's agent over a five-year contract worth £4.5 million. Valencia were originally willing to meet Racing's £10 million asking price, but after having to up their contract offer in competition with Manchester City have requested Racing shave at least £1 million off their valuation.

For their part, Racing will talk with Zigic today and urge him to drop his personal demands - or risk staying in Santander on his present £350,000-a-year deal.
