The pearl of the 21-year-old Elche is the objective of Rome, which sees in it a player capable of directing the operations of a Champions team from the center of the field. Villar, international U21 with Spain, is a midfielder of great management, with leadership skills to carry the weight of the team and a very high quality quota. It would not be strange to see him at the next Tokyo Olympics. “We’re going to sign a young midfielder, someone who can be the future of this team.” Gianluca Petrachi, sports director of Rome, yesterday set his team’s goals in the market before the duel against Juventus. The giallorosso club wants to maintain its commitment to youth and quality. In that sense, as AS has learned, the managers of the capital entity have set their sights on Gonzalo Villar. The interest is strong. Valencia has an option.Its termination clause is now 25 million euros and 80% of its economic rights belong to Valencia. Although the player is not assigned in Elche. It is owned by the Illicitano club until June 2021. Valencia also has a right of first refusal on the Murcia midfielder, in the event that a third team wants to take it, as is the case. Villar is being one of the great sensations of Second Division under Pacheta. A player already with hierarchy in the team’s engine room despite his youth.Villar is also an adaptable player. In Elche he has been able to form in the double pivot, his most usual position, or to advance his position somewhat to form in a 4-2-3-1 closer to the tip. With Paulo Fonseca, Rome has been moving precisely more in that last drawing, which would fit perfectly with the characteristics of Murcian talent.
