I've a theory. Meriton (Mendes' and Lim's shady company) bought Cancelo, Gomes and Rodrigo and placed them in Valencia with a view on making good profit on them. Cancelo and Gomes were sold in timely fashion while Rodrigo were supposed to be sold this summer. Club decline offer from Napoli. Now Lim and Mendes are angry, they want return on their investment while Alemany does what he thinks is best for the club.
