Barcelona and Valencia are locked in negotiations about a number of potential deals. According to Superdeporte, Los Che are interested in midfielders Denis Suarez and Rafinha. Both players are available this summer with Barça keen to bring in money for their squad players.

According to the report, Valencia are trying to involve the duo in a deal for goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, which would see Neto move in the other direction to Camp Nou. Talks are advanced. 

It's unknown how everything would work, but it would not be the first time the two clubs have worked on a deal which has a chain effect -- something similar happened with Andre Gomes three summers ago. 

The arrival of the Portuguese midfielder led Martin Montoya to Valencia. And, one month later, Paco Alcacer joined Barça from Valencia in a deal which saw Munir go the other way on loan. 

Beyond the possibility of Cillessen ending up at Valencia, the Barça player closest to the Mestalla is Denis Suarez, who coach Marcelino wants to be reunited with. They worked well together at Villarreal. 

Denis is convinced, following a disappointing, injury-hit loan spell at Arsenal, a move to Valencia will be best for his career as he looks to play regularly again.
