The 22-year-old striker had an unprecedented first half of the season in the kit of the Rotterdam club and has attracted the attention of top European clubs. Various international media outlets are speculating about Giménez’s future, with some claiming that he could be sold for up to €100m.
However, Dutch journalist Valentijn Driessen, who was present at the premiere of Feyenoord’sdocumentary about Giménez, does not think that the attacker will leave his side anytime soon. “I can’t imagine him leaving in the winter after producing such a documentary,” said De Telegraaf’s football chief in a video item from the newspaper.
“But it remains professional football. If Real Madrid or Atlético Madrid come, he is gone. I think Feyenoord should be very happy with €30 to €35,” Driessen then says about a future transfer of Giménez, who, according to the FootballTransfers algorithm, currently has an Estimated Transfer Value (ETV) of €32.3m.
Gimenez a wanted man
It is thought that Giménez could be sold for €35m, but Mikos Gouka of Algemeen Dagblad expects that Feyenoord will only start thinking about the departure of the striker with offers of €40m.
“That would be a huge amount that Feyenoord has never received,” Gouka said on Thursday in the newspaper’s Football Podcast. The transfer record of the Rotterdam team is now shared by Orkun Kökçü and Luis Sinisterra.
The Feyenoord stars were both sold for a guaranteed amount of €25m to Benfica (summer 2023) and Leeds United (summer 2022), respectively. These transfer fees can rise to €30m through bonuses.
