Senna could leave Villarreal in pay row

August 22, 2008

The agent of Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna has told the Spanish club to offer his client more money or risk losing him to Fenerbahce.

The 32-year-old Spain international is wanted by the Turkish club's new coach Luis Aragones, who was with Senna in the Spain set-up which won Euro 2008 in June.

Brazilian-born Senna has admitted he would be tempted by a move to join his former international coach, but also revealed that any move also depends on Villarreal.

Now his agent, Eli Coimbra, has revealed Senna will only stay in Spain if Villarreal can at least match the cash offered by Fener, a sum believed to be in the region of 2.5million euros a season.

'Marcos wants to stay, but he wants to feel valued,' Coimbra told Spanish newspaper Marca. 'He has two years left, but for him it would be an important step if Villarreal were to offer him a new deal.

'Fenerbahce's offer is worth a lot of money, many millions. They want to build a strong side, and Aragones knows what Marcos is capable of.

'We've spoken to Villarreal and I've made them understand that we're talking about a special case, because he's an important player who's being chased by a team with a lot of money.

'Renewing his contract to better it would make him calm.'
