Javi Gracia is very close to becoming Valencia's new coach. As MD has learned, the former Watford coach is at the Túria captain to definitively close his incorporation.

The La Rioja coach has eaten with the managers of the Valencian team and in the next few hours he could be introduced as the new Valencia coach. In fact, this Monday afternoon the official announcement and its first press conference could take place.

This weekend, Peter Lim gave the green light to the incorporation of the Navarrese coach, which indicates that he will sign for the next two seasons.

Gracia was removed from Watford on September 7 due to poor results and despite having managed to lead the modest English team to the FA Cup final last season. Since then the Navarrese has not led any team.

This will be Gracia's third adventure in LaLiga after passing through Osasuna and Málaga.
