The Balance value looks over the top, one of the problems with Raul Albiol is that he isn't overtly tough and often lacks the physical nature needed against the pacy La Liga strikers. It shows a particular contrast to Marchena who is shorter yet exhibits a far greater level of strength than Albiol. I'd propose a dramatic decrease to an 83 for his Balance.
At the same time I propose an increase to Albiol's Response. He reads the game very well and has sharp reactions, this proves to be beneficiary to Valencia when crosses are made into Valencia's box and for when Valencia start off a counter-attacking move. So to see Albiol on an 81 for Response is...well....shocking to be honest. I would have said that he could sit at an 84, pending further discussion.
He also has a decent ball control for a player of his position, although this wasn't that surprising considering his past as a defensive midfielder. He controls the ball well and makes deft touches that, again, contrast his partner - Marchena. He has the ability to bring the ball into play and, as I've said previously, can help start counter-attacking moves. I'd say that he could see an increase to a 75/76 value, he's similar to the likes of Pique and Mexes in this area.
It's a shame, Albiol is likely to be one of many players that leave Valencia this summer due to the fire sale that will occur. Valencia's debt is now at a shockingly high level and it would seem that a mass exodus will occur, hence why rumours about the futures of Villa, David Silva et al have occured again.

For what i have seen in the last matches with spain i think that he could be a little bit faster, i haven't seen to much of him cause he doesn't play regulary in spain and i don't use to see valencia, so i can't make a suggestion, but if you have the same feeling could be discussed.
If i were florentino i would sign him, RM needs a CB, and he is spanish, young and a good CB. And he will make a good partner with pique in the edge of the defense in the future, we have defense for many years.
