CLUB NEEDS DRASTIC RESTRUCTURING BEFORE GOING AHEAD WITH SALE
Málaga in critical situation
JESÚS BALLESTEROS / RAMÓN FUENTES 08/01/2012
Málaga football club is going through one of its most troubled times in recent years. The current owner, Sheikh Al-Thani, wants to sell the club. No one at the club HQ is denying this, and so it has become accepted inside the club. The owners' aims are to reduce the club's basic debts to facilitate a sale.
At Málaga they are hoping that inside a couple of weeks, they will have some cash to start dealing with outstanding payments. And the only way to get cash is by selling players.
Cazorla is highly likely to be the first transfer away from Málaga, and another who could bring in some ready cash to the Andalusian side is Rondón, between €8 million and €10 million. At present there have been two offers, both from Russian clubs.
These two players apart, the most valuable players in the squad are Isco, Toulalan or Joaquín. They are popular players who could bring in substantial sums to fill Málaga's empty coffers.
The squad, who were not paid the first instalment of their wage arrears on Tuesday, met in the evening. They then attempted to have a meeting with the club, but no one would see them. Exhausted after their journey from Venezuela, they discussed the situation and decided to have a meeting before training on Wednesday, because they don't agree with the restructuring measures. One of the proposals which came out of their discussion was the idea of not working on Wednesday.http://www.marca.com/2012/08/01/en/football/spanish_football/1343846664.html
Personally think we should offer a 15-16m combo to Isco & Rondon.
