Let's go on vacation with Pablo!

Besides playing for the national team, Pablo spent his summer learning to play golf, avoiding the sun so he wouldn't turn tomato red and playing with his new toy...

Guaita & Jordi Alba
- Guaita will be on loan to Liga Adelante (aka Segunda Division) side Real Murcia next season without an option for them to purchase him
- Valencia is looking to loan Jordi Alba to a team in Primera Division

Granero or Emana
We're interested in both midfielders. Real Betis want 15 million euros for Emana, while Getafe want 8 million euros for Granero. Getafe would like Michel, but we're only willing to send Michel out on loan to get playing time in Primera. They are also interestd in Montoro, who spent the last season on loan at Real Murcia.

Bruno will sign for three seasons

The right back will have his medical on Wednesday and will sign on Thursday. He played at Almeria last season, but we've had to negotiate with Real Betis. After they got relegated, their deal with Bruno fell through, but we have to negotiate some things with them since Bruno had given them their word. Last week, we agreed a fee of €1.5 million with Real Betis and this week we negotiated the details with the player.

Miguel Ángel Moyà

We're very close to signing Mallorca's goalkeeper Moyà. The fee has been agreed at €5 million. Apparently we've set a plan with them where we'd pay them the €5 million over the course of 3 years. Things are still at the negotiation state with the club so the details have not been discussed with the player. However, the deal is close to being finalized.
