Lendoiro is having troubles negotiating the incorporations of the desired reinforcements, but he has one ally: the same players that he wants to sign. This is an important factor that could be crucial for Deportivo’s interest. Also, it was officially announced that Atl?©tico Madrid will join AC Milan as guests in the next Teresa Herrera tournament.

The war for Alexis Ruano (20) has more fronts everyday. If the interest of Deportivo, Villarreal, Valencia and Getafe wasn't enough, yesterday it was confirmed that Celta and Liverpool are also chasing the player. M??laga knows that the defender is the best asset in the squad and for that reason it won't be sold so easily. The Andalucian club wants at least €3 million, an amount that only Getafe is willing to play.

But Alexis wants to come to Depor, a fact that his agent, Manuel Garc?­a Quil??n, explained to the papers: "Alexis wants to join Depor, otherwise he would have already signed with Getafe." The agreement between Depor and the defender is done, but the Galicians are still trying to convince M??laga. It's expected that Lendoiro will try to solve the differences during the next week.

Two Other players that are wishing to join Depor are Nen?© (24) and Dudu Aouate (28). Newspaper El Ideal Gallego informed that the same Nen?© has phoned Piterman trying to convince him about his exit to Depor. The Brazilian also expressed his hopes to Depor Sport: "The summer will be long and everything seems to be calm, but it’s clear that Depor is my best choice. The Brazilians always performed well in La Coru?±a and the fans already showed me their support."

Aouate is another player using the microphones to show his interest in arriving to Depor, as he said to the reporters: "I think that I will end up playing in Deportivo. I already talked with my president and I said that my will is to join Depor. It's an interesting club, I could win titles or play in European competitions. Right now my exit is a matter of money, because both clubs need to find an agreement. I want to thank Racing for everything they have done, but I want to progress. I hope they will understand."

Finally it was known that Deportivo already presented an offer for Jordi L??pez (25). His agent Ra??l Verd?? is collecting offers in order to present them to Sevilla. It's known that Osasuna and Celta are also chasing the player. It's expected that during the next week the Sevillan club and Jordi will decide what's the better offer.

But Lendoiro is also busy with other issues. He has arranged the participation of Atl?©tico Madrid in the next Teresa Herrera, the tournament will be the main event of the centenario. AC Milan already confirmed its participation. Now, Depor's president is trying to convince the Galician authorities about the participation of the Selecci??n Gallega. Without doubt this five star competition will celebrate the first 100 years of the club.
