No advancement has been made about the possible exit of Munitis and the incorporation of Aouate. This is the resumption of a case that can still to be stopped by several complications. Meanwhile, Duscher, R??ben Castro and Scaloni are hurrying up their options in order to leave the club.

The agreement between Deportivo and Racing Santander in order to exchange Pedro Munitis for Dudu Aouate is done since last week, but Munitis hasn't responded to the offer made by the Cantabrian club. Everybody has been expecting his approval to  this deal, but Munitis is delaying his answer too much. A fact that only creates more doubts.

Racing is offering to maintain the salary of Munitis for the next six seasons, an interesting proposal that the Cantabrian player was studying. But nothing has been known during the last two days, the player has even continued to train with the squad although he didn't participated in the last friendly game in Negreira. Apparently, one of the problems is that Deportivo still owing money to the winger, an amount of money that Lendoiro wants to be assumed by Racing. Munitis said after yesterday’s training that he doesn’t know anything yet about his future, he only assured that he will make the official announcement as soon as he can.

The latest complication in this case is Racing's desire of including Lionel Scaloni in the deal. It was previously reported that the operation Aouate-Munitis was including the 50% of the Antonio Tom??s’ rights and the loans of R??ben Castro and Momo, but Racing's coach, Miguel Angel Portugal, wants to include Scaloni in the deal instead of R??ben.

Newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?a reported that Lendoiro is thinking of this possibility, but he will not answer to Racing's president, Francisco Pern?a, until August 15th. This operation seems to be doubtful since Depor's president is studying another offer for Scaloni that's coming from France. In the meantime, the player arrived yesterday to Abegondo in order to start the training. Meanwhile the same source reported that M??laga is asking for R??ben.

Aldo Duscher is another player searching for an exit. The club gave its permission to the player and he traveled to Argentina yesterday, the club only communicated that it was for 'personal reasons', but the papers in Spain are convinced that the Argentinean is simply trying to find the correct offer in order to leave Deportivo. Newspaper La Opini??n reported that some Premiership clubs and Valencia are interested in him.
