Z?© Castro's agent confirmed Deportivo is very interested in Z?© Castro, however he also confirmed no agreement has been reached with Atl?©tico Madrid. Apparently the main difference between both clubs are the options to be included in the contract.

Nuno Patrao Tula, the agent of Z?© Castro, told to Radio Coru?±a that Deportivo and Atl?©tico Madrid are negotiating the loan of the Portuguese central defender for the season 2008/2009. As he said: "We had contacts between both parts and they still talking, but there are a lot of issues still to be solved." The last phrase confirms the deal is not done yet as it was published by sportpaper Marca and newspaper La Voz de Galicia.

Precisely La Voz de Galicia was the source that published the details of the possible contract. According to the Galician paper, Atl?©tico will loan the defender to Deportivo and the Galician club will have the option to buy the 50% of his rights at the end of the loan (July 2009), while Atl?©tico will have the right to receive a part of the money obtained in a future sell. La Voz also claimed the player will join the squad on Saturday, however it didn't happen since both parts still discussing the options in the contract.

Nuno Patrao Tula also said to Radio Coru?±a that Z?© Castro will be pleased to play at Deportivo, but that the player has other options "It's a club with prestige, it plays well, it's a good city and has the option to play the next UEFA cup, therefore is a nice possibility. But nothing is closed yet and there are other options over the table that we must discuss."
