RCD Mallorca is not accepting to exchange the debt of Dudu Aouate for the one of Albert Luque; Depor was trying to arrange a deal in order to close the case, but the Majorcans need the money.

On the past week it was reported that Mallorca and Deportivo were negotiating an operation in which the unpaid debts in the transfers of Albert Luque and Dudu Aouate would have been exchanged, but on Wednesday an unrevealed source at the Majorcan club told to newspaper La Opinión A Coruña that “there isn’t any existing negotiation with Deportivo, we just want to cash the money.”

Deportivo still owes €1,260,000 Euros to Mallorca in order to close the €15 million operation made in 2002, of this amount the overdue payment is now of €460,000 since the Galician club didn’t fulfill the payment that corresponded to the month of October. Meanwhile, Mallorca owes €800,000 to Depor as part of the transfer of keeper Dudu Aouate, but the payments in this operation were negotiated for the year 2010.

The intention of President Lendoiro was to ‘exchange’ both debts and leave Depor with a smaller obligation, but Mallorca is also at the middle of a financial crisis and they need the money now, reason why they are refusing to negotiate. The main problem is that Mallorca needs to pay in the coming months part of the transfer for striker Aritz Aduriz.

For Deportivo it represents a serious problem, because Mallorca already presented a protest to la liga, which is now blocking the opportunity to make any signing during the winter window. Besides, the Majorcans sued Depor in a courthouse of La Coruña, which means that the assets of the club Galicians could garnished. There other similar cases that still opened, more in concrete the ones of Atlas for Diego Colotto and Atletico Baleares for Xisco
