The controversy surrounding the possible departure of Caparr??s has found a pause. Yesterday the Sevillan trainer didn't want to talk with the media, although in Pamplona the papers continue to appoint him as the successor of Javier Aguirre. A possibility that doesn't seems to be real according to Lendoiro's speech.

Newspaper Noticias de Navarra claims that the agreement between Osasuna and Joaqu?­n Caparr??s is almost completed. The same source announced that the coach Javier Aguirre has already communicated his departure to Osasuna's players. According to the Pamplona's paper, Caparr??s will sign a one-year contract with Osasuna and will earn less money than his current salary at Depor.

But Noticias de Navarra also admits that this possibility will only succeed if Caparr??s cancels his contract with Deportivo, and that's precisely the key point on this situation. President Lendoiro announced yesterday that he counts with the Sevillan trainer for the next two seasons, he also said that the only way in which this can’t occur is if both parts negotiate first the cancellation of the deal.

According to some Galician journalist, this mean that Osasuna will be forced to pay in order to obtain his freedom, the contract of Depor with Caparr??s doesn't contain any buyout clause and nobody has an idea of the amount that Lendoiro would ask, but everybody believes that Osasuna will not pay since their budget has another priorities.

In the meantime, Caparr??s has maintained silence. He didn't want to talk with the reporters after yesterday’s training session, but his exit doesn't seem near. He will probably talk about his situation after the confrontation against Alav?©s.

For the match against Alav?©s, the squad has two good news: Duscher has surpassed his problems in the knee and V?­ctor returns after his suspension. It could be their last match with the squad, the same situation that happens with other players like Romero, Trist??n and Molina. The doubts for the match are H?©ctor and Juanma for injury reasons.
