Transfer news


31 May 2006
A lot of information has appeared recently about the possible signings that Depor could make for next season. <i></i> presents a summary of these cases. It seems the club is focusing its efforts on the arrival of Alexis, but other options such as Fernando Navarro haven’t been discarded. The club also seems to be searching for a new striker.

Dudu Aouate: (28) The new president of Racing Santander, Francisco Pern?­a, has spoken with the keeper. The club’s intention is to block his exit since they are convinced that he is an important player in the Cantabrian team. Besides, the player’s agent, Gustavo Crmko, told El Ideal Gallego that he hasn't received any calls from Deportivo. Considering this, it seems improbable that Aouate will replace Molina.

Alexis Ruano: (20) The deal is now in deadlock. M??laga wants Iv??n Carril and R??ben Castro as part of the transaction, but Deportivo wants to include Pablo Amo and Momo. The Andalucian club has told the man who is in charge of negotiations, Carlos Rinc??n, that the deal is off unless Depor offers €2 million plus the two players they want. Lendoiro has reached an agreement with Alex?­s' agent, Manuel Garc?­a Quil??n, but without M??laga’s approval, the deal will not be fulfilled. However, Depor's officials are convinced that the defender will arrive in La Coru?±a for the next season.

Fernando Navarro: (23) The Catalan defender arrived from Barcelona on a loan spell to Mallorca. He has satisfied the club's officials with his performance and Depor showed interest in the player, but his agent, Jos?© Mar?­a Orobitg, has told La Opini??n that Mallorca is closer to a four-year deal. Stuttgart is also keeping tabs on the left-sided defender.

David Navarro: (26) Deportivo has been interested in this central defender since last season, but Valencia will only let him go on a loan spell. His agent, Jos?© Mar?­a Orobitg (the same as Fernando Navarro’s), told La Opini??n that he was optimistic about David’s move to Depor, but admitted that during the last few days he has not had any contact with Lendoiro about this.

Juan Arango: (26) Several clubs are interested in this talented player. Deportivo, Atl?©tico de Madrid and Osasuna have shown the most interest and Arango has admitted that a transfer to any of these teams would mean progress in his career. But Mallorca is asking €7 million for him. Deportivo wants to offer Diego Trist??n in exchange for Arango, but it seems that Mallorca prefers cash instead of any player swap.

Jordi L??pez: (25) The Sevilla midfielder is one of the main options to replace Aldo Duscher if he goes to the Premiership. The player’s agent, Ra??l Verd??, has confirmed to El Ideal Gallego that Deportivo is a good choice for Jordi. He announced that the player will make a decision within the next two weeks. It was previously reported that Sevilla was asking €1 million for the player, but it seems that the final amount could reach €1.5 million.

Mateus Galiano Da Costa: (21) This striker will participate with Angola in the next World Cup and it seems that Depor might be interested in him.  He has a Portuguese passport and is currently playing with Gil Vicente. Some reports coming from Angola say that the president of Gil Vicente, Antonio Dueza, is in La Coru?±a trying to negotiate a deal, but the local media haven’t confirmed any meeting between him and Lendoiro.

Roberto Soldado: (21) According to AS, Soldado would be pleased to arrive at Depor. His agent, Alberto Toldr?? Jr., told the paper that Soldado prefers the Galician club because of the interest that Caparr??s has shown in him. However, it's expected that the new president of Real Madrid will not let him go so easily, and that the only option left is a loan spell. AS speculates that Lendoiro will accept it only if a buyout option is added to the contract. For the moment, Depor's president is waiting to see who the next president of the Madrilian club will be in order to start negotiations.
