Big-spending Malaga have agreed to buy central defender Sergio
Sanchez from Sevilla, their eighth signing of the close season,
the Qatari-owned La Liga club said on Friday.
"Both Andalusian clubs have reached an agreement today for
the transfer of the defender Sergio Sanchez," Malaga said in an
"The player signed his new contract for the next four
seasons and will be presented to the fans tomorrow in La
Rosaleda Stadium," the club added.
Malaga did not disclose any financial details but local
media reported they had paid 2.8 million euros for the 25-year-old, who has made a remarkable comeback after
heart surgery last year.
Sanchez will join Argentines Diego Buonanotte and Martin
Demichelis, Dutch duo Joris Mathijsen and Ruud van Nistelrooy,
Spanish pair Joaquin and Nacho Monreal and French midfielder
Jeremy Toulalan as new recruits at the club.
Malaga were bought by a member of the Qatari royal family at
the end of the 2009/10 campaign.
After finishing 11th in La Liga last season they are
building a squad for coach Manuel Pellegrini that they hope will
challenge for a European qualifying berth next season.
