Official: Malaga sign Joaquin Sanchez

As I've reported yesterday and previously when I told you that within 24 to 48 hours the future of Joaquin will be resolved, today is the day that it was made official by Malaga CF website. Reports said it was going to be revealed Monday, in order to pump up the signing of Jeremy Toulan and not divide the attention, but I guess someone at their website didn't get the info.

Anyways as I've said yesterday in my previous post I wish Joaquin the best of luck in his new club and hopefully he and Malaga will not be a threat to Valencia CF in the new season.

Malaga signed Joaquin Sanchez for 4 million euros or 4.5 million euros with various clauses and unluckily Valencia management were not able to increase the transfer fee to 5 or 5.5 million euros.

Joaquin Sanchez is the seventh arrival to Malaga CF after the arrivals of Diego Buonanotte, Martin Demichelis, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Nacho Monreal, Jérémy Toulalan and Joris Mathijsen.
