As a Los Boquerones aficionado it really does pain me to say it but Malaga FC are a complete and utter joke right now. After a momentus season in which they exceeded all expectations by securing Champions League football, it seemed like the sky was the limit for the Andalusian football club.
With a formiddable roster of stars to boast about including, Martin Demichelis, Santi Cazorla, Joaquin, Jeremy Toulalan and many more, things were going so right for Malaga FC on the pitch yet clearly VERY wrong off of it.
Thanks to the air of financial uncertainty which has plagued the football club over the past few weeks, they look set to have lost arguably their star player, Santiago Cazorla, a man who could no longer trust his football club and who could blame him?
Despite having a billionaire Qatari ruler as a chairman, Malaga CF still owe millions in debt to a myriad of different parties including European clubs such as Villarreal for the purchase of Cazorla himself and even their own players who have been left without a wage packet in recent weeks.
It’s not like Al Thani doesn’t have the money to bail out his football club either, it just seems as though he forgot he owned a football club in the first place! An official statement popped up on the Malaga official website this afternoon stating the club are under-going financial restructing to adhere to FIFA fair-play regulations.
In Laymans’s terms, Al Thani has finally woken up from his idiotic slumber and looks to be putting a contingency plan together to help his side clear off all their over-hanging debts.
Many other publications including SB Nation and the local Malaga press have reported that there is no danger of Los Boquerones dropping out of the Primera division this season and furthermore that they will still this year be making their highly anticipated Champions League appearance. So crisis averted? Well yes, sort of but this scandalous mess has not come without its price.
Again, according to Malaga’s official club website this morning, Cazorla was granted permission to not attend today’s club training session and rumours are circulating on Spanish newspaper Marca that the 27 year old international is on his way to Arsenal to put pen to paper and sign for The Gunners.
If the rumoured €20 million price tag for the Spanish winger is anything to go by then Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will have landed himself an absolute coup should this deal go through.
The pint-sized midfielder, who is considered by many to be one of the most talented midfielders in Spain (excluding the big two of course) helped spearhead a remarkable 2011-2012 season for Malaga contributing nine goals and a hand-full of assists. Known to be versatile playing on either wing and being quick on the ball, there’s no doubt Cazorla will have a positive impact in the EPL should he become an Arsenal player this summer.
thanks to GOD , finally we get CARZOLA…hmmmm…..that’s great, now what next…? i think RVP has seen the seriousness now..i think he certainly sign for us now….but let us forget about what he said earlier-on last month…..i believe he spoke out of annoying …….he’s our captain…and he’s still be it….” but i think wenger need to have plan B this season….because we only depends on RVP last season….and now with few quality in, all wenger needs to do is to train everyone into a goal scoring this eason..hn!

Is great to see such tremendous change in Arsenal managment this time. All the thanks to all time captain RVP who have added pressure to the club he loved so much by wishing gunners trophies during 2012/2013 soccer season. His attitude towards the club regardless of his position made wenger to wakeup and started looking for quality playeras the sun shines. RVP now that SANTIAGO is added please revise your stand and decision and sign for us. We love you, we appreciate your leadership. May God be with you.
he just posted on his twitter page that he is now an arsenal player!!!!!!! Think he has passed the medical.
I don’t know who you are man but at least I now know that their is one more sensible gooner out there beside me and that is a breath of fresh air trust me on that if van the man didn’t do this in the first place none of these transfers we’re now doing would not be happening, so thank you rvp for the gift of great player even if you do go I have lot of respect for you.
Unfortinately he said this after the signings of Per, Young, Arteta, Santos, Benayoun and Podolski. So i think he was talking about the pay structure rather than the signings.
What convinced AW is Cesc, Nasri, and Clichy leaving in their prime though.
Arsenal FC are moving in right directions now. Yeah we have been feeder club to City, Barca and other so called big clubs, we have changed the complete scenario of making transfers this summer we have showed our intentions to our rivals by making it early. I am excited and looking for the upcoming season, we will definitely get some silverware this season. RVP will revise is stance and sign for us. Proud to be Gunner fan.
