Villarreal, close to signing the two "Samus"? Latest rumors

Malaga needs money. How times change from summer 2011 when we sold them Santi Cazorla for cash on the nail.

Word is Villarreal are very close to signing Samu Garcia and Samu Castillejo from Malaga--this source is reprinting a Marca article that says somewhere in the neighborhood of €12m for both.

We are also interested in Jonathas, along with a lot of other clubs.

Leo Bapistao is apparently coming here on loan with a purchase option from Atleti--that's the other side of the Vietto deal, which is done except that Atleti has to worry about sanctions.

I have also seen a rumor we are talking to Man Utd about picking up Chicharito on loan--I doubt it!
