A report claims that Elche are keen on selling experienced defender Cristian Sapunaru this summer.

Elche are reportedly keen on selling experienced defender Cristian Sapunaru this summer despite his impressive performances last season.

The 30-year-old, who joined Elche last summer, proved to be one of his side's best performers in La Liga during the 2013-14 campaign.

However, according to Marca, Elche are no longer prepared to pay the defender's salary, which is significantly higher than a number of their current squad.

The Romanian has been linked with a return to former club Rapid Buchurest.
