Report: Malaga want Ruben Castro

A report claims that Malaga want to sign Real Betis forward Diego Castro this summer.

Malaga have reportedly joined the race to sign Real Betis forward Ruben Castro this summer.

The Spaniard has had an injury-plagued season, but is regarded as one of the most talented strikers in La Liga having scored 71 league goals in 135 games for Betis since joining in 2010.

A number of Spanish sides have been linked with a move, but according to Estadio Deportivo, Malaga sporting director Mario Husillos has identified the 32-year-old as a top target.

It is understood that Betis, who finished bottom of La Liga in the 2013-14 season and will therefore play Segunda football next season, want in the region of £2m for the experienced forward.

Meanwhile, the same report has claimed that Castro is seeking in the region of £810,000-a-season as well as a three-year deal.
