Malaga captain Roberto Rosales to leave this summer

June 28, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Roberto Rosales looks set to leave Malaga this summer after interest from Girona and Real Betis emerged.

The 29-year-old in truth, did not have a bad season last term, despite being involved in a relegation and it seems his efforts have not gone unmissed after interest from two La Liga sides.

Girona are extremely keen on bringing in the Venezuelan full-back, whilst Betis, who are actively searching for new recruits to bolster their squad ahead of a Europa League campaign – are too.

Rosales has a current deal at La Rosaleda until June 2019, but he is understood to be keen on an exit and a return to Spanish football’s top flight.

He joined the club in 2014 from Dutch club FC Twente and has since gone on to make over 150 league appearances for the Andalusian club.

His potential exit means Malaga now must replace him with limited options at full-back currently.

Rosales began his footballing career with home town club Caracas, before moving to Belgium with Gent, where he would win the Belgian Cup in 2009/2010.

He would then move to Twente, where he captured his second domestic cup in two years, winning the Dutch Cup.
