Mallorca want long-term Caparros deal

Real Mallorca are examining the possibility of securing boss Joaquin Caparros on a long-term contract until at least 2016.

Caparros has done a tremendous job at the Iberostar Stadium since taking over from Michael Laudrup in October 2011, almost steering Los Bermellones into European competition last term and guiding them into second spot after the first five games of this season.

Consequently, according to El Mundo, the club’s hierarchy wish to tie him down for at least the next four years, which would take him up to the Islanders’ centenary celebrations.

Caparros opened contract talks with Mallorca towards the end of last season before eventually penning a new deal in May after he was linked with moves to both Sevilla and Valencia.

Now, however, it is believed President Jaume Cladera has opened negotiations regarding a new agreement and he is hoping the 56-year-old will commit his future to Mallorca for the foreseeable future.
