Osasuna President Miguel Archanco has accused Malaga of missing a payment on Nacho Monreal and is concerned they’ll also miss another one soon.
The Costa del Sol outfit signed Monreal from the Pamplona outfit in summer 2011, but according to Archanco, have not honoured the terms of the transfer agreed.
“Malaga owe us €200,000. I hate to see them compete with someone in Europe too that they have not paid for,” he told a Press conference today.
“The deadline on the payment was 10 days ago and there is another in December that is for close to €1m. I can say that we are trembling.”
The President also confirmed that the club have not been paid an amount of more than €800,000 that they expected to receive from Bayern Munich, for his transfer from Athletic Bilbao.
Osasuna argue that there was a clause in the midfielder’s contract entitling them to a fee, for having developed the player before his move to the Basques in 2006.
Archanco also commented on the club’s confused sponsorship issue with the local government over the naming rights of their ground, saying that he ‘knows nothing’ of any developments or deals agreed, and also confirmed that the club will not be making any moves in the January transfer window.
