Malaga resigned to Sandro sale

Malaga are preparing for star striker Sandro Ramirez’s departure this summer, with Coach Michel admitting his €6m is ‘a bargain’.

A host of clubs including Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Everton have been linked with the 21-year-old who has scored 14 La Liga goals in 21 appearances this campaign.

"We understand that right now he is a player that has an advantage to play in a top club, because if you look at price and performance, he is a bargain for any [club]," Michel told AS.

"Goal scorers cost much more in the transfer market than what clubs would have to pay for Sandro right now.

"I'm not surprised there are many teams that want him and are monitoring him, he is a player that everyone wants to sign and has had a great season.

"It was a great move by [Malaga sporting director Francesc] Arnau to sign Sandro, he is a key player and we are waiting to see what happens because that will mark our planning.

"We know what the transfer market is like and you have to wait.

"What happens to clubs like us is that you hope your good players will not leave."
