Official: Malaga sign Emanuel Cecchini

Malaga have completed the signing of Argentine midfielder Emanuel Cecchini from Banfield on a five-year contract.

Earlier this week, Marca verified a report in Argentine-based TyCSports that the two clubs had agreed a €5m fee for the 20-year-old.

The highly-rated midfielder made professional debut for the top flight Argentine club in 2016 and has made 34 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Cecchini was identified by the Andalucian’s sporting director Francesc Arnau as a direct replacement for Pablo Fornals, who joined Villarreal earlier this week for €12m.
