Rayo to sign Cadiz’s Alvaro Garcia

Rayo Vallecano are closing in on the signing of midfielder Alvaro Garcia from La Liga 123 side Cadiz, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 25-year-old has featured 77 times for Los Gaditanos in the Spanish second tier across the past two seasons after playing a significant role in the club’s promotion in 2016.

The creative midfielder is known for his technical ability and calmness in possession, starting his career at semi-professional side San Fernando before a move to Granada in 2013 as a 20-year-old.

He went on to have a loan spell at Racing Santander and Cadiz before joining the Andalusian club on a permanent basis last year.

Onda Cero now say a move to newly-promoted Rayo is close, with an initial €5m payment for 75% of the player’s rights.

Garcia has a release clause of €8m which will increase to €15m should Cadiz win promotion the top flight, and had already rejected a €5m offer from the Chinese Super League, according to reports.
