Malaga have abandoned their plans to sign Argentinos Juniors midfielder Esteban Rolon, according to club president Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani.
Al Thani took to Twitter to confirm that a move for the Argentine had been abandoned and confirmed the Costa Del Sol club would now switch targets.
“I’ve been working for more than one month to finish everything but there is no solution,” the club president wrote.
“This is why I cancelled the deal because we were wasting time for nothing, I hope you understand.”
22-year-old Rolon has made 53 appearances for the top-flight Argentine side and is now reportedly a target for Genoa.
