Transfer news: Weligton has told the club to save themselves and sell Santi Cazorla
Malaga full back Weligton has urged the club to sell Santi Cazorla if it means that the club survive.
The Spanish side spent 50million euros on their way to claim fourth place in La Liga but they have failed to pay their players and could be relegated and expelled from the Champions League if this is not rectified by August 18.
Weligton told Marca: “There are no secrets about the situation the club is in. We have had some meetings amongst the players and we continue to believe in the club.
“We know the difficult situation they are in. We are about to close the sale of one player and with this money part of the problem that we have can be solved.
“We are in an awkward situation. Everyone expected more signings, more surprises, to continue being the team in fashion.
“But, for certain reasons, including many we don’t know, the chairman has now stopped investing money. We are living in a delicate moment, but there are great players here and a good bond between them.
“Everything is not lost. If we have to sell players to fix the problem then sell them and start again at zero. The club has to do what is necessary to solve the problem and it cannot wait. We cannot let the institution go down.
“If we have to sell players then we have to sell them and we can play with those that are left or those in the youth team.
“We are now expecting to be in contact with people from the club but we don’t have time to wait.”
