Malaga sell Santa Cruz to raise funds for Amrabat 


Malaga have taken a step towards signing Galatasaray winger Nordin Amrabat following the sale of Roque Santa.

The La Liga side have raised €2.25 million from selling the Paraguayan international to the Mexican club Cruz Azul.

Amrabat is currently on loan at Malaga from Galatasaray on a one-year loan deal. The La Liga side have a €3.5 million buy out option which runs out in May 2015.

Malaga are however, having problems raising the necessary funds for the Moroccan international.

The Morroccan international has been in impressive form at Malaga and has three assists and three goals in his last five league games.

Amrabat was recently named in Marca’s October La Liga Team of the Month
