Malaga midfielder linked to Villa Park for absurd sum

David Ramos

There are rumours around that Villa may be looking to get Malaga midfielder Sergi Darder. That would be exciting, but it's also really unlikely.

One of the hot rumours of the day in Aston Villa land is that the club have been linked to Malaga midfielder Sergi Darder. If you've got a mind like a steel trap, you may remember that Darder scored in Villa's preseason friendly with the Spanish club last summer. Yesterday, he scored the second goal in Malaga's 2-0 win over Villarreal, and while it wasn't pretty it was certainly a solid effort of finishing that could help a club like Aston Villa:

But this rumour isn't one about which we should get too excited. Darder is under contract at Malaga through the 2016-17 season. While that is often something that can be overcome, the buy-out clause is supposedly £33 million, which would seem to be far too much for Villa to pay for anyone who is not a proven star. Add into this the fact that Manchester City and Tottenham, who both have significantly deeper pockets, are supposedly in on the midfielder as well, and it quickly paints a picture of false hope for Villa fans.

Sorry to break everyones' hearts, but the dreams of a Spanish midfield are perhaps a bit premature.
