nolando Posted August 24, 2004 Share Posted August 24, 2004 Wanchope Set For Spanish Move Malaga are in talks with Manchester City in a bid to lure Costa Rica striker Paulo Wanchope to Spain. Wanchope, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has already admitted he is keen on moving to La Rosaleda. "It would enchant me to go to play with Malaga," he told his official website. "I would consent to join this club as it is a competitive team that plays in one of the best leagues in the world. "It is actually the fourth time that Malaga have tried to sign me and that fills me with pride. "I would like to go to play with Malaga, but the bosses of both clubs would have to reach an agreement." Wanchope added: "My contract expires in June of next year, but I would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in December 2004." Wanchope's first team opportunities are likely to be limited in manager Kevin Keegan's side this season, with Nicolas Anelka and Robbie Fowler the first-choice strike partnership. The 28-year-old, who has scored 36 goals in 51 appearances for Costa Rica, joined City from West Ham for £3.65million just over four years ago. And the Blues appear to have no objections to the player's departure. "We are in discussions with Malaga about the possible transfer of Paulo Wanchope," said City communications chief Paul Tyrrell. "The player is aware of Malaga's interest in him." **** 36 Goals in 51 appearances!! Is there a better strike rate over that period of time in all of CONCACAF?
