Manolo Gaspar, Málaga’s sporting director, spoke about the ‘Horta case’ and the possibility of receiving a significant income from the player. The paleño made clear the position of Malaga regarding this matter. “Sporting de Braga is obliged to listen to proposals and, if they do not accept, they will have to pay Malaga an amount corresponding to 67 percent of the offer. The money from this operation is very important to us“, he stated in the Portuguese newspaper Record.
Another means of great openwork in Portugal, To Ballalso reflects the feelings of the sports director of Malaga regarding this operation: “Malaga has 67 percent of the player’s pass. It is also true that there is an agreement and that Braga, if it rejects an offer of more than five million , must keep 67 percent of Malaga”.
Benfica offered a few days ago ten million euros for the Portuguese attacker, a proposal that was rejected by Braga. And that’s when Malaga appeals to a clause in the agreement reached at the time with Braga from which it follows that the Portuguese club has to take over all of Horta’s economic rights if he rejects an offer.
The Portuguese club, from the mouth of its president, Antonio Salvador, stated that Braga is “the only entity that decides on its assets. Braga has the right not to want to negotiate for Ricardo Horta and it is not going to do so.”
