Venezuelan striker Jose Salomon Rondon is to leave troubled Malaga for Russia's Rubin Kazan, the clubs have announced.

Rondon, who became the club's highest scorer after arriving two seasons ago from Las Palmas, has signed a four-year contract, Rubin announced on their website.

The 22-year-old, who has 24 caps for his national side, was given leave not to join the club's pre-season tour to Italy last week because he was negotiating his exit.

Malaga also confirmed the move. They said on their website: "The player has a bright future ahead in the Russian league."

The Spanish club announced last week they were conducting an "internal restructuring" amid reports that owner Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nassar Al-Thani, of the Qatar royal family, wanted to sell the club after only two years.

Malaga midfielder Enzo Maresca claimed after their 2-0 friendly defeat by Juventus on Saturday that the club had also agreed to sell Spain playmaker Santi Cazorla, who has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal.

Maresca also warned that losing coach Manuel Pellegrini, whose wages are reported to be causing problems for the club, would be a "huge blow".

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
