Malaga have confirmed the signing of Paris St Germain defender Diego Lugano on loan until the end of the season.

Lugano, a Uruguay international with 72 caps, has seen his opportunities at the Parc des Princes limited this season, with Thiago Silva, Zoumana Camara and Mamadou Sakho ahead of him in the pecking order.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti was keen to pay tribute to the 32-year-old, who joined the current Ligue 1 leaders in 2011 from Fenerbahce after spending five years with the Turkish giants.

"Lugano has gone to Malaga, where he will surely have more game time," Ancelotti told PSG's official website.

"I want to emphasise that he was very professional. This is a good lesson for the whole group because he worked every day with great professionalism. Diego has set an example."

Malaga are currently fifth in La Liga and will hope the experience of Lugano will help them push for a European place.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
