Willy Caballero: Malaga goalkeeper linked with Manchester City

Argentine goalkeeper Caballero has been strongly linked with a winter move to Manchester City to be reunited with former Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini.

England number one Joe Hart's recent axing from the City side following a patchy run of form has also come amidst a backdrop of rumours that Pellegrini is keen to bring in Caballero.

Teenage midfielder Darder has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with reports claiming Tottenham Hotspur are following his progress.

However, Casado does not want to lose either player unless the release clauses are triggered, with Caballero's standing at €20million (£16.9m) and Darder's at €40million (£33.8m).

"We will not sell Willy Caballero or Sergi Darder in the January market," Casado told radio station Cadena Ser.

"He (Caballero) will not leave unless someone pays his release clause and he is in agreement. At the moment we are focused on building the squad."

Darder only signed a new contract at Malaga last week after being promoted to the first-team squad this season and he brushed off rumours about his future.

"I am only focused on my work in Malaga," he said. "The future? I am calm and my desire is to progress in world football.

"When I first started pre-season training, I never knew I'd have such an amazing opportunity.

"This is what I've been working for all this time. Malaga really has given me everything.

"I'm so thankful to the club for where I am today, and I'd like to remain here as long as I can. I'll always be grateful to Malaga."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
