Official: Sanabria, on loan to Zaragoza

The Uruguayan midfielder has already trained today under the orders of Juan Ignacio Martínez and will be presented tomorrow from 12:30 pm at La Romareda.


Now official. Real Zaragoza has just announced the incorporation of Uruguayan midfielder Juan Manuel Sanabria, who is on loan from Atlético de Madrid B until the end of the season without a purchase option. This is the twelfth Uruguayan footballer in the history of the Aragonese club and the third signing of this winter market, after the central Peybernes - whose registration in LaLiga is expected to take place today - and the center forward Álex Alegría.

Sanabria, 20 years old, left-handed and 1.74 tall, underwent a medical examination yesterday afternoon in the Aragonese capital and today at noon he signed his contract at the Real Zaragoza headquarters. Before formalizing his assignment, the Uruguayan player, with Atlético's permission, has already trained this morning under the orders of Juan Ignacio Martínez at the Ciudad Deportiva facilities and will be presented tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. at La Romareda by sports director Miguel Torrecilla.

Real Zaragoza, as AS announced, ended on Sunday sponsorship of the transfer of Sanabria, but to make its incorporation official it had to release one of the two extra-community positions beforehand, a step that it took yesterday morning by terminating the contractual relationship with the Brazilian Raí, who this same summer the previous sports director Lalo Arantegui had renewed for three years in one more of his controversial decisions. Raí has several proposals from Segunda B clubs, but aims to sign a contract with Deportivo de La Coruña.

The one who has also found a new destination is the Equatorial Guinean midfielder Federico Bikoro, to whom Numancia terminated his 'rental' contract yesterday and, as this newspaper has pointed out, will play until the end of the season at Badalona, also in Second B, on loan for Zaragoza.

One week before the winter market closes, Torrecilla still has to resolve the exits of Vuckic, Guitián, Nick Buyla, Larrazábal and even James.
