Malaga sign Atletico duo
Spanish First Division strugglers Malaga today signed two players from rivals Atletico Madrid, agreeing deals for highly-rated Spanish U-21 defensive midfielder Ignacio Camacho and goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo.
Camacho, 20, has signed a four-year contract while Asenjo has gone on loan until the end of the season.
According to Spanish press reports Camacho - capped at all youth levels - has an option written into his contract that he can leave Malaga after two seasons.
Asenjo, 21 and a member of the Spain side that won the 2007 European U-19 title, joined Atletico last year on a four-year contract for €5.5million from Real Valladolid but has recently lost his place in the team to David de Gea.
