Ayala you cheeky monkey!

Robeto Ayala has agreed to join Real Zaragoza on a three year deal for a fee of €6 million.

Not that shocking really, so why is he a cheeky monkey? Because in Ferbruary, Ayala agreed to sign for Villareal from Valencia after he was informed his contract would not be renewed. So Villareal stepped in and wrapped up the free transfer. Only now, Zaragoza, who recently lost talisman and captain Gabriel Milito to Barcelona, have placed a bid for the amount it took to trigger a release clause in Ayala’s contract and without having even kicked a ball for Villareal, Ayala is suddenly on his way to Zaragoza.

Ayala, who won two league titles at Valencia as well as leading them to two Champions League finals and winning a UEFA Cup under Rafa Benitez, is now 34, and is currently part of the Argentina squad preparing to face Brazil in tomorrow nights Copa America final.
