thumbnail Hello,

The club's owner has revealed that plenty of big players are open to a move to the club after their big-money buys this summer and added that there is no limit to his ambitions

Malaga owner Abdullah Al-Thani has claimed that players such as Schalke striker Raul, as well as Inter duo Samuel Eto'o and Wesley Sneijder, were interested in joining the club this summer.

Al Thani has already lured players such as Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jeremy Toulalan, Diego Buonanotte, Santi Cazorla and Joris Mathijsen to Andalusia this summer, and has now made it clear that there is no limit to his ambitions for the club.

"We have already achieved that some of the world's best players are interested in joining us. Sneijder, Eto'o and Raul were all open to a move to Malaga," Al Thani said to Al Sharq.

"We have a detailed plan for the future. Our goal is to make Malaga one of the biggest clubs around in Spain. We want to play Champions League football, or at least Europa League. There's no limit to our ambition.

"We don't care if we have to spend €60 million on 10 players, because we have the resources to sign another one for €60m more."

Malaga finished only 11th in La Liga in 2010-11, but with their new additions are expected to challenge for the top four positions this season.
