On June 10th, we carried a report from AS, who claimed that Borja González of Swansea City was a ‘great objective’ for Real Zaragoza.
In today’s edition of the same newspaper, it is once again relayed the player is a dream signing for manager Víctor Fernández.
However, Borja’s transfer seems unattainable, which is why they have shifted their focus to Rafa Mir of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Two days ago, El Periódico de Aragón explained the 22-year-old is earning £1m per year after tax with the Premier League club and his wages are a problem for Zaragoza.

However, today’s AS claims Mir is gaining ‘more strength’ everyday to become the Segunda Division’s second signing of the summer transfer window.
Nuno Espírito Santo allowed the Spain U21 international to spend last season on loan at UD Las Palmas, where he scored seven goals in 30 league appearances.
