Official: Betis Snap Up Monzón

Real Betis have muscled out German side Hamburg SV to win the race for the signature of Argentine leftback Luciano Monzón.

Spanish sports daily, Marca has confirmed that Real Betis have completed the signing of Argentine leftback, Luciano Monzón from Boca Juniors for €9 million.

The 21 year old had looked set to join Bundesliga side Hamburg SV last week after a pre-agreement had been reached with Boca. But while the player was still in China on Olympic duty, the deal was not officialized in ink, thus giving Betis an opportunity to make a late approach for the left back.

And the Andalucian outfit appear to have won the battle after signing the youngster to a five year contract. Monzón had, in fact, already landed in Seville to complete his medical yesterday and made a brief appearance in front of the media.

“I am very happy to have signed for Betis and I want to thank the club for showing their confidence in me to pursuit and complete this deal,” he beamed.

Betis will fork out €2.5 million in cash to Boca immediately while the rest of the transfer fee will be paid off from June 2009 onwards.
