Ricardo Horta Moves to Spain

Ricardo Horta - Malaga

Vitoria Setubal to Malaga

After negotiations began this week, Malaga have completed a deal for the purchase of Vitoria Setubal’s Ricardo Horta on a 5-year contract. The winger impressed last season at Vitoria Setubal, appearing 34 times in the league and scoring 7 in the process. Still only aged 19 years old, Horta will hope to build on last season’s success at Setubal. And with a reported fee of around 1 million euros, Vitoria Setubal have been compensated well, though they will surely be ruing his decision to leave the club. With such positive performances at just 19, one can only imagine what he would have accomplished this season, should he have stayed in Portugal. But now, Spain is his home. Malaga have a good record over the past seasons for developing young talent, or at the very least gifting young players first-team opportunities. And that’s exactly what Horta needs.
