Zaragoza swoop for Franco

Real Zaragoza have confirmed the signing of former Argentina goalkeeper Leo Franco from Galatasaray.

Franco, who has played more than 300 Primera Division matches in spells at Mallorca and Atletico Madrid, is back in Spain to make Zaragoza his fourth club in the country, having also had a brief stay at Merida.

The 33 year-old, who appeared for Argentina at the 2006 World Cup, is set to compete with fellow new signing Toni Doblas for the goalkeeping spot next season.

Doblas has returned to the club on a two-year contract following a spell at second division Huesca, but is likely to be on the bench next season. Franco, 33, has also signed a two-year deal with the Aragonese outfit.
