Sporting Braga look set to be frustrated in their pursuit of Real Betis' Joao Tomas.Sporting Braga look set to be frustrated in their pursuit of Real Betis striker Joao Tomas.
The hit-man has just spent the season on loan at Braga after being informed he did not feature in Betis' first-team plans.
He enjoyed a productive campaign back in his native Portugal and notched an impressive 15 goals for Braga.
Unsurprisingly the SuperLiga outfit are keen to try and seal a permanent deal for the 29-year-old who still has a further 12 months left on his Betis contract.
However, Los Verdiblancos do not want to sell as they plan to try and use him as a makeweight in a deal to land Malaga midfielder Miguel Angel.
It is understood they have offered é¼1.5 million plus a choice of either Tomas, Ito or Tote.
If Malaga consent to a deal involving either of the other two players then Braga look certain to rekindle their efforts to buy Tomas.
