Ajax have added Mauro Damian Rosales to the squad. The right winger from Argentina signed for four years. With Rosales' current club, Club Atletico Newell's Old Boys, Ajax have also reached agreement. Before the transfer deadline, however, some formalities have to be fulfilled. If Rosales is not eligible to play in the Champions League, the deal could fall through.
The 23-year-old Argentine played for Club Atletico Newells Old Boys from 1999. Ajax boss Ronald Koeman: ,,We are happy that we have found the right winger we were looking for. Rosales is a fully-fledged Argentinian international who has just won the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Athens.'' On this olympic tournament Rosales played in six matches and scored one goal.
Rosales is currently in Argentina. He has been picked for the Worl-Cup qualifier Peru - Argentina that will be played in Lima on Saturday.
