AEK seems ready to restart talks with Javi Varas, so that he can be persuaded to continue his career in Athens.
The Spaniard goalkeeper tops AEK's list and it seemed that the two sides were very close to an agreement. But Malaga rushed in and changed the situation by offering him the chance to stay in Andalusia (where he's from).
The matter is not financial, as AEK seems ready to offer the player the personal terms he desires. He asked for some time to think over the options he has. Now, AEK seems ready to restart talks with Varas in order to persuade him to join the team, although alternatives are also being monitored.
