Sevilla swoop for Trochowski and Manu

Fresh from securing qualification for the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League, Sevilla FC have signed midfielders Piotr Trochowski and Manu from Hamburger SV and Getafe CF respectively.

Sevilla FC have bolstered their squad ahead of next season's UEFA Europa League campaign by bringing in attacking midfielders Piotr Trochowski and Manu from Hamburger SV and Getafe CF respectively.

A German international on 35 occasions, the Polish-born Trochowski has agreed terms on a four-year deal at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan having completed his previous contract with Hamburg. The 27-year-old UEFA EURO 2008 runner-up scored 20 goals in his 180 appearances for the Rothosen, whom he joined from FC Bayern München in 2005.

Manu, meanwhile, admitted he had "completed a dream" after agreeing a reported €5m switch to what he described as "one of the Liga's big teams". The former Club Atlético de Madrid and RC Recreativo de Huelva player – who will pen a five-year deal with Sevilla – netted 37 goals in 159 Liga games over five seasons for Getafe, where he played both in an advanced central midfield position as well as on either flank.
