ÁNGEL GUIRADO ALDEGUER was the most curious case during the summer market of 2006. The winger was a petition made by coach Caparrós although the player was a discard of Córdoba (a Segunda B club). The Sevillan coach suggested that Guirado should gain experience in a Segunda squad, for he was loaned to Vecindario and then to Lugo. At the end, the player was released in the summer of 2007. Another unexplained signing, one that cost €50,000.

The case of Guirado is really enigmatic. He played as a right back in Córdoba, but the Andalucian player was loaned out to Atlético Madrid B during the season 2005/2006. There, he performed as a right winger, a work that he fulfilled with good comments made by the Madrilenian coaches. He also performed as an offensive midfielder. Although he satisfied his bosses at Spain's capital, the coaches didn't suggested his final signing.

For that reason Guirado had to return to Córdoba and soon, he realised that there was no room for him in the first squad. Guirado was competing with other youngsters for the position of right winger, a race that he lost against Javi Lara, another promise in Córdoba. Curiously, Lara was loaned out to Real Unión and Depor's interest in Guirado caused a change in the plans.

Suddenly, Córdoba's officials were affirming that he was an 'important player' in their squad and requested to negotiate with Deportivo. The Segunda B club was asking for €60,000 while Lendoiro was only offering €40,000. After a couple of weeks of negotiation, an agreement was reached. Depor paid €50,000 plus some economic incentives that will depend on the player's performance. Then, Guirado signed a two-year-contract and it was stipulated that he will spend the first season in Vecindario. But Guirado was sidelined there and he ended playing in Lugo during the year 2007.

The Malaga-born midfielder didn't play too many minutes at Lugo, he returned to La Coruña just to find out that new coach, Miguel Angel Lotina, wasn't trusting in him. He didn't even made the pre-season stage in Vilalba and was released from his contract with Deportivo. He ended signing for Levante B on July 31st, 2007. Another signing without a reasonable explanation.
