Real Madrid flop Royston Drenthe set to join Spanish fourth-tier side Racing Murcia after announcing bankruptcy aged 33

ROYSTON DRENTHE is set to sign for Spanish fourth tier side Racing Murcia, according to reports.

The news comes just a month after the 33-year-old former Real Madrid and Everton star announced his bankruptcy.


The 33-year-old is currently plying his trade in the Dutch Division Two with Kozak Boys, but has some problems off the pitch.

But he will be back earning a living in Spain if he passes a medical, according to Feyenoord TM.

As reported by Dutch news-site AD, a court in Breda handed down a bankruptcy order at the beginning of December.

But Drenthe is confident the matter will be resolved, telling Voetbalzone that he 'didn't know exactly what is going on'.

He also added: "I am always under a magnifying glass, but it will be resolved as it should."

Drenthe has previously revelaed that he had lost £3.2MILLION earned from what looked like a promising football career.

He started his career in his homeland with Feyenoord, before a big-money move to Real Madrid.

But Drenthe failed to find his feet in Spain, and after just 46 games in five years, including spells on loan at Hercules and Everton, he joined Alania Vladikavkaz.
