Rebuilding this club.

I thought it would be fun to speculate about players who could possibly come in to replace Kun, De Gea, Forlan etc.

Give us your best guess of who the club would bring in or who you think they should bring in. Just estimate how much we'd be getting in transfer fees and assume that all the money received would be used toward replacements.

Go!

future doesnt look good, chances are greater that you ll take a trip to la segunda before you can play champions league football in the near future.

In:
A back-up goalie. I think Asenjo needs time to be back and we cannot rely completly on Joel.
Arda - 12 million
Forlan - to stay
Osvaldo - cause he is the only one who is rumoured
A replacement for Tiago -- I cannot think of anybody right now but we should get a quality one here

Out:
Either Raul Garcia or Assuncao not both
Diego Costa - let us put up his hat-trick all across to market him
Tiago is going out I think
Valera - he is already in talks with Mallorca and seems he is interested in a move to Racing.

Gago for 10m... must be having a laugh. He's worth 20 at the very least.

Atletico has nothing to lose. If CL was unreachable with Kun and De Gea this year, it will be even more unreachable next year. Segunda is unlikely going to happen because other teams suck even more. Prepare yourselves for boring La Liga and EL matches.

It would be good to invest in cheap youngsters or something, instead of buying average 25 year olds.

I like Atletico but I haven't watched any of its games in ages, because La Liga simply sucks. There's nothing to play for and now with Real and Barca buying Kun and Rossi it will be even more boring, if that is even possible. The most boring league in Europe, together with SPL.

What a bummer. I bet everyone is heartbroken that you are not watching Spanish games..

If Atletico sucks, I'll tell you a team that sucks even more.



Now enjoy the league where 19 average teams fight for the title when Bayern is not interested and EL next season.

Must be like I-league or J - League where better among the crap sides win it..Must say something when German Champions Dortmund can't even beat frigging Sevilla. Real and Barcelona would finish your entire league by Christmas break. Sevilla, Atletico, Valencia and Villarreal will be contenders in your great league..that's the only difference..Real and Barcelona to be precise. having two world class teams is better than having none and average teams becoming Champions.

Coming to the topic,

You should get Osvaldo(12 ME), Paitti(10 ME), Lamela(18 ME) and Parejo. Also should look for Gameiro if Valencia can't afford him.

Arda for 12 million? :dielaugh: Why not just get Piatti instead? Roughly the same price, age, and is used to the league...

It's a speculation thread and what you would do if you were in Manzano and Cerezo's shoes. Well, that's what I would do.

Real want Gago out and Kun in. I'm pretty sure a part exchange would take place in case they want to lower the price Atleti want.

There's absolutely no reason for Atlético to sign a average player like Gago when he doesn't even fit the profile of midfielder the club is looking for. We've got Koke for that position who's a terrifick player.

Surely, you're joking about that line-up as well, not to mention that Godín has to get his citizenship, first then can Miranda stay at Atlético.

Zoric, what kind of player is this Koke kid? Is he more of a defensive mid or could he be the "organizador" that we so desperately need?

Didn't you watch him play? He featured in 17 games for you guys this year, notching 2 goals and 1 assist.
