The transfer stories are in full flow even before the season has come to an end. If this is the state of affairs now, one could only imagine the pandemonium that could be created once the transfer windows opens. Barca's problems of the season necessiated the reinforcement of more than one position. Since "Necessity is the Mother of Invention", new and fresh rumours get invented every day. One of the problems of having a great season, especially for an underdog is that you get to lose the best players you have got. Most probably that could be what Atletico could be facing this transfer window. Something they won't complain about, since they need the money from the sales very badly.

Everyone expects Atletico to lose a host of their better players this summer. The big clubs could be coming with multi-million contracts, one the club and the players could simply cannot refuse. Atletico's scouts have been pretty good at replacing their crucial players in recent times. One of the players, many teams would be and already are interested is the midfielder Koke. Now it looks like Barca is also after the Spanish midfielder. Obviously it's a story broken by Sport, so it comes with the statutory warning "Believe it on your own peril". Zubizarreta is reported to have identified him as a potential successor for Xavi Hernandez. That's one rumour which could make many Cules happy. But it'more complicated than that. He plays in a position where we need the least of reinforcement, his buyout clause is 60 Million, many Premier League players are reported to after him. Add to this the fact that he could be playing regularly in Spanish National team, that will surely raise the asking price and may start a bidding war.
