We have at least seven more games to play this campaign, but Atlético have already started planning for next season.
If our finances allow it, then we’ll surely look at the transfer market for reinforcements this summer. According to AS one of the targets we have identified is Miguel Pérez Cuesta, better known as Michu.
The attacking midfielder joined Rayo Vallecano as a free agent last summer and signed a two year deal. Along with Atleti’s Adrián, he has to be considered one of the best signings in La Liga.
Michu has already scored 15 goals in Rayo’s succesful campaign and is the main reason for our neighbour’s comfortable 14th position in the league.
Allegedly, José Luis Caminero has already spoken with the player’s agents to discuss the possibilities of a transfer. Michu, who has one year remaining on his contract, has a €4 million buy-out clause.
Apparently we face competition from Valencia for the 26-year-old’s signature.
Atlético might make a move after we’ve decided on the fate of loanee Diego, and Raúl García, currently on loan with Osasuna.
Also to be considered are Joel, Jorge Pulido and Diego Costa, who have proven to be incredibly valuable to Rayo since joining them on a temporary move from Atlético in January.
Do you like the prospect of signing Michu?
