This summer Atlético signed Arda Turan, Diego, Falcao and seven other first team players. But the club also invested in four more players that we may never even see play for los Rojiblancos. Dani Pacheco, Rubén Micael, Júlio Alves and Samson Olaleye all joined in the off-season but were instantly transferred to other clubs.
According to reports out of Italy and Spain, Atlético striker Diego Forlán appears set to join Inter Milan for a fee of €5 million, while Wolfsburg’s Diego Ribas is said to be close to finalising a move to the Vicente Calderón. Atleti have also reportedly taken Liverpool midfielder Dani Pacheco on loan with a purchase option, though he will be playing at Rayo Vallecano this season.
