Seems like ATLETICO DE MADRID is finally accepting the inevitable, that their star forward Sergio Aguero will be leaving the Club. Things are not all bad, if an alternative Club comes along & pays 45M€ imagine what "goodies" you can buy in the transfer market to cover the absense.

Atletico are apparently working on how to best invest a possible 45M€ income bonus & two names are now "hot" in the SPANISH FOOTBALL rumour treadmill. According to Spanish Sports paper "Marca" Atletico is willing to give VILLAREAL 30M€ for goalkeeper DIEGO LOPEZ ( to cover the gap left by De Gea) & for Italian International forward ROSSI. The last mentioned player was linked earlier this year with FC Barcelona, but that option has evaporated into thin air.
My first impression is that 30M€ is a bit "cheap" for both players, as Villareal have previously told Barça that just Rossi was valued at 30M€. My initial thought is that Atletico may have to raise a bit the offer if they are to snatch both players. Having said this, I think both are outstanding & great value for Atletico, especially Rossi whom scored 19 goals last season & is definitely "World class" material.
You see, there is life & future beyond & after Aguero if he does finally leave. Stay tuned.
