Got caught up to some transfer news in La Liga that I care about:

Atletico is trying to get Gaitan to replace Arda who wants to go.

Valencia got Santi Mina from Celta for 10m... Guess who his agent is? But actually Mina is a good prospect so not so fishy.

Sevilla after Kono 2015 is looking at N'zonzi from Stoke and Wissam Ben Yedder. They always seem to find bargains.

Lastly Villarreal is looking at Rafael Santos Borre from Cali in Colombia.

Also, Barca's next signing is probably going to be Arda Turan.

I read some interview with Vietto that Cholo has laughing at his stamina :lol: He said something like, one training with Simeone is like 3 with other coaches. Now there's a video as well.

So for Atletico so far this season...

They've sold:

Miranda - Inter

Mandzukic - Juve

Arda Turan - Barcelona

They've bought Vietto, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, maybe Jackson Martinez?

Also they have Correa and Oliver Torres back. I believe Correa wasn't healthy to play last season.

Curious to see what other buys they make.

Havent seen him in france, but has been beast in UCL. Creative player, versatile, great technique. Can't say much about how consistent he is as i havent seen him in league games, but gives me hope :)

Also sold Alderweireld to Spurs for 15M, that's roughly 90M from sales.

Pacey, good technique, good finisher.

From what I've seen he's a bit comparable to Chadli (Tottenham) and Mertens. Lots of potential though

Hierro, Raul, Guti and Casillas all deserved to retire as RM players but the management in the club doesn't give a shit about their players. I would never be able to support a club with this kind of "philosophy".

So for Atletico so far:

Atletico: (4-4-2) Oblak, Juanfran, Gimenez, Godin, Siquera, Carrasco, Gabi, Saul, Koke, J. Martinez, Griezmann

The team looks good, although does Carrasco have the workrate to play in that system? Gabi declined last year so he might not be a starter. Oliver Torres might take his place? Also, there is Vietto in attack, and Torres on the bench, so lots of options. And is J. Martinez an official deal yet?

Not sure if I'm missing anyone. They need a new left-back though.

I think Spain league is going to be pretty interesting, will be cool to see what Valencia and Sevilla do with their buys. Sevilla already lost 2 important players but bought Immobile, Konoplyanka (sp.), and Rami.

Take out Saul, put in Vietto. VIetto is 99% sure starter. And yeah, Martinez is official, 35 mils.

If they don't get new LB, i think this will be their starting formation, at least at the start of the season, with Koke being moved to his natural position as advanced CM. Also all of the midfielders/forwards are versatile and will rotate on the field.

Oblak
Juanfran-Gimenez-Godin-Siquiera
Carrasco - Koke - Gabi - Vietto
Martinez - Griezmann.

Moya
Manquillo - Velasquez - xx - Gamez
Garcia - Saul - Tiago - Oliver Torres
Fernando TOrres - Correa.

Spanish media reports that this will be the starting 11, at least playrers wise. This is one of the formations, with 4-3-3/4-3-1-2 as other mentioned formations.
