Everything indicates that French International & Sevilla FC forward KEVIN GAMEIRO will be heading for Atletico de Madrid. The catalyst occurred days back when At. Madrid agreed to loan-out of their young Argentine forward Vietto, which indicated it was a "gesture".

At Madrid

The negotiations between Sevilla FC & Atletico are down to the forms of payment. Sevilla FC wants to get as close as possible to the contract release figure of 40M€, while Atletico offers 30M€ plus 5M€ more in variables.

It is the typical case of pull & loosen negotiations which is destined more sooner than later to finish in good port. There is some "controversy" between Atletico fans with the age of Gameiro, 29 years, which puts doubts on the price tag. However, the Frenchman has shown over the seasons with Sevilla that he is a fine goalscorer whose game fits in with the At. Madrid way of Football: counter-attack with sacrifice.

According to Football website "Transfermarket",  Spanish Football Club Real Madrid CF is the world's most valuable Club. With new signings still to arrive & others still to depart the team squad is valued 783,30M €uros.

Real Madrid market value 2016

No team in the World comes close to Real Madrid in these terms, with value increasing season after season. The 11 th Champions League - European Cup - win & title last season has given the Club a huge economic boost. Just Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale & Karim Benzema add up to 260M€.

The Portuguese star´s value with respect to last season falls 10M€ due to "age", however the value of Welshman Gareth Bale & Frencman Benzema are on the rise. Gareth Bale jumps from 80 to 90M€ while the market value of forward Karim Benzema jumps from 50 to 60M€.


The Spanish Football Liga, along with their Clubs, have yet to announce huge signings for season 2016-2017. The English Premier League & the Italian Serie A is causing more a stir with rumours of huge transfers about to occur like Pogba to Manchester United (120M€) or Higuain to Juventus (95M€).

However, while the transfer deadline is the 30th of August there has been some very interesting signings to date with FC Barcelona being very active for far. Here is a summary of the signings - transfers for Spanish Football to date:

La Liga new players 2016-2017

  • Roberto - signed by RCD Espanyol from Olympiakos
  • Vrsaljko - signed by At. Madrid from Sassuolo
  • Umtiti - signed by FC Barcelona from Olympique Lyonnais
  • Amorebieta - signed by Sporting Gijon from Premier League
  • Digne - signed by FC Barcelona from PSG
  • Kranevitter - loaned to Sevilla FC from At. Madrid
  • Ganso - signed by Sevilla FC from Sao Paolo
  • Andre Gomes - signed by FC Barcelona from Valencia CF
  • Nani - signed by Valencia CF from Benfica
  • Alvaro Morata - signed by Real Madrid from Juventus FC
  • Gaitan - signed by At. Madrid from Benfica
These are just a few names. Sure some other - bigger - names will be announced in coming weeks.


Spanish Football Club FC Barcelona has "beaten" Real Madrid in the signing of Portuguese International midfielder ANDRE GOMES. The 22 year old Valencia CF player will change for Barça after the latter forks out 35M€ in an initial transfer fee. However, the figure is more likely to rise to 70M€ after you add a further 20M€ in variables plus a further 15M€ in individual-collective objetives. 

But there is more, Valencia CF wants on top one of the following players: Montoya, Tello & Samper either in property or loans.

Big money for a player which ended up a substitute in the Portugal team during the Euro 2016 Championship. The real value is in the players age, 22 years & scope for further growth. The idea is to slowly take over from Iniesta who is maturing & will be rested more in coming seasons.


FC Barcelona is back to action with pre-season training & has already announced signings: Denis Suarez, Umtiti & Digne. Barcelona is looking to further sign a midfielder & a foward, with Gameiro & Vietto sounding for this last position.

Until then, Sports papers are currently speculating on the FC Barcelona team for season 2016- 2017, specially the multiple combinations of players in each field position.

FC Barcelona 2016-2017

There are up to five names for each position, a possibility that very few World Football Clubs can afford or have. The competition for a regular place is maximum, while Coach Luis Enrique can stay comfortable thinking about handling the long season ahead. A season which includes local & European competitions.

Until the start of Liga on the 21st of August, FC Barcelona can still announce new incorporations to their star studded squad.

Stay tuned.
