Not sure if it's accurate or not, but I've heard that we were going to loan him to Atletico, but that we already have eight players out on loan, and that is the maximum allowed by FIFA rules. So we couldn't. D'oh! It's being made to sound as though we simply didn't know the rules. It's hard to believe ... but crikey ... if true ... sheez, doesn't make the front office look too good there, eh?
