Getafe negotiate Cata Diaz return

Getafe are negotiating the return of Cata Diaz to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez from Atletico Madrid, reports Marca.

Director of football Toni Munoz is understood to have met Atleti officials at the Vicente Calderon on Tuesday morning in an effort to resolve the transfer before the summer holidays.

Diaz, 33, was bought by Los Rojiblancos from El Geta before the start of last season for €1.5m – the only signing that cost Atleti money – but has failed to hold down a regular place in boss Diego Simeone’s starting line-up, making just nine La Liga appearances.

He was also involved in an altercation with fans after the recent Copa del Rey final victory over Real Madrid, ,something that has not gone down too well with the club’s hierarchy, and Getafe are hoping the Argentine international might now be released for a cut-price fee.
