Getafe skipper Manu del Moral could be on his way back to his boyhood club, according to Radio Marca.
The 26-year-old arrived at Getafe from Atleti in 2006 and since then has established himself as a key player at the Coliseum.
However, Radio Marca reporter Alfredo Dura claims that the Azulones would not stand in the way of Manu's move back across the Manzanares to Atleti, providing that the transfer fee is correct.
With Manu under contract until the summer of 2012, a price tag in the low millions is not out of the question, now that terms have apparently been agreed upon between new club and player.
While the absence of a popular and versatile attacker will dent Getafe's hopes for the season, there is at least the possibility that the money received for Manu - combined with that for summer departures Roberto Soldado and Pedro León - may be re-invested in the squad for next season.
