Imagine - selling Michael Owen to Newcastle and replacing him with Luque! Unthinkable! But let's keep it to ourselves, and let them get on with it.

Real gained some pride last week when the played Barcelona, but the league is out of reach and once again they have to settle for scraps in a wasted campaign. Changes have to be made and the talk in the Spanish capital is that they could offer Luque a chance to rebuild his career.

As for Atletico, Bulgarian striker Martin Petrov who has scored just one goal in 30 appearances since arriving from German club Wolfsburg last summer, and they rue dropping out of the race for Luque when he was available.

Newcastle know they won't get back what they paid for him, but the very fact there are clubs interested must be a breath of fresh air to the Newcastle board of directors.
