Now that Norwich City have been officially relegated, talk will turn to who goes and who stays amongst the supporters, something that is already happening with my work colleagues.
According to Michael Bailey, Norwich City correspondent for The Athletic, the Canaries could sell as many as three of their young stars, if the price is right, in the upcoming transfer window.
One of City’s brightest stars is Emi Buendia, a player who despite having scored only one Premier League goal, so far, is likely to be on the wish lists of plenty of clubs and, having arrived in Norfolk from sunny Spain, he is likely to have a potential appeal to La Liga clubs as well.
Sky Sports are reporting that Buendia is a target for Atletico Madrid as well as also interesting Valencia this summer.
Emiliano Buendia insists he is "happy" at Norwich, but Atletico Madrid are among several clubs interested in a summer transfer deal.

As you would expect, Emi is saying all the right things about being “happy at Norwich” but let’s be honest, a club like Atletico Madrid could most likely comfortably afford him as well as offering him a return to Madrid, after his previous time at former club Getafe.
I guess we better get used to this sort of speculation because I’m anticipating plenty of it.
