Mikel Arteta joined Everton in January of 2005 and in his three years with David Moyes’ men, he has shown the previous clubs he had been at what they were missing. He was an important part of Everton’s fourth place finish that season and established himself as a key player for Moyes team, leading them to the UEFA Cup on two consecutive occasions.
Now, the Spanish midfielder might decide that his time with the Toffees is up as he looks for a fresh challange in his home nation. The Lancashire Evening Post thinks that Atletico Madrid is willing to bring the creative midfielder back to his homeland. But that sounds easier said than done.
The same newspaper believes that Moyes will not settle for anything less than Ã‚Â£12 million, if he was to sell his superstar.
Losing world class players is not something new for Everton’s boss. In 2004, Wayne Rooney left the club for Manchester United and in January of 2006, Thomas Gravesen seeked glory in the all-white of Real Madrid. That season, Everton would go on to surpass Liverpool in the league, despite Benitez’ men managing to win the Champions League.
