    There are 2 rumours that are going rounds:
    1. ATK are in the hunt for a forward. Reported target is David Villa since his loan deal with melbourne city got terminated.
    2. Rather a sad news if true that the atk dressing has got two factions now the indians and the spainish regarding the distribution of prize money. Luis garcia and co want it distributed among only the 15man while the indian camp want it distributed equally. Also ATK owners seems to have backtracked from a few of their earlier promises one of which is match incentives of 500$ per player. The match incentives were paid only for match 1. What more is that players seems to be more infuriated upon hearing that other team owners have provided their players with expensive gifts such as ipads etc. Its is being suggested as one of the reasons behind their loss of form

    @debarghya89 any truth behind it?

    David Villa can't join ATK. He is currently in the United States for marketing reasons. He will be available by December but will that be enough time.

     ATK is looking for a foreign striker as replacement of Basilio..But David Villa is a wild rumor..Besides there will be transfer issues even if it is a loan as he has already played for a club after 30th August..Same reason Mutu transfer was blocked by FIFA

    There were some issues regarding prize money distribution but not true that the team is divided into two camps and has got nothing to do with the team performance..The bigger issue in the team at the moment is the coach and the artificial turf..Garcia is openly against the coach and also the other Spanish players..The Indians are neutral in this..As the tournament progresses the foreigners are getting extremely frustrated with YBK to the point that they are wanting a suspension or a muscle pull to not play!! Also the squad depth of ATK is lowest in ISL and that leaves very little chance of a rotation..The visiting Pune team had 3 players more than the ATK in the reserve bench!

    As for the ipad and stuff, don't know anything about it,But hope it's not true!!!

    Ya, you can be loaned out as many times as possible based on your leagues rules... at least that is how it is with loans of youngsters in England.
