Miku: Scored twice in Getafe's 5-1 victory over Sevilla
After Getafe's impressive 5-1 win over Sevilla, Spanish football writer Sid Lowe is predicting a summer of transfer activity in the south of the capital.
Just under a year ago, Getafe were bought by the Dubai-based Royal Emirates Group and their latest win means that Angel Torres' men are only one point away from sixth in La Primera - a position that ensures qualification to next season's Europa League.
"The Sheikhs that have come in at Getafe will release funds in the summer for new players," said Lowe.
"We are not talking Malaga money - the club will not be spending a fortune but what they can do is keep their best players and maybe make a few additions too."
Getafe, who play at a stadium with a capacity of less than 20,000, have been in Europe before. They went out of the UEFA Cup in 2008 in the quarter finals - losing on away goals to Bayern Munich.
"For a short period of time, Getafe basically became the second team for everyone in Spain but that is also a problem for them - most of their supporters in Madrid are also Real Madrid or Atletico fans too."
