Alberto Bueno    F    Rayo Vallecano
Bueno had a terrific 2014-15 season in which he scored 17 goals with four assists in 35 appearances.

Fantasy Analysis

The 27-year-old proved to be one of the most exciting frontmen in the league and even registered ten goals in nine games at one point. Bueno's stellar play caught the drew attention from abroad, and he has already signed a five-year contract with Porto, where he is expected to be the eventual replacement to Jackson Martinez.
Pedro    F    Barcelona
Pedro had a frustrating season for Barcelona, scoring just 11 goals with eight assists in just 26 starts in all competitions.

Fantasy Analysis

The Spaniard has obvious talent, but simply cannot break into the lineup regularly with such an array of attacking talent at the club. There is a strong chance that Pedro leaves Barcelona this summer in search of a regular starting place, and several teams in the Premier League and elsewhere are said to be interested.
Aritz Aduriz    F    Athletic
Aduriz had a very productive season for Athletic Bilbao, with an impressive 18 goals and four assists in 30 league starts.

Fantasy Analysis

It was the most fruitful year of the 34-year-old's career in terms of goal scoring, and he helped Bilbao to an impressive seventh-place finish. Aduriz currently has no real competition at the club for the role of top striker, and should be the main man once again next season.
Sami Khedira    M    Real Madrid
Khedira is on the verge of joining Italian champions Juventus on a free transfer, The Guardian reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Khedira's contract runs out this summer and it has been clear for a while that it would not be renewed at the Bernebau. The midfielder has been pushed out of the Real team in 2015 and Juventus could be a perfect move to get the midfielder back on form.
Karim Benzema    F    Real Madrid
Benzema has emerged as a target for Manchester United, The Guardian reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The striker has already attracted interest from Arsenal and now it appears that Manchester United coach Louis van Gaal is also interested in the frontman. With a host of other attacking options already available, Real may be tempted to sell Benzema if the price is right. That's despite scoring an impressive 22 goals in 46 games this season.
Alvaro Negredo    F    Valencia
Negredo had a relatively quiet season for Valencia on loan from Manchester City, scoring six goals with four assists in 30 total appearances (just 14 starts).

Fantasy Analysis

After his falling out with Manager Manuel Pellegrini, the Spaniard returned home to join Valencia on loan, but failed to consistently feature in the starting lineup and didn't put up the numbers that his $45 million price tag would suggest. Negredo wants to return to Valencia on a permanent deal next season, when he will hope to rebound from this down year.
Chicharito    F    Real Madrid
Chicharito will not move to Real Madrid permanently in the summer after the club decided not to activate the purchase option, Marca reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Chicharito scored nine goals in 33 games since his loan move on Aug. 31 but it was not enough to secure a move. Now with coach Carlo Ancelotti being sacked, the Mexican forward faces a return to parent club Manchester United.
Raphael Varane    D    Real Madrid
Varane came on as a 40th minute substitute and conceded once as Real Madrid beat Getafe 7-3 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Varane made an early appearance from the bench when he replaced the injured Pepe before the end of the first half. The Frenchman helped solidify a leaky Real defense and, despite letting in a 42nd minute minute goal just after coming on, looked strong and formed a decent partnership with Nacho.
Asier Illarramendi    M    Real Madrid
Illarramendi played the full 90 minutes Saturday as Real Madrid recorded a huge 7-3 win over Getafe.

Fantasy Analysis

Illarramendi was largely anonymous for much of the game despite Real notching seven goals and putting on a fine attacking display. The midfielder took one shot and won some important challenges but didn't make much of an impact on the match.
Dani Carvajal    M    Real Madrid
Carvajal was a 45th minute substitute and kept a clean sheet as Real Madrid beat Getafe 7-3 Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Carvajal kept a clean sheet after replacing Alvaro Arbeloa at half-time. Real had conceded three in the first half but Carvajal's introduction coincided with the team's back-line shutting out Getafe for the rest of the game. Carvajal didn't seem to do to much defensively and didn't mange to get forward very much but still kept the clean sheet all the same.
