Getafe president Angel Torres has flown to Dubai to hold talks with the club's new owners, the Royal Emirates Group, to discuss the transfer budget for the 2011-12 season, can exclusively reveal.

Torres travelled to the United Arab Emirates from Madrid on Friday afternoon and has been holding talks with the wealthy investors throughout Saturday.

The Getafe chief's primary aim of talks with the new owners is to discuss the transfer kitty for the upcoming season, as the side look to improve on their 16th place in La Liga last campaign.

Torres will also discuss strategies and sponsorship deals with the Dubai-based group, who will officially take over the club on July 1, 2012.

The current president is keen to initiate fluid communication between the club and the Royal Emirates Group during the next year so the club are in a strong position to go forward.

Torres will discuss transfer targets with the owners, who have spent limited funds so far in the transfer market.

Goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya has joined from Valencia for an undisclosed fee while Diego Castro, Albert Lopo and Juan Rodriguez have arrived on free transfers.

With the club avoiding relegation last season by one point, it could be a difficult campaign for the Madrid-based team; who lost star midfielder Dani Parejo to Valencia earlier this month.
