After a season without any titles, Diego Simeone and his colleagues must be thinking of a revolution. Indeed, Atlético Madrid are certainly preparing to end a disappointing season. It seems like a long time ago that the victory in the European Super Cup had given the red and white fans the chance to witness a season full of satisfaction.
But, as we know, that wasn’t the case: They were out in the Champions League knockout rounds with Juventus, in addition to having to watch Barcelona’s domination in the league.
Now, the Colchoneros are forming a sort of revolution. With Diego Godin (amid Inter rumours), Filipe Luis and Lucas Hernandez all moving away from Atlético Madrid, their replacements quite possibly have been identified as Marca Bartra, Alex Telles and Juan Mata.
Diego Costa will also be leaving Atlético Madrid, with PSG onto the opportunity; whilst Héctor Herrera, captain of Porto, is heading over to the Spanish capital. It is time for a change at Atlético, and this is exactly the time when a free betting bonus can come in handy for betting enthusiasts that want to have some fun with transfer window specials.
Juan Mata sounds promising for Atlético Madrid
Years ago, the name of this player from Burgos, Spain was in the running to be an Atlético Madrid player. Now, coming from England, he is back into the orbit of one of his local clubs.
The 30-year-old Manchester United player is free at the end of this season, in what seems like a great market opportunity. According to The Sun, Atlético want to reinforce its midfield with a quality footballer and one which they would not have to pay any amount for his transfer.
In recent times, Mata has not hidden his intentions of the possibility of returning to Spain after several years in England. Where he played, in addition to his current team, at Chelsea. Mata moved to England, after making his mark amongst the elite in the team at Valencia. Still, Barcelona is another one of the teams that have him on their agenda.
United still hope to retain him, but everything indicates that next summer he will leave Old Trafford to sign his last big contract.
Joao Felix has long been in the crosshairs of Juventus
For Juventus, meanwhile, there is a transfer market battle with Atlético Madrid. The Bianconeri have long been in pole position for the purchase of this new Portuguese wonder boy – Joao Felix. According to various sources, for the Old Lady, there are various pitfalls from Spain. It seems that even Atlético Madrid want the Benfica striker for next season. After a double confrontation in the Champions League knockout rounds, there is a new clash between Juventus and Colchoneros, this time on the transfer market.
Benfica, on the other hand, are not willing to free Joao Felix, except for a millionaire’s offer. Atlético Madrid would have to, in this sense, allocate 120 million euros to convince Benfica to let the young Portuguese talent leave. Now it is up to Juventus to make the counter-move where Ronaldo is eagerly awaiting his young Portuguese counterpart.
Will Jurgen Klopp sell Grujic for €40m to Atlético Madrid?
This news has unsettled all Hertha BSC fans. Serbian Midfielder Marko Grujic, who is on loan from Liverpool, is being seriously hounded by Atlético Madrid, according to ESPN. Liverpool is said to be requesting a transfer of 40 million euros.
Jurgen Klopp is hoping to invest in more profitable assets, but only if the transfer amount is met. The 23-year-old was the first transfer that Klopp invested in back in 2016. However, he has struggled to get a place in the Reds’ first team. After he was sent over on loan to Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade, Grujic decided to spend a season over at Cardiff City. He has impressively assisted the Bluebirds to reach the Premier League.
Neil Warnock was interested in doing his best to get a loan or a permanent deal. However, the Serbian international (who went to the World Cup in Russia) moved over to Germany to join Hertha Berlin for the season.
And now, ESPN suggests that Atlético Madrid are after Grujic on a permanent contract.
