Atlético Madrid look set to have offloaded Guilherme Siqueira to Valencia after the left-back agreed an 18-month loan deal with Gary Neville’s side.
With only four appearances for Atleti under his belt so far this season, the defender’s future at the Vicente Calderón has always been in doubt, and it is only a matter of time before his departure is confirmed.
Signed only in the summer of 2014, Siqueira enjoyed a good start to his Atlético career but his performance dropped in the latter half of the season. It was always going to struggle to hold onto his place when the club re-signed Filipe Luís from Chelsea.
Linked with Benfica in the summer, that move fell through, whilst the 29-year-old’s most recent rumoured destination was expected to be Newcastle United in the Premier League.
That move collapsed too after Gary Neville’s side moved in to capture the Brazilian.
Siqueira has passed his medical and all that’s waiting before he is officially a Valencia player is the rubber stamp from either club.
