After a disappointing first season for Luciano Vietto at Atlético Madrid, it is understood that the young Argentine forward is keen on a move away from the Vicente Calderón in order to secure first-team football.
Celta is the rumoured destination for Vietto, according to AS, with talks between the clubs already at an advanced stage.
It is likely that the Galicians will insist upon a permanent transfer to Balaidos for the 22-year-old, who is reportedly keen to move to Vigo, with the club unlikely to consider any sort of loan move.
Atlético will insist on some sort of buy-back clause, but it is doubtful that Atleti will be able to recoup the €22 million they paid for him last summer.
The forward signed a six-year contract with Atlético when he joined from Villarreal at the request of Diego Simeone, after he enjoyed a fantastic season in yellow.
Atlético fans will be disappointed with the outcome of this transfer, given the amount of promise that Vietto has shown in his short career. With competition for places fierce, a move away was always on the cards for the youngster.
Vietto made 16 starts for Atlético this season, scoring three goals in all competitions. He made a further 11 appearances from the substitutes bench, and scored his most important goal for Atlético against Real Madrid in the derby at the Calderón in October.
Currently, Ángel Correa, Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres are already at Atlético. Perhaps Nico Gaitán, André Carrillo and Borja Bastón are on their way to the Calderón. It would seem that Luciano Vietto would be one name too many.
We could still see Vietto back in the red-and-white of Atlético, if he has a successful spell away with Celta.
Do you agree with Luciano Vietto leaving the club, or do you feel he is a better fit than some of the other rumoured arrivals?
