Atlético Madrid have announced that the midfield will be a player lighter than expected this summer, as Matias Kranevitter heads to Sevilla on loan for the upcoming season.

Originally purchased from River Plate last summer, the Argentinean only joined Atleti in January, but failed to force his way into the first team.

A player with a lot of potential, Kranevitter struggled for games as Thomas Partey had a breakthrough season at Atlético.

He wasn’t the only one finding minutes hard to come by. Óliver Torres also failed to find his feet in the Atleti side, despite a number of opportunities.

Sevilla lost their manager this season as Unai Emery moved to PSG following another Europa League success.



  • God move! He’ll develop nicely over there!

    I think being able to play champions league football in a top team as a key player will be immense for him. Especially under their new coach who I think will do well. I hope Krane can start now that Banega and that Polish guy have left. I really think Kranevitter can become a world class player so we should do whatever it takes to get him there. As long as he doesn’t come back to haunt us in those two legs of La Liga (and any other knockout competition we might meet Sevilla in) I’m happy! His first mission? Do everything possible to make sure that Barcelona and especially Real Madrid don’t win their respective super cups.

    Now we have to either find a good temporary home for Oliver and Vietto or find ways to incorporate them fully into our squad.
