Due to the recent rumors about leaving the team, Kevin Gameiro made his statement coming out on an Instagram post: ‘I will defend these colours’.

Atlético Madrid captain Gabi has received a substantial offer to go and play in China, AtléticoFans understands.
A source close to the site has told us that the 33 year-old is considering his options after the bid came in from an unnamed Chinese Super League club.
The media frenzy around Atlético Madrid continues as coach Diego Simeone has been something of the club’s lightning rod in the wake of his side’s poor start to the 16/17 campaign.
Atleti has started the season with just one point in two consecutive games against newly promoted sides Alavés and Leganés, and many have questioned whether Simeone’s demands are now falling on deaf ears.
Atlético Madrid could be set to bring in Monaco’s Fabinho as some much needed cover in the full-back position, according to transfer rumours coming out of Italy.
Fabinho has been linked with Napoli and both Manchester clubs in the last twelve months, after some solid performances in Ligue 1. The youngster has previously turned out for Rio Ave, and once for Real Madrid.
Diego Simeone has rejected the opportunity to join Paris Saint-Germain as coach, according to respected football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
“The intention of Simeone is to remain at Atletico,” Di Marzio said on his official site. “So the answer to the PSG was negative, at least for this first offer.”
With the media jumping all over Simeone’s comments from the post-match press conference in Milan, further reports are now surfacing that ‘clarify’ Cholo’s position.
According to AS, the man who has turned Atlético’s fortunes around believes that his time at Atlético may have come to an end, after taking the club as far as he can.
In what has already been a crazy week in terms of transfer rumours for Atlético Madrid, things took another turn this week as reports surfaced of an Atleti deal to sign André Carrillo from Benfica in another €25 million deal.
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.
In case you missed it, AS are reporting the news that almost all of us wanted to hear: Simeone has given Atlético the green light to discuss a contract offer for Fernando Torres.
El Niño’s loan from Milan is up at the end of the season, and as we talked about previously, it looked as if Simeone was decided on Torres’ departure from Madrid. Only some excellent performances would change his mind.
Atlético Madrid are looking to tie down star assets Antoine Griezmann and Saúl Ñíguez to long term contracts by June, according to reports in the Spanish press.
Both have attracted plenty of interest over the last few months, but AS say that the club want to keep the duo “for life” and are confident that a deal can be agreed.
