Now that David de Gea is gone, Atlético head coach Gregorio Manzano is in search of a replacement goalkeeper. Following De Gea’s press conference on Wednesday, Manzano told Spanish television station Canal + Liga that the club’s priority is to “sign a forward and a goalkeeper”. With Joel and Asenjo ready to step up, does the club need to sign a starting keeper?
The January transfer window is fast approaching and it seems we’ve already made our first deals, with Elias set to complete his transfer next week when he arrives in Madrid and Simão leaving on his way to Besiktas. The big question among the Atlético faithful is whether we’ll sign a replacement for the Portuguese winger.
