Atlético continue to look for players to fill the void that’s been left by Sergio Agüero’s departure, but so far with little success. Last week the reliable Spanish news agency EFE reported that Atleti had made a €12m approach for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo. Today we made a new offer, says AS, but Espanyol still won’t budge. The Catalans are holding out for €20m for the 25-year old, but might be willing to drop their prize a bit if Atleti persist.
We’ve taken the time once again to round up all of those rumours floating around the internet. Elias was unwrapped as an early Christmas gift today, but are more signings on the way? It seems as if we are still looking for another midfielder, because the Spanish press keeps linking us to offensive players.
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.
