Atlético forward Ibrahima Baldé, currently on loan at Segunda División side Numancia, was robbed in Senegal over the Christmas break by his taxi driver on the way to the Dakar airport. Ibra’s passport was among the stolen items, and he must now wait for a new one before he can travel back to Spain.
Off the back of our cup successes this year, Atlético will be looking to improve on its domestic performances and will be fighting to defend its Europa League title this season. The summer transfer window ended yesterday, and here is a summary of all of our transactions made with our sights set on a top-four la Liga finish and repeat Europa League glory.
Ibrahima looks set to follow team-mate Leandro Cabrera to Recreativo Huelva. An agreement was reached with the Andalusian side yesterday, however, the young forward has requested additional time to review other options on the table for him. Several clubs from Romania have shown interest, as well as Sporting Gijón.
