We’re midway through the season and as always rumours are flying around regarding possible transfers. However we shouldn’t forget that we have a few players already under contract who could return to play for us next season. Who could forget about players such as Cabrera, Salvio and Keko? Find out how they’re doing.
Despite the ever-growing list of names being linked with Atlético in the winter transfer window, Rojiblanco club officials assured MARCA that the team “doesn’t need anyone else,” and that no signings will be made in the upcoming winter transfer market. Quique looks likely to have to rely on our canteranos for the rest of the season.
Diego Costa looks set to spend the first half of the season away from Madrid after Quique Sánchez Flores omitted the striker from his European Super Cup squad. Atlético are only allowed to register three non-EU nationals for the upcoming season. Argentine winger Salvio made Quique’s squad, and it’s now more likely than ever that Costa will be shown the door – until January at least.
After an ultimately successful run in the European U19 Championships for Atlético’s cantera, a number of our young players have been called upon to represent their national teams. Mérida, de Gea and Domínguez are among those selected for Spain U21s, while Cabrera could be set to earn his first full cap for Uruguay in a friendly match against Angola.
