Atlético are currently without a sports director or manager and have been sent into a week-long tailspin with the news of the more than likely departures of fan favourites Sergio Agüero and David de Gea. That’s not keeping the club from putting some pieces together for the 2011-12 campaign though. Piatti and Gabi are set to join following the confirmed signings of Adrián, Miranda and Sílvio.
It’s only a few days until the European Super Cup is fought for in Monaco. The winner of the Champions League final, Internazionale Milano, and the winner of the Europa League, Club Atlético de Madrid, are the clubs who will decide the best club of the continent. Both teams have changed in major aspects, with perhaps only Atlético changing for the best.
