Atlético transfers: Guido Rodríguez, Cholo’s new request

The Atletico Madrid is working on planning its squad for next season with the aim of putting together a more competitive and solid squad in each position. The results of the current season have set off alarms at the club, which may be left out of the next edition of the UEFA Champions League if it does not finish changing the dynamics of the game and results.

One of the positions that Diego Pablo Simeone wants to strengthen is that of midfielder, because he does not have a top-level defensive profile and that he can fit in with Koke in a double pivot. Rodrigo De Paul is a more offensive profile and without the ball he stands out more for his effort than for his positioning, so they want another name that can give the team more coverage in that area. And they already have a name in their sights. We are talking about Guido Rodriguez.

The one chosen by Simeone

The 27-year-old Argentine, who has an Italian passport, is one of the best midfielders so far this season in La Liga and a player who has given Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Betis Balompié a leap in quality, who is signing a sensational season in all competitions.

Simeone is in love with Guido Rodríguez’s way of playing, which is a profile that fits with his way of seeing football and with what the team needs to be able to regain order at a defensive level, without overlooking that he has individual conditions to organize the team with the ball.

The problem is that Guido is close to renewing his contract with Betis, so his price will increase dramatically. His contract, at the moment, ends in the summer of 2025 and has a termination clause of 80 million euros, which seems an unfeasible price to pay for the mattress team at this time. The possibility of an exchange is not ruled out, but there is still no official approach.
