After Luis Suárez’s refusal, the Dutch attacker becomes a real option
In order to reinforce the attack of the Athletic and line up a front of fear, Diego Simeon has asked Andrea Berta to sign this player from Barcelona it’s not Adama Traore. The attacker in question is one of those who has performed the least this season, and Xavi would have already said goodbye to him. Fortunately for the culé club, the striker was only on loan.
In this way, the mattress club has requested the transfer of Luuk de Jonga player who still belongs to Sevilla F.C., but he has already openly denied his return to Ramón Sánchez. The reason is due to the performance that the Dutchman showed before leaving for the Camp Nou, and that he continued to show in the Barça squad. The former PSV would arrive to take the place of Luis Suárez, since he refused to renew for another year at Wanda.
Atlético opts for Luuk de Jong and not for Adama Traoré
The Catalan winger is also a very interesting piece who could perform in abundance in Simeone’s tactical scheme. However, what Atlético now needs is a 9 forward to cover for Suárez’s exit, and who also gives a hand to the Brazilian Matheus Cunha. With the departure of the Uruguayan striker, the carioca cannot take care of the mattress attack by himself.
Despite continuing to drag a level well below the expectations of many, the Argentine coach has made an important bet on the Dutchman. At 31 years old, Luuk de Jong could continue to offer good football in an elite team like Atlético, and in a league as prestigious as the Spanish one.
De Jong does not see with bad eyes to continue in LaLiga Santander and hand in hand with Atlético
According to sources close to the striker’s environment, De Jong wants to stay in LaLiga Santander, and for this reason he would have rejected offers from Turkey and his country. The striker’s priority is to stay in the European elite and what better than in one of the most successful and historic teams like Atlético.
The Dutch striker has a contract with Sevilla FC until 2023, and this market would be ideal to execute his departure to obtain some figure as a profit. The 31-year-old footballer is valued at 4 million euros, but the Madrid team would only pay a maximum of 2 kilos. Monchi knows that they cannot aspire to much, given the player’s current performance.
