Hojbjerg, slow but closer

While Atlético continues trying to clarify the chapter on departurescontinues to work on the signing of 5, the first position to shore up in the squad after the departure of Kondogbia. And, in that sense, priority is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 27-year-old Danish footballer for Tottenham. Sami Mokbel, a journalist for the Daily Mail, announced yesterday morning progress in the talks between the two clubs. That the English, commanded by Daniel Levy, always rocky and difficult in negotiations, is beginning to soften. “Although these will continue to be slow,” she specified.

Soften up after receiving a second offer for the footballer last Saturday from the offices of the Metropolitan. The starting price on Levy’s head to open the door for the footballer is around 40 million. His market value at Transfermarkt already exceeds them, with a figure of 45.

Soften to the point that the London club have already started combing the market looking for possible replacements from Hojbjerg. One would be Douglas Luiz, 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder for Aston Villa. The other, Conor Gallagher, from Chelsea, 23 years old. And there is a third and it is Galician: Gabri Veiga, from Celta de Vigo, 21 years. Sami Mokbel also informed him that Hojbjerg would have started looking for a house in Madrid, before his imminent transfer to the Spanish capital, although the negotiations are still piano-piano and slow. Information, by the way, echoed on Twitter by the @AtletiFrancia account (with 72,200 followers) and which had a Like from one of the players from the Cholo squad: Antoine Griezmann.

In Australia… and looking for a house in Madrid

Hojbjerg is currently in Australia with his Tottenham Hotspur teammates for the Spurs’ pre-season tour and is the one desired by Cholo and the rojiblanco club, the first option to reinforce the midfield. Simeone’s ambition was to speed up these negotiations and try to have that transfer resolved before his team left on their own tour., the one that begins on Monday and will last two weeks: Atlético will go around the world (South Korea-San Francisco-Mexico). He will not return to Madrid until August 6, a week before the start of the League.

And to Cholo, just like he closed all the defense incorporations before the week in San Rafael where the tactical concepts are fixed and physiques of the season, he likes being able to work with all the footballers he will have as soon as possible. Everyone, or almost everyone, must pass their military service and, the sooner, the better. But if the exits become blocked, the arrivals are also blocked. The rojiblanco club, which last week transferred Lodi to Marseille, is looking for outlets for Lemar and Lino. For Hojbjerg to arrive. Slow, but closer.
