João Félix and Morata get on the plane

Atlético leaves at 8:00 p.m. for Seoul (South Korea) and João Félix and Morata will be on that plane. His presence has been the great unknown in recent days, as both have been looking for a way out that, for the moment, does not occur. That is why they have entered the call for the tour and will be part of the four friendlies that the team has ahead of them. A call in which neither Nahuel nor Giménez are in, after suffering injuries in this morning’s session, the first with a soleus injury and the second with a fissure in the tibia. Total, Simeone takes 27 footballers. The other novelty is Riquelme, incorporated just in time to be one of the expedition.

This does not mean that João Félix and Morata will continue at Atlético, nor the contrary. The Spanish striker keep listening to the proposals that come from Italy, where no team (neither Inter, nor Rome, nor Juve, nor Milan…) is capable of satisfying what the Madrid club is asking for. The Arabian route is there, but it does not finish convincing the player. But the entity is aware of the professionalism of the striker and his involvement in the tour is total. João Félix, for his part, also tried to speed up his case during the last weekagain without success. His declaration of love to Barça did not take effect, at least immediately, and there are still no offers for him. Apparently in training, it does not enter Simeone’s plans either, but He will also be seen in friendlies with a new number.

To that plane with two unexpected headline casualties, Giménez and Nahuel, some touched players also get on. Barrios is almost recovered from the injury he suffered in Segovia, but Nahuel missed this Monday’s session due to some discomfort and Carrasco has been doing alternative work for days. Reinildo continues to recover from his serious knee injury. To complete the expedition, Cholo takes four of the homegrown players with whom he has been counting since the preseason began: Gomís, Kostis, Gismera and Carlos Martín, whom the coach has been testing as a winger.

The team arrives in Seoul on Tuesday to start preparing for this week’s two friendlies in the Korean capital: on Thursday, against Team-K, a selection from the local league; and on Sunday, against Manchester City, both at 1:00 p.m., Spanish time. Later, in the early morning from August 2 to 3 (3:00), they will face off against Real Sociedad in Monterrey (Mexico) and the night from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 (04:00), with Sevilla in San Francisco (United States).
