The profit margin achieved by the Madrid club in relation to purchases and sales in this summer market was around 80% and the manager naturally requires this to be spent on the winter window of the other year.
This summer sale has been very busy for Atlético de Madrid as more than 20 stores have been closed in the meantime departures And signings towards Diego Simeone’s team. Specifically, the Argentine coach received three new players (Javi Galán, César Azpilicueta and Caglar Söyüncü). Since then, the other signings such as Santiago Mouriño and Samu Omorodion have been loaned out.
In general, Atlético recorded more departures than signings, with Matheus Cunha benefiting the most (€50m). And that from Joao Félix on loan, which gives the salary mass financial relief. But in short, the balance that this market has left the mattress team, It’s a net gain of €79m, which Simeone has already claimed for investing in a player.
The €79m win could go towards signing Lautaro Martínez as requested by Atlético coach Diego Simeone
With the perfect alibi made by the gaucho coach (the fact that he’s only received three signings), he has applied for Lautaro Martínez to be hired. El Cholo knows that the sports director cannot reject the application on the grounds that there is no money. For this reason he rightly invokes the Presidency General under the command of Enrique Cerezo.
The advantage in this market is that Álvaro Morata ended up not moving to Serie A where he was wanted by AC Milan and his former team Juventus. But that doesn’t mean the danger of absconding is over. In 2024, the Madrid man can continue his plan to return to Italy and the signing of the Argentinian striker, who is now at Inter, fits the bill.
With the money Atlético have made in this market, is Lautaro’s signing enough? Simeone says “Yes”
The commitment of the gaucho attacker is very likely to be classified as a real bargain. The basic price is currently 85 million euros and is linked to a contract until 2026. But here lies the advantage of the rojiblanco team, namely that the player clause is below that 85 kilos.
Specifically, Atlético has to pay 70 million euros so as not to have to negotiate with the Nerazzurri team. But first Andrea Berta must convince Lautaro Martínez of Diego Simeone’s project aimed at winning the Champions League. That will depend on the performance of the Madrid club in this group stage.
