Simeone has already expressed his concerns about the possible departure of key players from Atlético de Madrid and now we have learned that Carrasco is the first to leave the club
All summer long, rojiblanco club Samu Lino locked the exit door because he knew he could lose a very important player. Now this is becoming a reality, because Atlético is close to finalizing the sale of Carrasco. A very painful sale for the club as the Belgian played a key role in Simeone’s plans.
He has played a very important role in the team since his return to the club and has been one of the team’s standout players this season. However, Carrasco wants to leave Atlético de Madrid, because he has an irresistible offer. An offer that, how could it be otherwise, comes from Saudi Arabia.
Carrasco’s days at Atlético are numbered
It’s been several weeks now From Saudi Arabia they contacted Carrasco to find out their predisposition to set a course for Saudi Arabia. However, given his importance to the side and the fact that the transfer market was about to end, everything seemed to indicate he was a ruled out option.
But in the last few hours everything has changed, well Carrasco is about to leave Atlético. A very painful sale for the club and especially for Simeone who will lose one of his untouchables in the team. Now everything is in the hands of the sports management, who have to compete against the clock to find a replacement.
The Portuguese winger who was contacted by Atlético
Given his sudden departure just hours before the transfer market closed, Atlético de Madrid are interested in Pedro Gonçalves. He is a 25-year-old Portuguese footballer who has been at his best for several years at Sporting Lisbon, where he has become one of the most outstanding players in the championship.
Now, It’s Atlético knocking on his door to replace Carrasco. But it won’t be a simple operation by any means as the footballer just renewed his contract a few days ago. In addition, a termination clause of 80 million euros is set, which is unaffordable for the rojiblanco club as they will look for other options on the market in the event of their signing being foreclosed.
