Valentín Barco is Atlético’s secret target for January

The Argentine coach has tried several players in this position, including Lodi, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo, Carrasco, Samu Lino or even Riquelme, but none of them have fully established themselves.

This footballer is a complete unknown to many. So far he has not left Argentine football, having spent his entire short career with Boca Juniors and the lower categories. But even though it doesn’t enjoy much media attention, Atlético de Madrid have been following Valentin Barco for some time.
