The Atletico Madrid He has not been satisfied with the recent season, and it is that the mattress team expected to play in LaLiga, although in the end it was very far from Real Madrid, current champion of the competition, who ended up taking the trophy with great solvency. The high expectations, after a great signing like Rodrigo De Paul and with a team with players of the stature of Oblak, Lemar, Luis Suárez, Joao Félix or Yannick Carrasco, were cut short by a disappointing start and a team made to play to a football totally different from the one practiced by Cholo Simeone. Thus, Atlético de Madrid has ended up burned in a season in which, despite everything, they have finished third in LaLiga.
Kieran Trippier’s departure in winter to head to Newcastle did a lot of damage to the mattress team, who had to sign Daniel Wass to cover the position. However, it was Sime Vrsaljko the one who, finally, had to take his place, since the Danish’s poor performance and injuries have made him one of the more than possible sales of the rojiblanco team, and that is that Cholo Simeone does not have him for the next season. The Atléticos, still with no movements in sight in the transfer market, will have to incorporate a right back because, despite the fact that the Croatian defender has filled the position, he is very close to leaving the Madrid team after ending his contract with the Wanda club Metropolitan.
Vrsaljko, about to sign for Olympiacos
According to recent information from ‘Relief’, Vrsaljko is very close to signing his departure from Atlético de Madrid to move to Olympiacos, where he will arrive for free as a free agent. According to the aforementioned media, unless something goes wrong, the Croatian’s signing will be announced in the next few days or perhaps in the next few hours. In this way, Vrsaljko’s departure from Atlético de Madrid is confirmed, joining those of Luis Suárez and Héctor Herrera.
