According to AS, Diego Simeone has given his Atletico management one task this summer. Atletico is asked to bringing him Thiago Almada, a young offensive midfielder of Velez whom Argentina media call the good Juan Roman Riquelme’s successor.
Thiago Almada has entered and is getting closer and closer to Atlético de Madrid’s orbit. The management of sports, under Andrea Berta’s command, doesn’t lose track. The club’s financial condition, within the air, thanks to the coronavirus crisis, makes it very hard to guess when the season’s signings coming.
The 19-year-old, however, is seen as a choice that will produce both sporting and economic returns for the club.
Almada may be a 19-year-old midfielder of offensive who has been a neighborhood of Argentina cult community for ten years. He joined the seniors of his club two years ago after a younger generation and has become a starter and their key player soon.
It’ll be neither easy nor cheap to urge. Velez, who is facing a fresh and exciting project at the bench with Mauricio Pellegrino, wants to retain his young star. Last September he extended his contract until 2023, with a time-increasing termination clause. It started at 19 million but is 22 million at the instant. If no club decides to shop for it on the subsequent market, it’ll build up to 25 million from 31 August.
They are telling this newspaper from the Buenos Aires team that they need no intention of negotiating. “Pay the supply to whosoever loves Almada,” they say. they’re persuaded that the inside is an adult gem which it’s not an exorbitant quality because it’ll cost even more as soon because it makes the jump to Europe.
The 19-year-old midfielder has accrued 25 appearances, five goals, and two assists altogether Almada competitions this season, and is currently a member of Argentina U-20 team he has played seven games (one hit) for.
Simeone is pleased with the young player so Atletico’s management sent a €22 million official bid.
