- After saying goodbye to Chelsea, his future is one of the issues to be discussed at the offices of Atlético de Madrid in this summer market
- The club wants to find an accommodation for him to have a gap in its wage bill for Carlos Soler
- The Sevilla coach with whom he has a great relationship would welcome the arrival of the man from Elche
There have been few movements in the first weeks of the transfer market. In the offices of Atlético de Madrid they are already working with a marked roadmap. In the first place, try to make money with the sale of some players and, on the other hand, try to accommodate others so that the salary limit allows them to include the new footballers that Diego Pablo Simeone has requested : a right back, a center forward and a defensive midfielder. . In this way, one of the players whose future is on the table is Saúl Ñíguez .
The player said goodbye to Chelsea on Tuesday , in which he has already announced that he will not continue through a statement in which he made an assessment of the season. “I am writing to say goodbye to you. Thank you to all the fans for supporting me through thick and thin. I will be eternally grateful. Thanks to the entire squad for making it possible for me to win titles with the blue shirt, ”he said in part of the message.
The next step seemed clear that it was his return to Atlético de Madrid . The player has a contract until 2026. However, the club would not look badly on his departure to be able to make room for Carlos Soler in the salary limit as they have advanced in different media. That coupled with the fact that the player’s return to the locker room would not be easy after his departure last season. That is why the club are looking for a new destination for him in the form of a loan or transfer. Something that is not easy after his last two seasons in which he has not lived up to his quality.
As MD has learned, one of the possible destinations for the midfielder from Elche is Sevilla . Club to which in principle he would go on loan. Julen Lopetegui really likes the Elche game and they are also joined by a good friendship. In fact, the coach made him debut on his day with the absolute Spanish National Team when he was 22 years old. Previously, he had followed his entire career in the lower Red teams in which he has always been indisputable.
To this we must add that he would share a dressing room with Óliver Torres , a footballer of the same generation and with whom he has spent many stages in the lower categories of Atlético de Madrid .
So from their environment they see Sevilla as a good option . A destination in which the footballer recovers his football. A campaign in his country, in a League that he knows and with a coach who already knows how to get the most out of it, and above all who fully trusts the player.
