Koke reappeared and relapsed almost at the same time in the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup; he was waiting for the derby with Madrid next Saturday, but he has advanced his return. For Vrsaljko, however, it could be his first minutes after more than a year standing still. On January 13, 2019 he played for the last time with Inter, before being operated on the knee. In summer he returned to Atlético and has been getting ready with the group for several months.On the other hand, and As in the previous five games so far in 2020, Simeone will not be able to count on Lemar. In the previous ones the reason was a muscle injury (hamstring), but now that he has recovered and had been able to train several days with his teammates, what he has left out is a gastroenteritis. This Saturday he did not work with the group and stayed at home recovering. He will not play against Leganés, which could have been the game of his farewell to Atlético. That is, it is possible that he leaves without saying goodbye, leaving the visit to Betis in December as his last participation of rojiblanco. Less than a week before the market closes, Lemar’s name is marked in red as one of the possible exits. Arsenal loves him and, as reported Monte Carlo radio, the London club already has started conversations with the soccer player, although the positions would still be far away. That said, all parties have only a few days to reach an agreement, either in the form of assignment or transfer. Beyond the team gunner, It is in the Premier where Lemar has more market and where it is most likely to end.The midfielder, 24, has played 21 games so far this season and has not had the explosion that was expected after a first course of adaptation. For example, you have not contributed neither a goal nor an assist. And the fans run out of patience with who is the second most expensive signing ever of Atlético, surpassed by João Félix only.Giménez, Costa and Arias, in nursingThey stay again besides Giménez and Diego Costa, that is lost what could have been his farewell to Atlético, if his departure in this winter market is finally consummated.

The biggest doubts have arisen after the derby. The herculinos they didn’t suffer much, but they barely had chances and for the first time in the ‘Vázquez era’ the team it remained unmarked. Sabin Merino, who saw the door in his first four games, has three blank. The downturn also coincides with the injury of Somma (Girona). Peru, that formed a perfect couple with Gaku in the middle, You must play central now, something the team is noticing.January signings still find no placeThe Deportivo was the Second team what more moved in the winter market with seven hires and six departures. However, only two of the signings January they are taking center stage with Fernando Vázquez. Is about Sabin Merino and Emre Çolak, both fixed in the eleven holder of Castrofeito. The presence of the other five players who arrived last month to the blue and white team is almost testimonial. Jovanovic, substitute goalkeeper, hasn’t debuted yet. Keko Gontán has not started and has 45 minutes in two games while Hugo Vallejo has been 50 ‘in three games. Uche Agbo entered the eleven against Albacete as soon as he arrived, but did not play again until Sunday in the derby (61 ’). Beauvue was injured in his second encounter and reappeared against him Lugo to accumulate 44 minutes. Fernando Vázquez is starring a true miracle in front of the Sports. The Galician coach took the team in January as a showman to seven points of salvation and is currently out of the relegation with a two point mattress. Its performance is so good that the people of Coruña have gone from evicted to leaders of thesecond roundCastrofeito’s plan to rescue Depor was based on a railroad five defense, give the ball to find cons and squeeze the stopped ball. The bet worked like a signing roller six wins in a row, but the formula starts to give symptoms of exhaustion After a full 18 points of 18, the Depor has only added two of the last nine to accumulate two draws in a row in Riazor (Girona and Lugo) and a defeat in Saragossa.
Jose Luis Gayà, who will be 25 in May, lives his sixth season in the Valencia squad. Pedreguer’s winger, who came to the Black and White Academy at the age of 11, He already has 223 official matches on his legs with the Valencia shirt, a team that is also one of the captains. Gayà represents the feeling of belonging in the dressing room and the club wants him to represent him for life. Therefore, Valencia, As reported by SER, it intends to extend the contract in the coming months. Gayà, who has demonstrated his commitment in multiple transfer markets, will have an almost life-long contract on his table. Its clause is 100 million, although the amount is the least because Gayà has always refused to listen to offers from third parties. The winger plays for the club where he always wanted to and his wish would be to become what in England is known as a ‘one club men’, a man from a single club. Or at least be during his best years of professional football. Valencia (also the footballer) wants Gayà to follow in the wake of illustrious black and white youth squads like Fernando Gómez Colomer (553 official matches, 15 seasons in the first team), Ricardo Arias (521 matches, 16 seasons) or David Albelda (485 matches, 15 seasons). Gayà is currently the second footballer in the Valencia squad who has played the team for the longest years and the most. He is only surpassed by Parejo, who is in his 90th season and has entered the top-10 of footballers with the most games (373). Gayà knows this and he also wants to, although there is no hurry (he has a contract until 2023) and they will sit down to negotiate once the Covid-19 crisis has passed, which directly affects him as one of the footballers of the Valencia squad that has confirmed its infected.
Manchester United failed to convince Erling Haaland last January. The English leaders rejected from the first moment to include a termination clause in their contract since it would give too much power to Mino Raiola, the soccer player’s agent, in the future of the Norwegian and finally ended up choosing Borussia Dortmund.After 12 goals in 11 games and a spectacular start after playing for RB Salzsburg, Haaland’s numbers in Germany have placed him as one of the most coveted pieces in European football. In Dortmund they hope to have Haaland for at least one more season, but Manchester United is ready to return to the charge, as published by ESPN. If Real Madrid push for Haaland, so will the Red Devils for the second time. But Borussia Dortmund do not want to lose their two most valued footballers in the same transfer market. In the equation on the future of Haaland also enters the situation of Jadon Sancho, the other pearl of Dortmund, who has plenty of suitors from this summer. Manchester United will also bid for the Englishman, whose price will exceed 100 million euros, because they see Sancho as the emblematic footballer they need in their squad.

Others at the club understand that it will finally renew. It is not easy to leave Atlético to succeed in other teams. Simeone usually get the most out of his footballers. There are recent examples of players who left and did not succeed where they left. Thomas is now a basic player for Cholo, he has gained experience and stripes. He seems ready to make the jump to other teams, to other championships, but this carries a risk. Just in case, at Atlético they have always sent very positive messages to Marcos Llorente. Now that thanks to his two goals at Anfield he is a hero and before, when he didn’t play much. Marcos Llorente is called to play in that anchor position for Thomas, although he is performing very well on the right wing. We will see in which of the two positions Cholo places him in the future.Atlético will go through a difficult economic position of not qualifying for the Champions League. The economic hole will be important and the sale of a footballer could be the solution to their problems. When it is known if the team plays Champions or not, it will be possible to guess which will be the direction taken by the sports management. The words of Thomas’s father and the subsequent responses of the footballer do not leave him in a very good place.Atlético had to sell to very important players. De Gea, Agüero, Falcao, Griezmann left … It seemed then that the club was going to disappear and it has not been like that. Other pieces arrived and Simeone managed to get the team up, sometimes playing well and others boring until saying enough. But fighting for titles. And with Thomas or without Thomas, the same will happen. Because Cholo has achieved one thing above all: that Atlético is a team. Thomas can become the soap opera of the summer at Atlético. The situation of the Ghanaian midfielder is giving a lot to talk about in recent days with the protests of his father, on the one hand, and the subsequent response of the footballer, on the other hand. And they haven’t gone on the same direction. While the father, as it is clear from his words, would look favorably on a possible departure from Atlético, the footballer denies everything and ensures that there is no contact with other clubs. The Madrid club, meanwhile, has been waiting for months for a positive response from the footballer to renew. It remains to be seen if this soap opera gives for many more chapters over the coming weeks and months.. Manchester United and Arsenal await the Atlético player.Thomas has a long-standing Atlético renewal offer. Offer that doubles his salary and also his withdrawal clause, of 50 million euros. In the club there are different opinions: some understand that if Thomas has not renewed it is because he does not have much interest in doing so. At 26 years old (in June he will be 27), he is at the best moment of his career. His contract with Atlético is until June 2023 and the club has already moved to try to tie him for more seasons. But the player has not yet said yes. In his statements, he has never said categorically that he will continue, although neither has he left.
