|Atletico de Madrid player Sergio Aguero|
The Atletico de Madrid Directives, especially the Director General Gil Marin ( the real owner with 80% of shares) & Club President Enrique Cerezo ( 20% shares) are claiming publicly that the player is not on sale & that if any team wishes to take him away that they pay his release clause of 45M€ plus VAT of 18%. It is "vox populi" that both Gil Marin & Cerezo do not communicate with each other & this is tearing up the Club, but both are jointly saying that Aguero will not go, under any circumstances, to REAL MADRID.
An obvious message as the fan base is on the verge of a total revolution as they see the team disintegrate. Coach Quique Sanchez Flores leaves along with Diego Forlan, plus it looks like the Club hero Aguero cannot be stopped either, plus to added to the fire, reports place goalkeeper De Gea in Manchester United. The Atletico de Madrid Directives have hardly been known to say the "truth" & have to figure out how to come across to the fans as the "good guys" in all this crisis.
In reference to SERGIO AGUERO, the news is mixed & not clear to which Club he will end up at next season. There are three clear names & all three in Champions League next season: MANCHESTER CITY, CHELSEA FC & REAL MADRID CF. The first has gained strenght in these last days, especially if Real Madrid does not wish to pay the full release clause with VAT included & also wished to avoid a "war" with its neighbour. Atletico insists that Aguero will go anywhere ( if agreed) expect to the local "enemy".
Said this, there are still reports, gossip & rumours surfacing daily that REAL MADRID is the final destination & has been for months.
Stay tuned for developments, as the only thing that is certain is that the Atletico de Madrid insignia will not continue next year after 5 glorious years at the Club.
