The first name that many see out of the Club is DIEGO FORLAN. As mentioned in the below post, Turkish side Besiktas & English Premier League Club Tottenham Hotspurs are knocking hard on his door. However, today the player "surprisingly" says that he wishes to stay next season at Atletico. I personally don´t see it.
|Spanish Football Atletico de Madrid star Aguero|
The persistent rumour that just will not go away is the SERGIO AGUERO & REAL MADRID "connection". The player has said that he is happy at Atletico may a time, but has never shut the exit door either with his comments. In fact, a "dirty & vicious" rumour says that the player has told the Club to listen to offers if they arrive these coming months. The Club always mentions that Aguero has a 45M€ contract release clause which includes a 18% VAT to add on top.
Two Clubs are said to by "hoovering" over the Club in reference to the Aguero situation. The first is English Club MANCHESTER CITY looking for a "crack" for its Champions League campaign & the second is REAL MADRID that has been looking at Aguero for months. The latter does not wish to pay the extra 18% VAT, plus Atletico will face fan riots if the "enemy" was to "steal" the crown jewel. But Real Madrid may "throw" in a couple of players ( with €€€€ ) to ease the pain. This last rumour is gaining strenght locally, BUT IT IS ONLY A RUMOUR.
What is "red hot" is the story-gossip that young goalkeeper DAVID DE GEA will be heading to MANCHESTER UNITED next season. The rumour is gaining size & speed just like a snow-ball rolling downhill. The player has not denied anything & has literally said that a decision will be made at the end of the season.
Three heavyweight players which includes two prized assets that may lead to the burning down of the stadium by fans if they do finally leave Atletico. As I had said, they are rumours & not verified 100%, so if your an Atletico fan please remain calm. Nervous but calm for the moment.
