Personally I think it is an exaggeration to pay 35M€ for Falcao & 10M€ for the Portuguese International midfielder Micael who is a substitute in the Oporto squad. Having said this , Atletico does need a creative midfielder & with Brazilian Diego of Wolfsburg getting complicated & messy one supposes that the Spanish Football Club sees it all as a solution.
Therefore , stay tuned for the official Club announcements - if nothing goes wrong - in the next hours or days.
Staying with Atletico another rumoured transfer possibility OSVALDO from RCD ESPANYOL has gone cold again with AC ROMA returning as firm candidates, while DIEGO FORLAN does not wish to move from Atletico UNTIL he gets his 4M€ which is owned to him by the Club.
Stay tuned for developments in theses open fronts as they depend on "moves" from external factors happening in a chain-reaction which is taking its time & is frustrating some of the players involved (Read :ATLETICO DE MADRID | FALCAO - DIEGO FORLAN - OSVALDO | THE DOMINO THEORY)
Lastly, while I´m posting & it has nothing to do with Atletico, Spanish Football Club GETAFE has announced the signing of ex Spanish International & FERNANBACHE forward DANI GUIZA.
LATEST: Its official FALCAO signs for Atletico de Madrid for 40M€ + Micael 5M€ (will be loaned to Zaragoza) . Crazy & inflated prices if you ask me, makes me wonder who takes the commissions...no it doesn't really...
