With this horizon, Atletico de Madrid is already combing the market for a worthy substitute & replacement. The profile is obviously a goal square "killer" & striker that can guarantee goals.
There are three candidates doing the rumour circuit at this moment:
- Jackson Martinez 26 year old player from Porto. Price around 25-30M€ but with contract until 2016. Strong, good with both feet & good heading
- Edin Dzeko forward from Manchester City. Price around 25-30M€. Proven & experienced forward capable of occupying the defender to create spaces & good with both feet.
- But the current hot favourite is Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz. The player has contract until 2016 & costs more, around 30-40M€. The player is in the orbit of top Football Player representative Jorge Mendes ( same as Falcao, Cristiano Ronaldo ...) which has excellent relations with Atletico de Madrid. Yilmaz is currently exploding onto the European Football scene.
Stay tuned for further developments in coming weeks.
