But, as many things in Football, things have changed since last summer and the return of Diego Ribas to Atletico has again become a real possibility. The circumstances this time play in favour of Atletico, the player ends his current contract the 30th of June 2014, which forces the German Club to seriously consider a transfer this upcoming summer or else the player goes free the 1st of January 2014.
One supposes that talks will advance & that the negotiations will be difficult. Wolfsburg will want to maximize their gains & Atletico will want the player to lower his salary pretensions, another difficult endeavour as the past show that with Diego Ribas it is complicated. We will eventually see how much Diego really misses Atletico de Madrid.
