ATLETICO DE MADRID NEWS | IN SEARCH OF A NEW STRIKER

With Atletico de Madrid without its forward Radamel Falcao who signed yesterday with French Club Monaco, the "race" is on to find a worthy substitute that can get the goals needed for an ambitious new season coming up with Champions League included.

Although the Club has received an important injection of cash with the transfer of Falcao, most of the money will go to the Spanish Tax office as Atletico still has a lot of debt within its financial structure & this limits their ability in getting the desired striker.

At this moment there are three names being handled by Atletico de Madrid:

  • Luis Suarez ( Liverpool FC ) . The most desired,  but his price tag of around 45M€ makes the player difficult to consider, Atletico is looking to find the extra cash. Also local neighbour Real Madrid is also in the picture & the player may decide to go over to Real which has the resources.
  • Jackson Martinez ( Porto ) . The Colombian is an option that likes at the Atletico de Madrid offices. However, once again the price tag, 40M€ & Porto are fierce negotiators that will not lower their price.
  • Damaio (Porto Alegre ). The 23 year old Brazilian is another sensation in Brazil in the Neymar line. The 30M€ price tag may make the player a more viable option.
Latest news is that AC Roma player Osvaldo has "offered himself" to the Spanish Football Club for study & consideration.

There will be more news in coming days & weeks as negotiations take off & the money talk begins. Stay tuned!
