A skinny dog, everything is fleas. And at Atlético de Madrid they do not stop accumulating problems, because they leave one and get into another . It was already anticipated that this season would not be easy, with the departure of pillars such as Antoine Griezmann, Filipe Luis, Juanfran Torres, Diego Godín or Rodrigo Hernández. But neither did they imagine that it would be so dire.
Because they no longer compete for any title, and were eliminated by a set of Second Division B of Copa del Rey. In the Santander League, they run the risk of staying out of the first four for the first time for many years, and in the Champions League many people already consider them eliminated, as they face the favorite and current champion, Liverpool de Jürgen Klopp, in the round of 16.
Many players are very unhappy with their situation and with Diego Pablo Simeone. Joao Félix, Thomas Partey, Vitolo, Thomas Lemar ... but, without a doubt, one of the most disappointed and disappointed is Saúl Ñíguez , who has been a key player in the recent successes of the club, and who has always shown his commitment to the mattress entity, of which he is a canterano and faithful follower.
And he has shown his love for colors and the shield by rejecting very lucrative offers from an economic and sporting point of view . He was happy in the Wanda Metropolitano, even though he didn't earn much money, nor could he be promised titles every year. But now he doesn't enjoy it, since they go from ridiculous to ridiculous, and he doesn't even feel comfortable in the country anymore.
He thinks he is getting involved because of the 'Cholo', which he has even used on the left-handed side. And he plans to change airs in summer, being Barça, who has a preferential option for him and has already tried his signing in the past, his favorite destination.
But its price will not be cheap ...
