The Waiting Game

Posted by atleti on July 2, 2007

Atlético Madrid have been strongly linked with quite a few players recently. By ‘strongly linked’ I mean that they are apparently near to signing for the club. I don’t want to jump the gun and write thoughts on them until the deals have been finalized.

If you’ve missed any of the news thus far, here’s a brief list of players linked to the club:

Ricardo Quaresma
The talented OPorto midfielder has been a transfer target of Atleti for quite some time. According to AS, he is expected to join the club soon– as in within the week.

Luis Garcia
29 year old Anfield favourite is expected to return to Atletico Madrid as part of the deal involving Torres.
CONFIRMED 3-July (source: Atletico Madrid and Sky Sports). He has joined club on a three-year contract for about 4 million.

Juan Roman Riquelme
I expected the rumour of Riquelme-to-Atleti to come true when Forlan was officially announced as a new rojiblanco. I can sing the praises of Riquelme all day- but I won’t, since it’s still unclear about whether he’ll join the club. Of course, if he does accept a move to Atleti, he will join fellow countrymen Maxi Rodriguez and Sergio Kun Aguero.

All in all, all three would be excellent additions to the midfield, but again, I don’t want to jump the gun. I will wait (albeit impatiently) until these rumours become realities, if all goes well.
