Atletico Madrid: Transfer Rumours & Updates

Posted by atleti on August 9, 2007

With giant striker Nikola Zigic on his way to Valencia, Racing Santander are on the lookout for a new striker. Who do they have in mind? Atleti’s Mista. With his position as 3rd choice striker in doubt– not to mention his poor form at the moment– Mista should consider a move out of the club. He has told the press that he would like to stay and fight for his place in the squad, but with the likes of Forlán, Aguero, and young Braulio, it seems unrealistic.

If an agreement between the two clubs cannot be reached, sources report that Racing might offer 24 year old midfielder Víctor Javier Añino Bermúdez (more commonly known as “Vitolo”).

Meanwhile, AS reports that Brasilian striker Diego Costa is on his way out of the club for the season with a move to the Russian League likely. I’ve mentioned this before here— Diego Costa, crucially,  doesn’t have a Euro-Passport.

In the same article, Costinha is also mentioned to be leaving the club. Again, no shocker there. Beyond that, no futher information is provided.

    Love your blog, I’m an LFC fan in England and Atletico are my second team (similar histories/things in common). Judging by your new signings the loss of Torres won’t be that much of a blow, and you have our very own Luis Garcia now :)

    Anyway, keep up the blogging because it keeps me in touch with the club a lot more than the official site or various footy forums. Hoping El Nino makes his debut for us tomorrow and manages to bang a couple away as well!!!

    Excellent; I’m glad you check out the blog! My goal is to grab the attention of non-Spanish speakers who want to track the clubs progress without having to go to all these different sources!

    Best of luck to El Niño!! I hope he has a good first season with Liverpool.
