Rumour: Alvaro Recoba

Posted by atleti on August 13, 2007

Hm, according to this article, Atleti are interested in signing 31 year old playmaker, Alvaro Recoba. Inter Milan are ready to unload their veteran player this summer. His future at the club has been in doubt for several months now. He was previously linked to Atletico, several months ago, but that rumour disappeared rather quickly. It has resurfaced on Goal.Com today, but I can’t find any other source on it (at least not today). I’ve checked AS, MARCA, Sky Sports, Gazzetta.

I suppose that now that Riquelme will return to Villarreal, the club are still in search for a playmaker. I’m not so sure Recoba is the answer. He’s rather injury-prone and I’d hate to see the club shell out big bucks for a player who might spend more time sidelined than on the pitch.
