Atletico Madrid are the latest club to be reported to have their eyes set on the Serbia should Ernesto Valverde stick to his guns of choosing Frankie de Jong and Artur over the midfield veteran.

They are absolutely ready to Sign-In Rodrigo who is a well known forward from Valencia, according to Marca. As the 28-year-old missed out on his training, it has been finalized that he is set to join the team Atletico Madrid. The deal has been made between Madrid and him for 60 million Euros.

Though his destinations are not known by all, plenty of his mates at Valencia also believe that he was thinking of moving and assured it weeks before.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone said that he wants to focus on football rather than speculating on transfer news. He said that for as long as the January transfer window remains open, there will be plenty of speculation about possible transfers.

Spanish football powerhouse Atletico Madrid are increasingly set to lose their star player Antoine Griezmann, as per reports. Despite the France international helping them to another Europa League title win, there is a strong possibility that the 27-year old will exit the La Liga side this summer.
Coach Diego Simeone says he is happy with whatever decision the player makes. Fernando Torres has gotten his farewell and is set to end his stay at the club while two other attackers were shipped out in January. With Diego Costa still at the club, and Atletico having options, they could still manage if Griezmann left even though it would surely hurt them.
Spanish side Atletico Madrid have asked their former striker and recent acquisition target Diego Costa to return to England.
The club wanted to sign the player from his current side Chelsea but the talks broke down and the deadline ended.
The club is serving a transfer ban but they made moves to bring him back to the La Liga with the plan to send him elsewhere on a loan deal for the first half of the season. Following the issues with Coach Antonio Conte, Costa would likely train with the development squad until they can find a buyer for him in January.
Chelsea want full £50 million for the Spaniard but Atletico Madrid are offering around £40 million. The Rojiblancos hope Costa settles with his current employers so they can sanction a deal in January at more favourable terms.
The two-time Premier League winner feels unjustly treated by Conte and the club. Costa feels he played a huge part in the recent success of the west London side and deserves better treatment. He was in South America recently while the rest of the team had resumed training following his fall out with Conte. Read More
