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.
He said that this is normal as there are so many quality players at Atletico Madrid at the moment and it is normal that big clubs will want to attract them. He said that he will have to work with that and make sure that they focus on their football as well.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said that he is proud of his players despite their defeat against Borussia Dortmund. He said that his team has played better than in their previous games despite a 4-0 defeat in Germany.
The Atletico Madrid boss said that sometimes football can be really strange and that this is what happened in the Champions League match. He said that his team played better than in the game which they drew against Sevilla and still they were hammered by Borussia Dortmund.
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
All tabloids have been going agog trying to come up with the hottest clickable links associated with the current best player in the world – Cristiano Ronaldo after he lashed out at the administrative wing of the Galaticos.
The most shocking part of this news though is the speed and manner even reputable news outlets have bought into the Portugal captain’s cryptic cry for help.
For a start, hindsight tells us that players generally develop a leaky mouth once they are outside the confines of their professional clubs. On top of that is the way most players use national calls as an avenue to voice out opinions the media attached to their clubs would never be allowed to air.
A player as brilliant as Ronaldo know all too well that no club in the whole world come close in terms of providing a relatively stress free platform thoroughly made for his sole flourish than Real Madrid. Read More

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has said that the club should forget their chase of Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale, at least in the near future.
Bale left the Premier League for a record fee of £85 million in the summer of 2013. However, Premier League sides have resumed spending record money in markets so they are hoping to lure Bale back.
The 27-year old has been linked with a return to England but to play at Old Trafford. He signed a deal last year that ties him to Santiago Bernabeu until 2022 but reports still linked him with a move away from Madrid.
“He looks happy at Real Madrid. I don’t think he’s going anywhere at the moment. From a fan’s point of view, it would be great to see him back in the Premier League. The United fans would love to see him at Old Trafford.
“You talk about the big clubs and United is up there. While he’s happy there, I can’t see him leaving,” Giggs opined. Read More
Fluminense have extended the contract of goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri by an additional year.
The current contract of the former Liverpool goalkeeper was set to end in the summer of 2018. Now, he will remain at the Brazilian outfit at least until 2019. Cavalieri returned to Brazilian football in 2011 after failing to establish himself as a first-team regular in European football. The 34-year-old went from a promising goalkeeper in the Palmeiras team straight to the Liverpool squad. Regarded as one of the biggest clubs in European football, the move to Anfield hindered the ability of the player to grow since he was largely a backup to then-first choice Pepe Reina.
As a result, he decided to join Italian outfit Cesena in 2010 on a free transfer. He spent only one season in Italy before being drawn back to Brazilian football with Fluminense. Cavalieri has become one of the reliable players for the Brazilian outfit so much so that they have decided to extend the contract of the player even though he is 34. Read More
