The Atlético de Madrid has decided to give in to Juan Manuel Sanabria to the Athletic San Luis, its ‘subsidiary’ in the Mexican league, as the mattress club itself announced today on its website. From the Metropolitan they wanted to prioritize that the Uruguayan, 21, had minutes in a new assignment and finally the team from Potosí has been chosen.
The midfielder spent the second part of the season on loan at the Real Zaragoza, where he played 13 games, scoring one goal. The club wanted to continue counting on him, but Atlético was looking for a team in which Sanabria would play practically everything.
The Uruguayan arrived at Atlético three years ago, in the summer of 2018, and soon began to carve a niche in the daily training of the first team. He played several friendlies under the orders of Simeone, like the historic derby in New Jersey that ended 3-7 for the rojiblancos, but its official premiere was in January of this year, in the Copa del Rey against the Cardassar.
Sanabria has a contract with Atlético de Madrid until June 30, 2023 And this season is key, if you have minutes and confidence, to show that it can be important in the future for the mattress team.
