The Premier League has become a continuous headache for the Atletico Madrid, although where we write the name of the rojiblanco club, we could put almost anyone’s. Because the English championship, with a lot of economic muscle, has become accustomed to taking players at the stroke of a checkbook.

In terms of mattresses, the latest example has been that of Boubacar Kamara. Atlético had laid the foundations for an agreement with the French midfielder, whose contract with him ends Olympic Marseille. It was negotiated months ago and in the Metropolitan they were more than optimistic about the incorporation of the young Frenchman to the team Diego Simeone.

But he entered the scene Aston Villa. He offered more money to the footballer. And the agents. Steven Gerrard He did the rest, and Kamara slammed the door for Atlético to set off for England. Before, those from Birmingham had already touched Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Before, players like Thomas, Rodrigo or Trippier They already undertook this trip to the islands, in the case of the Englishman, back, since he had arrived two years earlier from Tottenham. In the case of the first two, the marches hurt more. Firstly because they were homegrown players and secondly, because they had a great future ahead of them at Atlético, especially in the case of Rodrigo.

But Arsenal and Manchester City decided, with the approval of the players, to pay their respective termination clauses (50 and 70 million) to take the two midfielders. In the case of the Ghanaian, on the last day of the transfer market.

Before the marches of these players, more than a decade ago, Aguero and De Gea They have already started a path to Manchester (one to City, the other to United) that showed Atlético what awaited them in the not too distant future: the threat of the Premier. Then it was the turn of Diego Costa or Filipe Luis, which left the reigning league champion for Chelsea. The two ended up coming back.


And this summer there may be more. Because Newcastle wants Lodi and Carrasco. In the case of the first, the rojiblanco club would be willing to open the door for him as long as the offer is not less than 40 million. With the Belgian there are no doubts. Clause or nothing, although it is true that it is ‘only’ 70 ‘kilos’, a perfectly affordable amount for the Magpies. Carrasco wants to continue at Atlético, and also a salary improvement. Simeone you also want me to continue.

And there are more players on the radar of the Premier. Starting with a cloud whom Atlético wants to renew and following for a Gimenez that has always had a great poster in the islands.
