Atlético’s sports management continues to work despite the fact that the transfer market closed on August 31. A window that ended the rojiblancos yielding to Saul and getting the return of Antoine Griezmann. Two media footballers who have little to do with the profile of the player who are trying to sign the Metropolitan.
AND is that Andrea Berta has set her eyes on Paul Onuachu, Nigerian Genk striker that averages, it is said soon, one target per match. Nine bear his signature in a brutal start to the season that continues the excellent course that the 20-21 campaign drew. Then there were 35 the goals of a footballer who draws attention for its spectacular wingspan measuring 2.01 meters.
For next summer … or this winter market
So far Berta has shown interest in a different footballer for whom there have already been contacts with Genk, a team she arrived in 2019 from Midtjylland. It has been in Belgium where he is showing all the repertoire that has led the rojiblancosThey are not the only ones interested in looking at a footballer valued by specialized websites at 22 million euros.
The dilemma, in the event of the signing, is to know if its arrival would be for the next winter market, an option that is gaining strength, or for the next fiscal year. Although the competition up front is enormous, Onuachu’s finishing conditions would give a new variant to Simeone, that only has Luis Suárez as a pure finisher.
Its price, about 20 million euros
Be that as it may, the market price of the Nigerian tip is 20 million euros. An acceptable amount for the rojiblancos, who would bet on a player with a brutal average achiever which the rojiblancos have already gone to see several times live. In fact, in recent days there have been meetings to specify a signing that would make the rojiblanca squad even more powerful, one of the candidates for this entire course.
The forward would not occupy an extra-community place by joining the Cotonou treaty, so its arrival in January would not be a problem. He is a physically strong player, who is doing great at the top and averaging one goal per game. In fact, last year he fought for the Golden Boot thanks to his great numbers, which have caused Atlético to notice him.
