TOBoth parts are clear, the time has come to poner end to a relationship that has never been satisfactory. We talk about Athletic and Vitolo, we talked about the option that the canary does not look like the red and white season 21-22, which would be the last of the contract he signed in 2017.
He arrived like a star, for 40 kilos and after a fight with Sevilla in which the participation of Simeone helped the canary end up wearing the red-and-white elastic. The determination of the Argentine in his signing (even with the team being sanctioned to register in that market) has not corresponded with the performance of Vitolo nor with the confidence of the full Cholo.
A bet that has been losing strength as the seasons have passed. The first, weighed down by muscle injuries that prevented him from acquiring the level he had at Sevilla. The last one, with hardly any option to play nor when the Covid left the staff without personnel. Not even in those did Vitolo have the regularity that led him, for the first time, to express his desire to go out.
First time showing your desire to go out
“I don’t want to live another year like this again. I want to play, be important and be happy. If it can be at Atlético de Madrid, the better. If not, I’ll look at what options there are elsewhere “, the footballer slid to open an exit door that the rojiblancos have opened for him in recent markets. The problem, its very high payroll of more than 4 million net that turn back any suitor. The last, the Villarreal last January.
Be that as it may, if both parties manage to reach an agreement to separate their paths, the Atlético will seek to replace the canary with an offensive player to join the Lemar, Correa, Joao Félix and co. More dynamite in attack for a team that is also looking for the 9 substitute while the future of Vitolo has just been solved.
