The Athletic of Madrid has lost this summer to Antoine Griezmann, but already is working to build a team of dream, especially in the offensive plot. After Joao Félix, the 'conchoneros' expect to give another hit of market
Antoine Griezmann carried years being the big star of the Athletic of Madrid, but this summer has signed with the FC Barcelona in return of 120 million euros (the whole of his clause of rescission), of which 96 have gone to stop to the arks of the team colchonero (24 'kilos' are of the Real Sociedad by the agreement between the txuri-urdin and the colchoneros).
Besides, the athletic also have lost to key players like Diego Godín, Lucas Hernández, Juanfran, Rodri and very possibly Filipe Luis. But they have arrived other destined footballers to be important like Felipe (Port wine), Renan Lodi (Athletico), Marcos Llorente (Real Madrid) or the jewel of the crown, Joao Félix (Benfica).
This last, by which the club colchonero invested 126 million euros, is allocated to turn into the successor of Antoine Griezmann, but also will be accompanied by other big stars in attack. Diego Coast, Álvaro Morata or Thomas Lemar will accompany him, but still could arrive another crack: James Rodríguez.
The Colombian is like crazy for dressing of rojiblanco and in Wanda Metropolitan also are by the work to try tackle his signing. It would be the guinda of an offensive cake of a lot of talent, that would give fear and would convert to the Athletic in a team with serious options to conquer important titles.
The Athletic, with money in box
In defence, the Athletic of Madrid also will have to fichar to replace the important footballers that this summer have abandoned the team. We remember that the exit of Lucas Hernández to the Bayern of Munich left 80 millions in box, and the one of Rodri to the Manchester City other 70, to which it is necessary to add the 96 already mentioned of Griezmann.
Still they remain a lot of weeks so that it close the market, but what is sure is that in Wanda Metropolitan there will be movement to follow reinforcing to the team. They have gone big players, but have arrived other new with a lot of ambition. Besides, those that arrive also will be fully competitive, by what the ones of Simeone will follow aspiring to everything.
