Atletico to sign Dembele

Atletico Madrid will soon sign a contract with French forward of Lyon Moussa Dembele.

This season, Atletico Madrid are seriously claiming the championship title after seven years. Before the start of the season, the club lost Alvaro Morata, who was loaned to Juventus Turin. Now Diego Costa left the Indians' camp, leaving only João Felix and Luis Suarez in the club's attack.

With the style of play that Diego Simeone has been promoting for many years, this is not enough to hedge and for the width of the bench. Therefore, Moussa Dembele, who is not going to pursue a career in Lyon, drew attention of the Mattress Makers. The forward after a successful last season and reaching the Champions League semifinals, lost faith in the club and is going to leave two and a half years before the end of the contract.

Even the sports director of Les Gones Juninho announced the forward's intentions, which speaks of the seriousness of the intentions of both the player and Atlético,

“Moussa thinks this is the moment for a team change, that he has lost some motivation. This was not what we foresaw, I really like him.

Holding on to someone who doesn't really want to maintain that intensity for the next five months isn't ideal. We are in talks with Atlético, I think Moussa has made an agreement with them,” Juninho told Telefoot.

I guess everyone remembers the difficulties with the players leaving Lyon. Most of the problems were created by the president of the club, Jean-Michel Aulas, who was blocking the way to the departure of Aouar, Depay, and Nabil Fekir before.

Now Les Gones, apparently, understand that nothing will work out with Dembele, so they are ready to loan him for half a season with the possibility of a buyout for 35 million euros. Truth be told, it’s a ridiculous sum for a forward of such a profile. He is fast, defined and plays great in the air. In fact, he is a young version of Diego Costa, but so far without the characteristic differences and meanness on the pitch. But under the influence of Diego Simeone, all this is developed with experience, so the transfer of Dembele is extremely beneficial for Atlético.
