Atléti will hire two players to replace Griezmann

Atlético sets sight on two Serie A stars to replace Griezmann

May 15, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The French striker will leave Los Colchoneros when the season ends, but the club has already targeted two men to fill his void.

Atlético Madrid fans may not be happy after Antoine Griezmann revealed his intentions to leave the club, but the following lines might put a smile on their faces.

Coach Diego Simeone knows that Griezmann's stats with Atlético will be hard to replace, but he is willing to try and do so with two top-caliber players, currently earning their wages in the Italian top flight, and with both of them eager to leave their respective clubs.

According to a report by As, Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi have already been contacted by Atlético Madrid execs to try and lure them away to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. Dybala is ready to leave Juventus after a year in which he lost his regular spot in the team's lineup, while Icardi's highly-publicized row with Inter's hierarchy makes most experts in Italy believe that he is ready to part ways with the nerazzurri.

In fact, Paulo Dybala's brother, Gustavo, admitted that his sibling is keen on a move away from the bianconeri side. 

"There is a good chance to see him leaving Juventus this summer, he needs a change. There are several players that are not comfortable there," Gustavo Dybala said.

Dybala's brother ruled out any problems between Paulo and Cristiano Ronaldo, since the Argentine's playing time with the Serie A champions was cut short when the Portuguese striker joined Allegri's side.

"He has never had problems with Cristiano Ronaldo, they get along just fine," Dybala's brother added.

Either player would be a suitable addition to Atlético, but maybe hiring both will be too expensive for Los Colchoneros. All we can do is sit and wait to see how things unfold during the next weeks, especially when the transfer window is officially open.
