Diego Simeone has confirmed Atletico Madrid's interest in Carlos Tevez and says they are close to signing Luciano Vietto.

The Madrid outfit are keen to lure the Argentina international to the Vicente Calderon stadium this summer as they look to reinforce their squad for next season.

Tevez is under contract with Juve for another year but has long been linked with a potential return to Boca Juniors.

"One always gets excited if you have players like Tevez," Simeone told Spanish sports newspaper AS when asked about his compatriot.

"More than the goals he can score per season, he has football running through his veins.

"It would be an ideal reinforcement considering the way we experience football at Atletico Madrid."

Tevez, who joined the Turin giants from Manchester City in a B#10million transfer in 2013, was Juve's top scorer this season with 20 league goals. He also set up seven more to help Juve clinch their fourth straight Scudetto.

One Argentinian striker who is on the verge of signing for Atletico is Villarreal's Luciano Vietto.

Vietto scored 12 goals in 32 Primera Division appearances for the Yellow Submarine in the 2014-15 campaign and is set to join Atletico in a reported B#15million transfer deal.

Simeone knows Vietto well having signed the player from Estudiantes while he was in charge of Argentinian side Racing Club in 2011.

"Vietto is one of our aims," Simeone said. "We are close to signing him.

"I hope we can have him with us next season because he is a player that has extraordinary characteristics."

Simeone, meanwhile, has ruled out the return of Monaco's Colombian forward Radamel Falcao to Atletico this summer.

Falcao, who spent two campaigns with the Rojiblancos before signing for Monaco in 2013, has endured a difficult season on loan at Manchester United, scoring just four goals in 29 appearances.

"Falcao's situation is not an issue that we have spoken about with the sporting directors," Simeone said. "It's true that he gave us a lot but our sporting plan is not heading in that direction."

The Atlético Madrid midfielder Arda Turan wants a move to the Premier League this summer and has three offers from top English clubs, according to his agent.

The Turkey international has two years left on his contract with the Spanish club and has been strongly linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderón stadium this summer.

“His intention is to leave Spain this summer,” Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut told the Spanish sports newspaper AS. “His will is to leave and to play in the Premier League, that is the path he would like to take to continue his career.

“We are currently in talks with three teams but I cannot reveal the names of the clubs. However, I can tell you that they are the best in England and in European football.”

Turan, who joined Atlético in the summer of 2011 from Galatasaray from €12m, helped the Rojiblancos win the Copa del Rey three years ago and La Liga title during the 2013-14 campaign.

The 28-year-old scored two goals and set up four more in 32 Primera Division appearances to help Atlético finish third in La Liga last season.

Turan is also a target of Milan and Paris Saint-Germain. “It’s true that Milan and PSG are two of the six teams that are interested in him,” Bulut said.

“But the Italian team is not among our options because they will not play in the Champions League next season. PSG is a possibility although Arda always has the desire to play in England.”


If he comes to England my money is on Chelsea they seem to have a boner for Atletico Madrid players

2 goals and 4 assists isn't a great return for an attacking player in 32 matches

The Arsenal and Milan target Jackson Martínez is set for a move to Atlético Madrid, according to the player’s agent.

Luiz Henrique Pompeo told the Spanish newspaper AS the deal was confirmed on Tuesday for a fee of €35m (£24.8m) and the Colombian striker is said to be looking forward to joining up with his new team-mates.

Pompeo said: “It was finalised today. We want to thank AC Milan for their interest right up to the end, we feel very honoured by it, but you can’t be in two places at once.

“It’s a very big club, which has done important things in the league and in Europe. Jackson is going there also to achieve great things and to bring the best out of himself to become even better. That’s his dream and he’s very excited. He’s really happy.”

The agent also confirmed contact had been made with the Atlético manager Diego Simeone and the transfer would be confirmed once Martínez’s involvement in the Copa América ends.

“He’s a coach with a winning mentality,” Pompeo said. “Now it just remains for Atlético and Porto to make the official announcement and after the Copa América, where Martinez is representing [his country], he will be presented with his new shirt.”


Got a lot of time for Atletico's policy of spending all their money on strikers every summer

Arda Turan’s agent has said that the Atlético Madrid midfielder, who has been linked with several Premier League clubs, will make a decision on his future within four days.

The Turkey international has expressed a wish to leave the La Liga club this summer and has been mentioned in connection with Manchester United and Chelsea. His representative, Ahmet Bulut, says that a resolution is imminent.

“A lot of things about his transfer are being published but not everything they say is true,” he told NTVSpor. “We want to clarify that at this time there is a lot of pressure about this situation but we don’t want to make a formal statement about his destination before he signs. That being said, in the next four days Arda will decide which team he’ll play for next season.”

Bulut added that Atlético have reluctantly accepted Turan’s decision to depart. “Our decision really surprised Atlético Madrid,” he said. “They don’t want Arda to leave and were persistent but in the end, they respected and accepted our decision. But of course, nothing is completely done until he signs. However, we made sure the message was clear that we wanted to leave Atlético.”

Turan, who has won 81 caps for his country, joined Atlético from Galatasaray in 2011. He won the 2013-14 La Liga title with the Madrid club and was a Champions League runner-up during the same season.

Atlético Madrid have added an extra option in attack by signing the Belgium winger Yannick Carrasco from Monaco.

The 21-year-old is the latest youngster to join Atlético, who have also brought in the Argentinian forward Luciano Vietto from Villarreal since the end of last season.

Carrasco, who moved to Ligue 1 Monaco from Racing Genk in 2010, has agreed a five-year contract, Atlético said on their website. They did not disclose financial details but the Spanish media reported that the club had paid €15m (£10.7m) for 75% of the player’s rights, with Monaco holding on to the remaining 25%.

“Yannick is a player with massive prospects who has an incredible future,” the Atlético sporting director, José Luis Pérez Caminero, said. “He is a player with great speed, excellent ball skills and a great shot. He will contribute perfectly to our goal of lifting the level of the squad and the group’s competitiveness. I am convinced he will give us a huge amount.”

Atlético have also agreed to sign the Colombia striker Jackson Martínez from Porto, the Portuguese side said this month, although the Spanish club have yet to confirm the deal.

The Madrid team have sold two key players in the close season, with Turkey’s captain, Arda Turan, joining the Spanish and European champions, Barcelona, and the Croatia international Mario Mandzukic moving to the Italian champions, Juventus.

La Liga is due to begin on the weekend of 22-23 August. Atlético have qualified for the group stages of next season’s Champions League.

Diego Simeone has suggested that he will not leave Atlético Madrid in the summer, as speculation grows over who will become the next permanent manager at Chelsea.

Since the sacking of José Mourinho on Thursday, Chelsea have installed Guus Hiddink as interim manager – the Dutchman will begin starting with the first team this week after attending the 3-1 win over Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

However, it remains to be seen who will be in charge next season, and Simeone is thought to be one of the candidates in Roman Abramovich’s thinking. Pep Guardiola is another manager linked with the position, after he announced he will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of this campaign.

“Why can’t I be here longer?” Simeone said in El Pais on Monday when asked about leaving Atlético, in an interview conducted before Mourinho’s departure. “Why did I choose a five-year contract? Because I see a club that is ‘virgin’ and Miguel Ángel [Gil Marín, the chief executive] and Enrique [Cerezo, the president] have the ability to open up new sources to strengthen in. It’s not easy to leave Atlético.”

Simeone added: “More than a team we are a family, and we are a real family. Obviously we have internal problems, there are players who get angry and who will get angry because they don’t play. I am the father and the grandfather is a role for Miguel Ángel Gil and Enrique Cerezo.

“We have a potential that no one has. Oblak, Giménez, Vietto, Carrasco, Óliver, Koke, Correa, Saúl, Lucas, Thomas … 10 young players and the veterans are at the perfect age.”

Atlético are currently joint leaders of La Liga, although they lost their third match of the season on Sunday night, with their captain Gabi sent off at Málaga, who scored a late winner through their striker Charles.

Reports in Spain Jackson Martinez sold to Chine for €45m

Brave for a club facing a 2 window transfer ban starting in the summer

Apparently Simeone didn't rate him fair play for making a quick decision getting rid quick for a €10m profit

Have to question Martinez motivation heading off to China in your peak years China making some big plays for players as FFP doesn't effect them

FFP rules still exist Pak just the punishments are less severe and boundaries have been moved for the acceptable levels of debt clubs can run up basically they have to demonstrate how they plan to pay the money back to satisfy FFP rules.

Is Mendes Martinez agent as well? South American footballer, who was third part owned who used to play for Porto does sound very Mendes.

China is dropping some serious wedge these days apparently Falcao had a move back to Atletico fall through on deadline day but you wouldn't be surprised if he took his tour to China now bet Monaco can't wait to see the back of him he's costing them an absolute fortune.

Yeah Mendes is his agent. In the pictures doing the rounds the player looks super miserable while the other 10 people in the room have massive grins :lol:

Rumours Teixera is also off to China today. They're certainly making waves.

Do they want an oversized microphone for £30mil?

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has received a touchline ban for the final three La Liga games of the season.

The Argentine, 45, appeared to instruct a ball boy to throw a ball on to the pitch to disrupt a Malaga attack during Atletico's 1-0 win on Saturday.

Simeone, who was sent to the stands at half-time, said: "It is clear the referee took the correct decision."

He will not miss Atletico's Champions League semi-final first-leg at home to Bayern Munich on Wednesday (19:45 BST).

Simeone will miss the home game against Rayo Vallecano on 30 April, the trip to Levante on 8 May and the visit of Celta Vigo on 15 May, the final day of the season.

Atletico, who are second to La Liga leaders Barcelona on goal difference, have 10 days in which to appeal.


Need to find a video of this :laugh:

Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has signed a new contract.

The Spain international has agreed to stay for another season after his previous deal expired last week.

The 32-year-old former Liverpool and Chelsea player returned to Atletico, with whom he began his professional career, from AC Milan in 2015.

He scored 12 goals in 44 games last season for Atletico, who were beaten in the Champions League final by Real Madrid and finished third in La Liga.

His strike partner, France international Antoine Griezmann, signed a new deal last week.


I thought they had a transfer ban that stopped them signing players this summer but I guess that's gone away.

Didn't realise Griezmann had signed a new deal as well great news for them

The France striker Kevin Gameiro has joined Atlético Madrid on a four-year deal from fellow La Liga side Sevilla, last season’s Champions League finalists announced on Saturday.

The 29-year-old scored 67 goals in three years at Sevilla and though no financial details of the transfer were released, media reports suggested Atlético signed the France forward for an initial fee in the region of £28m (€32m).

“Atlético Madrid and Sevilla FC have reached an agreement for the transfer of Kevin Gameiro to our club. The striker, who will sign for four seasons, will travel to Madrid this evening,” Atlético said in a statement.

“The transfer is contingent to the French player successfully undergoing a medical examination.”

Gameiro’s arrival is also likely put an end to Atlético’s hopes of re-signing the striker Diego Costa from Chelsea. “Diego Costa is our player,” said the Chelsea manager Antonio Conte earlier this month. “He’s a fantastic player with fundamental importance. He’s very happy and is working hard.”

Meanwhile, the Atlético forward Luciano Vietto has moved in the opposite direction by joining Sevilla on a season-long loan, with the Europa League champions having the option of reaching a permanent deal during the next summer transfer window.

Atlético Madrid finished third in La Liga last term and begin the new season at home to Deportivo Alavés on 21 August.

Put money on Gameiro scoring a bucketload of goals over the next two years then either moving to England or China. Their success with signing forwards is unreal.

Tell that to Jackson Martinez

They get the odd one wrong but it is rather ridiculous they tend to back proven scorers though who've scored plenty of goal at another club.

Gameiro has been scoring bucket loads at Seville after he replaced Bacca who scored loads before going to Milan.

Atletico Madrid will not be able to sign players in the January window as they continue to contest a Fifa ban.

The Spanish side - and rivals Real Madrid - were banned last January from registering players for two windows for breaching rules over the transfer of players under 18.

However both were allowed to continue to make signings while they appealed.

But Atletico have now agreed to "waive its right to seek the suspension of the ban for the winter transfer period".

Cas will make a final decision by 1 June after Atletico's first appeal - to Fifa in September - failed.

A club statement, which reiterated that they are "completely unmoved in its position that the transfer ban is unjustified", said it was "to ensure a procedural calendar that allows Atletico Madrid to fully present its appeal, while giving Cas sufficient time to thoroughly consider all the arguments".

Real are still allowed to sign players in January.

La Liga champions Barcelona were given the same punishment for the same offence in April 2014 and were banned from signing players in both 2015 windows after failing in their appeals to Fifa and Cas.


Interesting tactic they probably weren't planning on signing anyone anyway but they'll use the fact they sat out this window to get a reduced penalty on some sort of deal.

Saying a club can't sign players in the January window is no real punishment anyway as very little business is done by the top clubs.
