Thomas Partey will listen to offers this summer

first_imgThe Ghanaian’s lack of signature on those papers that have been on his table since October is due, it is feared, to his intention to listen to offers. At least that, listening to them, something that makes the Cholo tremble for whom Thomas is irreplaceable. Last summer, even when the rumors about Rodrigo’s possible march to the Premier, City of Guardiola, increased, he remained firm: the undisputed of the two was Thomas. Atlético, for the moment, have always waited calmly, although the months go by and that long-awaited signature does not arrive. “My agent is talking to the club. Sometimes we don’t have what we want, but I hope that everything turns out well,” said the footballer a few weeks ago, to which he added a “it is a pride to attract the attention of more teams and that It motivates me. It makes me feel like I’m doing things right and keep improving. Leave? Sometimes it is not only the player’s decision, also the club’s. If Atlético loves me, I’ll be here until they don’t love me and then we’ll see what we do “that could have a disturbing reading. That” sometimes is not just the player’s decision “. Obsesses in the PremierBecause, what is written, Arsenal and United are going to launch for him this summer. They have him as Simeone in their plans, a priority. “There is a lot of interest in his signature”, he considered in Mail Online in his information, to which he added the fundamental role of the Ghanaian in the rojiblanco team since Gabi left. “He has managed to fill the void”, he affirmed, flattering capital, for what I get carries implicit. Thomas is, at this time, and before the coronavirus-forced break, the third most used soccer player by Simeone this season, the second on the field (behind Saúl and Oblak), with 2,859 minutes. The offer has been on the table for Thomas Partey for months. An offer from Atlético de Madrid with a rise in salary and a clause to make him one of the footballers in the squad at the salary level of what he is on the field: essential. Its termination now sounds cheap, 50 million, affordable for club in England living obsessed with Ghanaian. Manchester United and Arsenal, for example, especially. The English press woke up today, Mail Online, with the concern of both for the rojiblancas intentions that this contract be signed in the coming weeks. A contract that would shield him, € 100 million clause, and extend his contract beyond 2023, when it ends now, in addition to putting a millionaire salary.last_img read more
