Rodrigo set for imminent switch to Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid are set to sign the Spanish forward after agreeing a fee with Los Che.

In order to fulfill their attacking line along Diego Costa and Joao Felix, the Spanish international is close to joining the Colchoneros.

Atletico Madrid are on the verge of signing Valencia’s Spain international striker Rodrigo Moreno for a fee of around €60 million, according to reports in Spain.

The 28-year-old missed morning training with his club and traveled to Madrid after saying goodbye to his teammates in order to undergo a medical with Atletico and confirmation of the deal is expected in the coming days, as soon as per several new reports, Angel Correa moves to AC Milan.

Diego Simeone’s interest Rodrigo, alongside the good relations between his agent Jorge Mendes and Valencia’s owner Peter Lim, have made this a very easy negotiation for both parties. The 28-year-old is set to move to Madrid in a bulky deal, completing what has been a summer rebuild for one of the best teams in the world.

Diego Costa’s most recent injury history could have been a decisive factor to bring in one of the most prolific strikers in La Liga, as he had another setback in his latest match against Juventus which will cause him to miss the start of the season.

Other teams across Europe tried their luck with Valencia about Moreno’s availability, Everton and Napoli being the major names, but bumped into the Madrid club’s asking price. His goal tally dropped off last season, but still, he managed to score 15 goals in 51 appearances, saving his club from relegation zone directly to Champions League access.
