Rodrigo de Paul is determined to succeed with Atletico Madrid next season despite the interest of several heavy-hitters across Europe including Roma. That’s according to Marca, who assert that the Argentine is committed to showing his best level for Diego Simeone.
De Paul is a fundamental part of the Argentine national team and was key to their successes in the Copa America last summer, when they beat Brazil, and La Finalissima this summer, when they beat Italy. He wants to be playing his best football when he heads to the Middle East for the forthcoming World Cup in Qatar later this year.
His first season at the Wanda Metropolitano hasn’t been what either party expected when he was signed from Udinese. But it’s true that his form did improve in the back end of the campaign and by the end he was playing good football. Given it was such a poor collective season for Atletico, the hope in the Spanish capital is that we’ll see the real De Paul soon.
