Diego Simeone promises “important” summer transfer window for Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid ended a difficult season in a good manner on Saturday, as they defeated Real Sociedad 2-0 at Reale Arena courtesy of goals from Samuel Lino and Reinildo Mandava. Los Rojiblancos end their campaign without a trophy, and have finished outside the Top 3 for the first time since Diego Simeone’s first half-season in charge.

On the back of this disappointment, it has been widely reported that Atleti will be very active in the transfer market over the summer. Simeone has admitted that it should be an intriguing summer for his side, as per Diario AS.

“We have to look for the best that is needed for the team. We’ve talked, we’ve talked, we’ve charted the path we know we have to travel. The club will have to work, and we will also have to work on the possibilities that will make the players better. An important summer is coming up to work well.

“To continue generating what is happening to Atletico Madrid, that it seems normal to go to the Champions League again, to be among the six teams that have been in the tournament for twelve years… We put the demand first, it is getting higher and higher, but it is good that they ask it of us.”
