Angel Correa to stay at Atletico Madrid after Milan interest

Angel Correa is expected to stay at Atletico Madrid beyond this summer after Milan did not match his valuation, report Diario AS.

It is claimed that the Rossoneri made several approaches for the Argentine forward but none of them matched the valuation of Los Rojiblancos.

The Argentine had become a crucial part of Atleti’s attack since joining from San Lorenzo in 2015, making 178 appearances under Diego Simeone.

However, despite being under a long-term deal at the club until 2024 he is an increasingly peripheral figure in the squad and with just 30 goals over four years, now looks set to be moved on.

Tottenham and Wolves were all said to hold an interest in the player who looks set to leave Atleti this summer, although the club arweree likely to negotiate well below the player’s €100m release clause.

Atleti have already broken their club record signing to land Benfica star Joao Felix this summer in a €126m deal, while they have also been heavily linked to Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez.

Alvaro Morata, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar are also in contention for starting roles in the side’s attack while Ivan Saponjic has joined from Benfica.

Rodrigo Moreno was set to join Atleti from Valencia but that move may now be off due to Correa staying.
