Atletico Madrid looking to cut-price La Liga alternative for Sime Vrsaljko replacement
Atletico Madrid’s hunt for a replacement for Kieran Trippier is past the six-month mark.
Los Colchoneros sorely missed Trippier’s presence on the right-hand side last season, without which they struggled to balance their five at the back formation.
Those issues have been compounded: Diego Simeone showed little faith in Daniel Wass towards the end of last season and their only natural right-back Sime Vrsaljko left the club on a free this week.
According to Diario AS, the option that looks most likely to do so is Real Mallorca’s Pablo Maffeo. Other names such as Emerson Royale of Tottenham, Jonathan Clauss and Nahuel Molina. Those options appear to be proving too expensive.
The former Manchester City player impressed many last season with his tough tackling and ability to get up and down the flank, although moving to Atleti would be a major step up.
