Atletico Madrid Want Celtic Forward Georgios Samaras

La Liga side keen on Parkhead star.

Atletico Madrid are planning something of a surprise move for Celtic striker Georgios Samaras according to the Daily Mail.

Hull City and Lazio are also said to be keen on the experienced forward but a move to join the in-form La Liga side may well tempt Samaras.

28 year old Greek international Samaras will be out of contract in the summer and therefore is available on the cheap in January, though one wonders if an offer of just £1m for the former Man City man would tempt the SPL champions to sell such a crucial member of Neil Lennon’s attack.

Samaras is a fan favourite at Parkhead but looks likely to leave sooner or later with the long haired marksman stating recently;

“I don’t know what the next stage of my career will bring,” Samaras said recently.

“Money has never been a motivating factor in my career because I could have left Celtic and signed for a team with more money. I’ve had offers, most from teams in England, who have offered more money than Celtic.”

Since moving to Glasgow in January 2008, initially on loan, Samaras has racked up 71 goals in 239 appearances.
