Despite leading the race to lift this season’s La Liga title, Atletico Madrid are reportedly planning a squad overhaul in time for next season.
That’s according to El Larguero, who claim Diego Simeone is plotting several first-team departures.
Two big names tipped to move on are defender Jose Gimenez and midfielder Saul Niguez.
Although Gimenez leaving would be a shock, it could perhaps be explained by the fact his deal ends in two years time, however, Niguez’s current deal is not set to expire until 2026.
According to the outlet’s claims, both stars, along with the likes of Lucas Torreira (loan), Sime Vrsaljko and Víctor Machín ‘Vitolo’ could all be set for new clubs once the summer window opens.
