Athletic: casting under sticks

Adam will not continue and Atlético is looking for a second goalkeeper. Like Roberto, Dmitrovic and José Sá. The one who comes must assume to be the substitute for Oblak.


Antonio Adán has decided not to continue at Atlético. The 33-year-old keeper ends his contract with the rojiblanco club at the end of this season and does not want to continue in the entity of the Wanda Metropolitano. Adam wants to play and at Atlético he has barely been able to do so, since he has been in the shadow of Oblak. The sports management is happy with the goalkeeper and the club made him a proposal to continue, but Adam has rejected it. In principle it seems that his future will be linked to Sporting de Portugal.

And at Atlético a casting is now open to relieve the Betis exporter. Berta has several names on the table. The goalkeeper who comes to the Madrid team will do it knowing that it will be difficult for him to play, since Oblak is a fixed starter and is indisputable for Cholo. Adam has played seven games for Atlético in these two seasons and has conceded eight goals. It is true that this year Atlético was eliminated at the first exchange in Copa del Rey by Cultural Leonesa, a tournament that was assigned to Adam. Roberto, Dmitrovic and José Sá are goalkeepers managed by Andrea Berta, rojiblanco sports director.

Roberto is an old acquaintance of the red and white hobby. He trained in the lower categories of Atlético and with 34 years he could return to the club where he started. He has played the second part of the season on loan at Alavés, although he belongs to West Ham, with whom he ends his contract on June 30, 2021. He is a very veteran goalkeeper, knows LaLiga and Atlético. It is one of the options handled by Berta.

Marko Dmitrovic, 28, has had very good seasons at Eibar. The Serbian also knows our championship and ends his contract with the Basque club on June 30, 2021. Undisputed holder, he has played 35 league competition games and has conceded 51 goals. It would be necessary to see if Dmitrovic would be willing to come to Atlético to be a substitute for Oblak. But he is a keeper very liked by the rojiblancos technicians.

From abroad the name that has sounded the most is that of José Sá, goalkeeper of the Greek Olympiacos. He is 27 years old, so he still has seasons ahead to perform at a good level. The Portuguese, a native of Braga, has a good lineup and Jorge Mendes brings him, who has a great relationship with the leaders of the Madrid club. Bringing a goalkeeper from another championship seems the most complicated option, since Berta likes more than the keeper to know our League.
