Atlético reopens the Olivera road: Getafe rates it at 20 million

The rojiblanco club has been with the Uruguayan on the agenda for two years. As AS was able to know, Getafe will not make it easy: they rate him at 20 million and want the transfer of Mollejo.


Atlético wants to close the signing of a player they have been following for two years: Mathías Olivera. The Uruguayan full-back has taken a step forward this season at Getafe, where he took the starting position playing a total of 29 games (2,319 minutes) and at the rojiblanco club he is considered the ideal one to fight for the left-back position with I gave it. In addition, he has a Spanish passport, so he does not occupy an extra-community position.

At 22 years old, Olivera knows the League and stands out for his physical strength (he measures 1.85), claw and work both in defense and raising the band. His year as a starter in the azulón team under Bordalás has confirmed that he is ready to compete in LaLiga, something decisive for Simeone. Of course, Getafe will not facilitate his departure. As Mundo Deportivo announced and AS was able to confirm, the two clubs are already negotiating the transfer, but the claims of the Azulón team are high. They value Olivera at 20 million and request the inclusion of Víctor Mollejo as a loan officer in the operation, something that would lower the figure. A footballer that Simeone does not want to get rid of for the moment. His good season at Deportivo despite the relegation (the team's second top scorer with six goals) has caused Cholo to want to see him in training, and more so with the possible departure of a band player such as Lemar or Vitolo. In the framework of the negotiations, the loan of Darío Poveda to Getafe has already been closed.

The Uruguayan is a side with a different profile than Lodi, with less technical quality in attack, but disciplined behind, a facet in which the Brazilian has improved a lot since his arrival. Atlético began last season with Lodi as the only natural player in the left-back position, with Saúl and Hermoso interspersing the minutes in which he was not. Finally, it was Manu Sánchez, Atleti B winger, who became his alternative, especially after the break where he had three starting games, but the future of the youth squad could go through a loan to gain experience.

The club recovered Caio Henrique from his assignment to Gremio, being able to unite the two full-backs of the Brazilian Under-23 team, but finally Caio has left, transferred to Monaco for 8 million plus two in variables. In his case, he did have a style of play closer to Lodi's. The departure of Caio stopped the transfer of Manu Sánchez to Osasuna, but the arrival of Olivera could reactivate his departure on loan. The 20-year-old player is focused on the U21 National Team.
