Atlético needs to remove the salary mass and Vitolo has a high profile with Atlético, a club to which he arrived with the band of an important footballer and with whom he has a contract until June 2022. The player always saw Getafe as a preferential option, since of a set very settled in Primera and does not have to move from the capital of Spain. In addition, from Míchel's coaching staff they have indicated that he will be a protagonist in the team.

After a difficult season at Wanda Metropolitano, in which he could barely play 454 minutes, the footballer had already expressed his desire not to have another year like this and that, therefore, he would talk to the club to find a way out, because in the Atlético would be difficult to become one of the important ones. "I want to be happy playing football as I have always done. If it is in Atleti better; if not, we will look for the best for both parties," he argued.

At Atlético, now, they have a vacancy to fill. The plan of the sports management is to give confidence to Marcos Paulo, who is already in Madrid and in whom they have a lot of faith. The Brazilian will start working with his new team on Wednesday, the day of the start of the preseason, wanting to convince Simeone that he may have a hole in the champion's squad.
