Atletico Madrid wins the race for Moussa Dembele
Atletico Madrid has won the race with other European teams for striker Moussa Dembele.
The French striker, Moussa Dembele has had a drop in form this edition. But Diego Simeone believes in his abilities. And has sought to approach Atletico as a replacement for the departed Diego Costa.
Dembele has played 18 games with Lyon. But not all as a starter where he has scored only one goal.
Despite his poor form, the Frenchman has been on the list of Juventus, Arsenal, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid.
But it seems that the race for him has been won by the Spanish giant. As he has already made an official offer.
L’Equipe has reported that Los Colchoneros have made an official offer to Lyon. Asking for his rightful loan at the end of the season.
Lyon has agreed to this offer although the amount of the purchase after six months has not been made known.
According to the French media, the two clubs have agreed and the formalization of Dembele as an Atletico player is only a matter of days.
