Atletico Madrid signed Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese last summer after an impressive Copa America. The creative midfielder has also impressed Udinese in the Serie A for years now. The Argentine international has attracted the focus and interest of many top Serie A clubs. However, the midfielder eventually signed for the Spanish giants in 2021.
However, the Spanish club is not satisfied with the return on their investment and are open to cutting losses. Manager, Diego Simeone has reportedly seen enough and has made up his mind about the player. Rodrigo De Paul has not contributed in the same manner as he did at Udinese.
An essential factor in this whole discussion is that the player is not being played in his usual position. Udinese used Rodrigo De Paul as an attacking midfielder and not as a central midfielder in a 3-man midfield. Diego Simeone has used the player in an unfamiliar position with more defensive responsibilities than before. He is expected to track back, which has affected his contributions.
Juventus may benefit from the decision of Atletico Madrid
The Bianconeri have always maintained an interest in the Argentine international. Rodrigo De Paul is a proven player when it comes to Serie A. Juventus does not have a creative midfielder who can unlock defences ever since the departure of Miralem Pjanic.
The former Udinese man can be that midfielder for the Old Lady in the coming years. Rodrigo De Paul can link the defence and the forwards seamlessly. However, Juventus will have to be careful with the transfer as they have made some astonishingly expensive failed transfers over the years.
The club needs to negotiate the right kind of deal in order to ensure that they benefit both financially and sportingly. However, Atletico Madrid’s willingness to cut their losses and sell the player might help Bianconeri. The asking price can be reduced as not many clubs are targeting the Argentine midfielder!!
