As has been said publicly many times, Atlético aims to keep its key players thinking in the following years. After making renewals with Hulk, who relied solely on a clause that would inevitably be fulfilled, and Eduardo Vargas, who had become beloved by the white and white fans, the club opened negotiations with another player whose contract had expired.

This is right-back Mariano, who is linked with Atletico until December of this year. And with that, in July, he could already sign a pre-agreement with any other team. The Gallo direction wants continuity and is seeking an agreement with the 35-year-old athlete’s representatives.

The information was provided by Superesportes, which listened to Mariano’s manager, Marcelo Robalinho. The agent confirmed that negotiations had already begun. He said, “We’re talking.”

Although he deserves a renewal on the field, Mariano is already very old, making Atlético cautious before they offer the player a long contract. In his second spell with Minas Gerais, the team was announced in July 2020. It wasn’t the best start, to the point where he continued as Coca’s reserve under Jorge Sampaoli.

However, with Cuca, he began to gain more space and became the team player. Today, he also owns the position with Antonio Muhammed. So far there are 71 matches, with four assists and one goal scored. In this period he won the Campeonato Mineiro Championship (2020, 2021 and 2022), the Copa del Rey (2021), Campeonato Brasileiro (2021), Supercopa do Brasil (2022).

Dylan’s departure Athlete

Atletico may finish in the next few days with the departure of another player. In the hands of Gallo’s board of directors has an offer from the United States for attacking midfielder Dylan Borrero. The offer is $4 million (about 18.8 million Brazilian riyals) for 80% of the rights of the Colombian midfielder.

According to information from ge.com, progress has been made in negotiations with New England Revolution, a club interested in contracting Dylan. The trend is to have everything done the following week. It should be noted that the transfer period from the United States extends until the fourth of May.

In total, Dylan played 47 matches for Atlético and scored three goals. The increase in the number of aliens in the cast can be a determining factor in the acceptance of the rooster of American characters.
