Partey: What happens if Arsenal target stays at Atletico Madrid?
While observers expect the deal to go through eventually, there remains a possibility that the Ghana star plays the 2020/21 season in SpainDespite the impact of the coronavirus on the sport and clubs’ finances, there was a feeling that the Gunners had made the Ghana star their primary target and had a solid plan to push the deal over the line. However, in what feels like an age, Mikel Arteta’s troops are still to complete the signing of the accomplished defensive and central midfielder.
Atlético de Madrid 6-1 Granada Goals: Costa (9th), Correa (48th), Félix (65th), Llorente (73rd) and Suárez (86th and 94th)) for Atlético // Molina (87th) for Granada.
The seasons pass, and Atlético de Madrid is still there.
For their recovery, the Colchoneros blew up Grenade at home (6-1). Dominators, the premises quickly made the difference: in the ninth minute, Costa placed a good ball to open the scoring on a cross from Correa. Then, Félix got a penalty in the quarter of an hour of play, which Saúl however spoiled. The fault of Rui Silva, author of a beautiful parade on the spot.
Unfortunately for him, the goalkeeper had to get another ball in his net early in the second half. After a nice collective action, Felix indeed found Correa who took care of the break. The Madrid nugget then turned into a serene scorer, thanks to an inspired fake strike ridiculing the opposing defender who fell on the buttocks and a smart body movement from Costa. Finally, Llorente participated in the party, taking advantage of an assist from the incoming Suárez before serving his servant, whose winning header allowed him to score, from his first appearance in his new colors… Even more successful, continued to a new pawn in added time. Note, too, Molina's anecdotal goal to save honor.
