Atletico Madrid are peeved over the way Thomas Partey allowed his Arsenal move to materialize, sources told Rodrigo Faez and Alex Kirkland of ESPN.

The midfielder joined the Gunners on deadline day after the Premier League side triggered his release clause, which is reportedly valued at €50 million.

Atletico said they were notified of the clause being payed at 11:28 p.m. local time, just over 30 minutes before the transfer window closed. That happened despite Partey being a known target for Arsenal throughout the window.

Luis Suárez moves from Barcelona to Atlético Madrid

  Luis Suárez moves from Barcelona to Atlético Madrid MADRID — Luis Suárez is staying in Spain after all. Barcelona said late Wednesday that it reached a deal with Atlético Madrid for the transfer of the Uruguay striker for 6 million euros ($7 million). Suárez was let go by Barcelona following six mostly successful seasons in which he won 13 titles with the Catalan club. He leaves as Barcelona’s third highest scorer ever with 198 goals, behind César Rodríguez (232) and Lionel Messi (634). The 33-year-old Suárez had to find a new club after being told by incoming Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman that he was not in his plans.

Atletico Madrid were upset because they claim the Premier League club did not make a courtesy call to let them know they were willing to pay the Ghana But Atletico feel that after nine years in Madrid , five in the first team, it was unacceptable for Partey to arrange a medical in Madrid without telling his

Arsenal had previously struggled to raise funds for either player, with an inability to move out unwanted squad members hardly helping. Arsenal have been in constant touch with Partey’s representatives over the past two seasons and long knew the Ghana international would welcome the move .

With the fee deposited at the La Liga headquarters in Madrid, there was nothing Atletico could do to keep hold of the influential midfielder, something manager Diego Simeone said he was "worried" could happen as the deadline approached.

Having seen other players depart under similar circumstances in recent years, Atleti had tried to extend Partey's contract and increase his release clause. But the two sides couldn't come to an agreement on new terms, opening the door for Arsenal to secure a last-minute deal.

Atletico maintained throughout the summer that they wouldn't negotiate a transfer fee for the 27-year-old, who developed into a vital piece of Simeone's squad. He would only leave if his release clause was met, and Arsenal, after missing out on Houssem Aouar, returned at the 11th hour and did just that.
