If there is a phrase used to refer to the style of Cholo is that in their teams defend all. Another topic of Simeone's sets is that the first to defend are the forwards. However, it is true that for several seasons, the defensive line has not been as solid as in those early years with the Argentine front. In Liga, last season they fit seven more goals than the previous one (29 against 22) and it was with a painful 3-0 against Juventus as the colchoneros said goodbye to the Champions League.
For that reason from the club there is a main objective, to create a defense of guarantees after several signings that have not finished, such as Savic, Vrsaljko or Arias, although in the Colombian one still has faith.
The loss of Godín has also served as the start for a revolution, and if all the projects are finished culminating the defensive line of the next season could be something like this:
Right side: Kieran Trippier
It's the latest rumor of the transfer market. In England they assure that the English international of the Tottenhan will arrive at the Wanda in exchange for 28 Millions of Euros. If so, it would be a great operation for Atlético that would win a defense with a lot of experience, and also a set-piece weapon.
The Uruguayan has to take a step forward this season to become the leader of the rear. After the departure of his compatriot Godin remains the only defense that has the full confidence of Simeone.
Central: Mario Hermoso
One of the silent soap operas of summer is about to finish with the Real Madrid squad, now at Espanyol, at Atlético de Madrid for 25 Million. The Spanish international of 24 years has been one of the sensations of this season and today is the couple of Sergio Ramos as a starter in the Red.
Left side: Renán Lodi
It is true that the position was covered with Santiago Arias, the best player of the Eredivise two years ago. However, he has not finished convincing Cholo in this first season. On the other hand the Brazilian side, recently arrived from Atlético Paranaense, is a new version of the lateral type of the canarinha, but with the defensive skill that Simeone always asks for.
Second Unit: Arias, Felipe, Montero
In addition to the aforementioned Arias, Atlético de Madrid has taken control of the central Felipe, Brazilian from Oporto. The 30-year veteran will fight for a starting position with Hermoso and Giménez, who will also rest and always ahead of Savic in the rotations.
In addition, there is also the figure of the youth squad Huntsman who has already played with Cholo who has him for next season.
