Atletico Madrid coach Aguirre unsure of Maniche replacement signing

Atletico Madrid coach Javier Aguirre held transfer talks with sports director Jesus Garcia Pitarch yesterday.

The pair met for an hour, with Aguirre emerging to only say: "If Maniche leaves, then I don't know if we need to sign a replacement. But we have until the end of the month, so there is plenty of time."

Asked about interest in Valencia outcast David Albelda, Aguirre added: "I don't know anything. Pitarch didn't say anything to me about him."
