Atletico Madrid GM Gil Marin: We are not pushing out Saul, Gimenez

Atletico Madrid GM Miguel Angel Gil Marin has denied reports they plan major sales this summer.

It's been claimed the likes of Saul Niguez and Jose Gimenez could be sold at the end of the season - even if Atletico finish champions.

But Gil Marin insists: "Saúl and Giménez are captains of the team, they have been at the club for many seasons and, therefore, they have earned the right to decide when and how to end their relationship with Atlético.

“I personally believe that it has not yet arrived and, in any case, the club will value the will and performance of each player. And that decisions will be made accordingly.

"It is rigorously false that the club wants both to leave, the only thing Atlético wants now is to think about winning LaLiga."
