Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo Riquelme hints at Man City offer

Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo Riquelme admits he had offers to leave over the summer.

Riquelme was linked with Manchester City in August.

“I've been away from home for three years, and I'm from here," he told Marca.

“I have been here all my life, I feel it's my home.

“I have been away fighting for my chance, and now, having that opportunity is a turning point in my happiness and what I want is to succeed here.

“It's true there was several offers from powerful teams, but Atletico was always in my head, and I will fight for my dream here."
