Banfield winger Agustin Urzi excited by Atletico Madrid interest

Banfield winger Agustin Urzi has welcomed interest from Atletico Madrid.

AS says Atletico are lining up a summer for the 20 year-old.

Urzi declared: "Being associated with the Atlético of (coach Diego) Simeone is a dream. I am excited to hear that Atlético loves me. It is a cradle of cracks, look at the example of the mythical Fernando Torres.

"Simeone has very pure Argentine blood and that gives him motivation in everything he does. He lives the games as if he were just another player and it is an incredible thing.

"I am passionate and I see myself identified with el 'Cholo'."

On moving to Europe, he added: "You always have to be prepared to face new challenges and I know that I have the support of my family and friends. Soccer is a beautiful sport and requires a prior discipline that I always comply with."
