Confirmation from Spain: Inter-Atletico Madrid contact for Jose Gimenez
Just like in Italy, in Spain, they are confirming Inter interest in Jose Gimenez, the Uruguayan defender of Atletico Madrid. According to AS, the Nerazzurri have already asked for the 22 year-old who wants to change scenery after having played very few minutes especially last season, similar to Angel Correa and Thomas Partey.
Gimenez wants to be a protagonist in the upcoming World Cup in Russia next year and he fears that the less that he plays, the unlikely it is that he would be called up for this tournament. Diego Simone likes him for his flexibility and the club considers him as a point of reference for the future seeing how Diego Godin is already 31 years old. Furthermore, Atletico Madrid have been banned by FIFA to make any more signing and so if they sell Gimenez, that would leave a big whole until January window.
