Atlético had two non-EU members in the squad that won the League, Felipe and Lodi, so it still has a third vacancy for 2021-22. This square is in principle for Trippier, that until June counted as a community, and would not basically alter the champion’s roadmap. The change does not affect in a direct way, although it does will do it indirectly to group planning.
With Brexit, which upsets Trippier, The great losers in this matter are Nehuén Pérez and Arias, those who do have options to stay in the rojiblanco team, mainly the former, for purely sporting aspects. Nehuén could be the fifth center-back of the squad. Savic, Giménez, Felipe and Hermoso are the other four, although the latter has played many games as a left back. Simeone has often used the three-panel system, so four can fall short and, in addition, the problems with Giménez’s injuries make it possible for Atlético to think about staying with the Argentine Nehuén, who will participate in the Olympic Games, to shore up the position.
Arias has it complicated after being almost a year without playing. Trippier and Vrsaljko are ahead of the Colombian, although the Croatian could come out. The Briton is indisputable for Simeone and non-transferable for the club, although from England they insist that Manchester United will try to take him away.
If Trippier did not occupy an extra-community position, Nehuén or Arias would have some option to stay. Otherwise it seems impossible. On the other hand, newcomers have no problem registering: Marcos Paulo is Brazilian with a Portuguese passport Y De Paul, an Argentine, also has it as an Italian.
