Atletico Madrid interested in signing Leonardo Balerdi from Marseille


Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Leonardo Balerdi from Marseille.

Leonardo Balerdi could soon be leaving French football. According to L’Équipe, the centre-back has attracted interest from clubs, most notably Diego Simeone’s Atletico.

Balerdi joined Marseille from Dortmund and has spent four years at the club, playing over 100 matches with Marseille. The 25 year old has played two matches with the Argentina national team.


  1. Another great goal from Dybala. Emi Martinez made my day; thanks to him I have just discovered yellow card during penalty shootout are counted afresh

  2. Musso again excellent against Liverpool. He’s back to form.

    Mac Allister is used again as DM and he plays most of the time as third CB..! It’s a blunder from Klopp especially when he was in a great form as CM. Liverpool and Klopp deserved this exit

    They both were the best players on the pitch.

  3. Simeone is very particular about how he expects his players to train and perform. Not everyone makes the cut. Somehow Nehuen Perez did not impress him even though he might be a tough defender that Simeone should like. Would Balerdi fare better? It certainly seems like an upgrade for his career to move to a much better club and league.

    • I agree it is tough to make the cut under Simone which would assisst players to explore thier weaknesses. Molina still slowly improving on his defensive role to survive the cut. Unlike Perez trial period, Ballerdi will ‘ve an opportunity to fully unleash his potential as Athletico has no more well established CB Players like Godin and Gimenez but only makeshifts (Witsel).
