Koke - 280 thousand pounds a week
Koke is a living legend of the current Atlético. The footballer, who has gone from the mattress academy to the first team, of which he is now the captain, enjoys great respect and love from the fans. Koke's path to the foundation of Atlético was not easy, but he did not turn away from it and did not look for simpler solutions.
As a result, since the 2012/13 season, the midfielder has been a key performer for the “mattress”, taking an active part in the team's two victories in La Liga, two triumphs in the Europa League and two qualifications to the Champions League finals.
Luis Suarez - 281 thousand pounds a week
Luis Suarez management “Atletico” actually “picked up” on the market in the fall of last year, when the Uruguayan was unclaimed in “Barcelona”. Only 7 million euros was enough for the mattress to buy the contract of the veteran who helped Atlético win the league title, scoring 21 goals in 32 La Liga matches.
His debut season in Madrid turned out to be very successful for Suarez: he had the motivation to prove to the Blaugranas bosses that he was written off early, and to the rest of the football world, Luis wanted to demonstrate that he could still be useful at the highest level.
Antoine Griezmann - £ 297,000 a week
Antoine Griezmann spent an excellent five years at Atlético before joining Barcelona in the summer of 2019 for 120 million euros. “Mattress makers” did not prudently refuse such money, and Antoine himself expressed a desire to try his hand in the capital of Catalonia. Alas, nothing good happened in Griezmann's career at Barcelona: in two years he acquired only the Spanish Cup, and in August 2021 he returned to Atlético.
Madrid rented Antoine for the season with the option to renew the lease in a year and the obligation of a subsequent purchase. Whatever it was, but the sum of the future full-fledged transfer of the Frenchman to Atlético will not exceed 40 million euros, which is why the bosses of Madrid have done a good business with the football player.
