Thomas Partey has confirmed that he will stay at Atletico Madrid next season despite some reports linking with him a move away.
In January AS had reported that Thomas Partey had requested a meeting with Diego Simeone. The meeting was reportedly regarding his lack of playing time at Atletico this season. Reports had suggested that he might push for a move away in the summer from Wanda Metropolitano.
All these claims, however, have been rejected by Partey himself, he told Cadena COPE
“I’ve grown up with Atléti and I am sure I will stay here,”
“I don’t know of another place that will understand how I play like they do here.”
Many of the Atletico Madrid players have been linked with a move away from the club this summer. But Simeone can rest assured of Partey’s presence at the club next season.
After losing to Barcelona in their last game, Atletico Madrid is now 11 points adrift of the La Liga leaders.
Next up for Atletico Madrid is game against Celta Vigo at home on Saturday, 13 April.
