La Repubblica: Atletico prepare offer for Ljajic

Today’s edition of La Repubblica claims that La Liga champions Atletico Madrid are prepared to make an offer for Roma’s Adem Ljajic.

Despite being given assurances from manager Rudi Garcia that there will be plenty of room for him, Ljajic has been rumored to be wanting a move away from the capital in hopes of being given more guarantees on playing time. Reportedly, the Champions League runners-up are prepared to offer €14 million for the player’s services, which is €1 million more than what Roma paid just one year ago for him. The Serbian has maintained since the beginning of the summer that he has “come to Roma to stay for a long time”, but despite these statements, the rumors concerning the former Fiorentina man continue to persist.
