Last night, it was revealed that two Atletico Madrid players in Alvaro Morata and Yannick Carrasco are set to miss out on the upcoming Copa Del Rey game against Almazan due to injuries.

The club have now further confirmed that one more player is set to miss out on the clash, in the form of Sergio Reguilion.

It appears the former Real Madrid star had to be hospitalised on Thursday due to an acute digestive condition. It was confirmed by the club on Friday in an official statement.

“Sergio Reguilon suffers an acute digestive condition for which he had to be admitted to a hospital last night. The evolution of his symptoms will mark his hospital discharge.”

Reguilon’s admission to the hospital this midweek means he will likely be ruled out for the upcoming Copa Del Rey first-round clash against Almazan.

Reguilon’s condition should further derail his progress and continue his unfortunate state of affairs this season.

Since joining the club on a loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, the left-back has indeed had to go through a rough phase, having missed out on a chunk of the campaign due to surgery.

The left-back was fit enough to make the bench against Cadiz and Espanyol earlier this month and even featured for 21 minutes against RCD Mallorca. However, it seems he will have to wait before he can make his first start for Atletico Madrid.

With the World Cup just around the corner, the upcoming break in club football should give Reguilon, who is not part of the Spain squad for the tournament, ample time to recover his fitness, before the second phase of the campaign starts in late December.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid are among the clubs monitoring the progress of UD Almeria striker Marciano Sanca.

The 19-year-old Guinea-Bissau forward joined Almeria from Portuguese outfit Leixoes in January last year, linking up with the club’s B team.

Marciano has made three league appearances Almeria’s reserve team and has not scored a goal yet. The teenager has been training with the first-team setup regularly and Romano claims that he is close to making his debut in La Liga.

While he might not have made a splash at the senior level yet, Marciano seems to be already gathering admirers with Atletico Madrid, Villarreal and Brighton & Hove Albion said to be tracking the youngster.

Los Rojiblancos are set to enter the market for a new centre-forward as Joao Felix is expected to be sold permanently while Alvaro Morata’s future is also not entirely certain.

So even though Diego Simeone has Memphis Depay, Angel Correa, and Morata at his disposal, Atletico Madrid will dive into the market for a new striker with there being links to Mateo Retegui of Boca Juniors, currently on loan at Tigre.

Now, Marciano has also emerged as a potential target or Atletico Madrid, although signing him will not be easy in the summer.

Even though the 19-year-old’s contract expires in 2024, he is bound by a release clause worth €40 million and Almeria intend to keep him at the club beyond this season.

So, the La Liga club might hold out for the entire release clause amount in order to stave off potential suitors like Atletico Madrid, who are not in a position to make such an investment on an unproven youngster.
