Throughout the last season, a constant concern in the Atletico Madrid dressing room was the lack of a potent striker. While there were several options at Diego Simeone’s disposal, in theory, underperformance became a constant issue.

According to reports from Paulina Benavente, Los Rojiblancos have signed Atletico San Luiz striker German Berterame. While his future is not yet clear, he is expected to turn up for pre-season under Diego Simeone.

Depending on his performances in training and in pre-season, Berterame can make the move to Atletico Madrid’s senior team or continue in the youth league for a while.

The Argentine’s contract with the Mexican club ends on June 30th, and one would expect his move to the Wanda Metropolitano to be on a free transfer. However, his signing has not been officially announced by the club and the exact economics involved are unknown.

In 20 Liga MX Clausura starts in the recent season, Berterame scored eight goals and provided four assists. His nine goals in Liga MX Apertura take his goal tally to 17 in the past season.

Luis Suarez is set to leave Los Rojiblancos in the coming summer, with the player having already said his farewell. Further, Angel Correa’s future at the club is in the air too as the player wishes for a change in scenery.

In such a scenario, the goal-scoring responsibilities will likely fall on the shoulders of Matheus Cunha and Berterame next season. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if the player manages to seamlessly make the transition to La Liga.

Coming off a highly controversial game against Almeria, Real Madrid will now travel to Gran Canaria to take on Las Palmas tomorrow as part of the early kick-off.

Carlo Ancelotti spoke about the clash tomorrow, starting off by confirming his goalkeeper for tomorrow, “Lunin will start tomorrow.”

He also added that Madrid were looking to get back to their usual level after back-to-back poor performances, one of which included elimination against Atletico Madrid in the Copa del Rey round of 16.

“We are motivated to return to our best level after 2 bad games.”

The Italian gaffer also commented on the biggest football story in the world today, which was Jurgen Klopp announcing his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

“It’s quite surprising, I understand. Working for a long time with the same club and players lowers your motivation a bit. He’s doing a fantastic job at Liverpool.”

And of course, Ancelotti also spoke about the leaked VAR audiovisual, some of which are highly controversial for all parties involved. Barcelona coach and players have also commented on the same, in light of the Negreira case.

“They have talked a lot. Everyone knows what has happened in the last 20 years in Spanish football. The Civil Guard is carrying out an investigations. That is the real problem of Spanish football.”

Luckily for the manager and fans, all injured players — minus the ACL trio of David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois — are available. Jude Bellingham is suspended, however.

“Everyone is available now after the recent period of injuries.”

“Making up for Bellingham’s absence tomorrow? Brahim and Joselu are available options. They were able to show themselves after I relied on them as substitutes,” he added.

And as far as Militao and Courtois are concerned, both of whom tore their ACL early in the season, Ancelotti suggested that they could make their return before the season ends.

“Courtois and Militão both have the option to play this season. The recovery process is going very well, they are training on an individual level. It is February and these types of injuries last 6-8 months, so I think they will recover before the end of the season.”
