Jorge Resurrección, better known as Koke, has been a fundamental pillar at Atlético de Madrid for years. The captain and Colchonero youth player has become an icon of the club, but his contract expires on June 30, which has generated speculation and expectations in the world of football.
Historically, Koke has rejected offers from abroad, demonstrating his loyalty to the team that saw him grow up. However, in recent months, a million-dollar proposal from Saudi Arabia has begun to sow doubts in the minds of the Spanish international.
The interested team is none other than Al Shabab, as pointed out by ‘ Todofichajes ‘, the same club that took Yannick Carrasco at the beginning of the season. According to sources close to the player, the offer being handled is 10 million euros net for each of the three seasons that could sign Koke with the Saudi team. This proposal has the endorsement of Belgian winger Carrasco, who maintains a close relationship with Koke.
Replace another former member of the League
As the weeks progress, this option seems to gain strength, and it cannot be ruled out that Koke could make a decision that surprises Atlético de Madrid fans. Al Shabab’s idea would be to replace the experienced Ever Banega with the arrival of the Colchonero captain, trusting in his leadership and experience in the midfield.
However, there is also the possibility that Koke may choose to renew his contract with Atlético de Madrid. This could create a situation in which the Arab club must pay a significant sum to acquire his services, which would benefit the rojiblancos by leaving money in the coffers that they could use to strengthen the team in other positions.
