Joining the list of Freiburgers leaving in the summer should by their teenager CB Ginter. He has a buy out around 5-7 mil and the list of clubs interested in him is already pretty long with Leverkusen, Gladbach, Schalke and Dortmund keep tabs on the kid. Hopefully he either joins Kruse with Gladbach or goes to Leverkusen. He's young but he's ready to start for a club of that level and start racking up european experience.
A report in Spanish newspaper Marca on Wednesday claimed United were in advanced talks over a deal and now there are rumours that the Colombia international could make arrive in a deal that will see Javier Hernandez used as part-exchange.
I could see that happening. Chicha's somewhat onedimensional and works best as a sub but he's too expensive/good for that role. Welbeck can be used in more roles (I wish scorer was one one of them...) and it wouldn't disturb the bench all too much.
Yep, its a good deal for Atletico too. They get to replace Falcao with a young player who is just as capable of scoring goals. Not on Falcao's level yet but he's improving every year. I'd hate to see him leave but like you said he's been more effective coming from the bench and is not as versatile as Welbeck.
