Inter: Arias for Vrsaljko?
Arias does not live his best moments at Atlético de Madrid. Erased for a month from Simeone’s plans (five games in a row in the stands, since the round of 16 against Liverpool), his future as a rojiblanco is turning blue-dark-almost-black. There are already several clubs that have called the Wanda Metropolitano asking about their situation. Everton from the Premier, Naples from Calcio. In the last hours a third is added. It is Inter Milan And it is curious: it is the club that last season disdained the purchase option on Sime Vrsaljko, at the time yielded there by Atlético, for his serious knee injury. A Vrsaljko that in this 2019-20 was not in any plan and eight months later seems to have taken the place of Arias. An Arias who could now occupy the place that the Croatian had in the Italian team. Atlético also came once Vrsaljko left for Milan. Because their paths crossed. Arias had been the best right back that season 2017-18 in the Dutch league, for his performances at PSV. Vrsaljko was gone after standing out only at times and dragging a knee problem. Arias never managed to snatch Juanfran’s place, as the Croatian had not managed either. Juanfran ended his contract last season and went to Brazil. The 19th man of the CholoArias stayed but had a particular preseason, with Giménez, for the Copa América, and his entry into the team occurred late, when Trippier, signing, was already the undisputed owner, owner and lord of the red and white right wing. Arias did not make his debut until September 25, when the matches started Wednesday-Sunday and he has barely played 23% of the minutes in the League (550 ‘, 869’ in total). At the moment he is the 19th player for Simeone, according to the minutes played, without ever, in his season and a half as a rojiblanco, he has truly shown his best qualities in Atlético.
