Appears we've had a 8m Euro bid rejected for the Atletico Madrid no.2.


Translated article:

Atlético de Madrid has rejected an offer from the English Crystal Palace by Miguel Àngel Moyá. The goal, 33 , has a contract for the remainder of the season and the English side offered eight million euros to get the goalkeeper. The format of the transaction was a compulsory purchase cession of three million now and five at the end of the season with an important chip for the goalkeeper and a year of contract with two more optional.

The offer was rejected yesterday by the rojiblanco set at the request of Diego Pablo Simeone , who has the goalkeeper despite being second behind Jan Oblak. Moyá last year when he had to replace the Slovenian by injury and the coach wants to have two goalkeepers of guarantees although he also has Werner, newcomer and without as much experience as the Balearic.
The confidence of Simeone in Moyá and the impossibility of signing a goalkeeper for the sanction FIFA have been decisive for the continuity of the goalkeeper despite the good conditions offered. Moyá renews with Atlético de Madrid year by year and despite having a superior offer economically and of longer duration , the goal decided to stay also knowing that they can not sign and his exit could be a problem for the club by what the parties gave I would like to thank you for your patience.
In fact, despite being 33 years old, Moyá's offer was half of what Jan Oblak cost in his day, the biggest transfer made by the club mattress by a goalkeeper. Moyá continues with contract until June, there is predisposition to extend it during the season although Cristal Palace does not resign to resume the option in January when the sanction FIFA is finished.

33-year-old 'keeper with no experience of English football for £7.5m. Not ideal.

Bizarre target really and probably waste a time. Why would Atletico sell when they can't buy anyone to replace him?

He's not great. Same weaknesses and strengths as the Hen, really.

Im getting the distinct feeling we are just shopping for cover in the keeper position

Scavenging in the bins outside Tesco Thornton Heath when even the reduced special offers have already been snapped up inside.
