Wass’s history at Atlético aims to be brief and not very intense. The 32-year-old Dane arrived in January with the mission of filling the gap left by Trippier and an injury took him out of the plans as soon as he started. between one thing and another, Simeone has not been completely convinced and the footballer has many ballots to leave the club just half a year after his signing. He will have offers, but Atleti you will only be able to recover a small part of your investment. Only if Vrsaljko did not renew and nothing appeared on the market could the plan change.
In competition, Wass’ balance as a rojiblanco is limited to the second half of the Camp Nou game, on February 6. The Dane came on after the break and ended the match injured: grade II sprain of the medial collateral ligament in the right knee. Due, 53 days out and nine games away from the team. And when he returned, the train was going too fast for him to get on, as Simeone explained before the end of the League: “I spoke with him to explain what I see, what happened after his arrival and his injury and his poor rhythm of game. He could not have continuity with which I saw him better…”. A complicated paradox for the Dane in the decisive section of the course.
Simeone opted for Llorente and Vrsaljko for that position (and even used Felipe) and Wass was almost unpublished. And now, in the market, the priority is to find a right back and there are already names on the agenda: Nahuel Molina (Udinese), Clauss (Lens), Maffeo (Mallorca)… The Danish has not entered Simeone through the eye and has the doors open to leave, despite the fact that his versatility could be useful.
Free in 2023 and thinking about the World Cup
Wass arrived at Atlético in exchange for 2.7 million demanded by Valencia (where he was free this June) and signed as rojiblanco until 2023. In other words, after this unsuccessful half-year andntra in his last year of contract. Therefore, it will not be easy to find an interested club that makes a strong investment for him. Perhaps he can enter the talks for Carlos Soler with Wass’s former club.
The player himself acknowledged last month that had considered returning to Denmark this summer, to Brondby, but Atlético’s proposal made him change his mind. Maybe I’ll have that option on the table again. Also, The World Cup theme appears. Wass is now with Denmark, with whom last night he played his first minutes in four months, but if he does not have continuity in his club, his presence in Qatar could be in danger. That’s why the player also thinks about his rojiblanco future…
