On this special edition of Colchonero Chat, Into the Calderón manager Jeremy Beren and Into the Calderón staff writer Rob Walker analyze the widely-reported transfer of Sevilla winger Vitolo to Atlético Madrid the stunning U-turn in transfer negotiations between Atlético Madrid, Las Palmas and Sevilla for Vitolo, which has resulted in the player renewing for a second consecutive summer with the Andalusian club.

Jeremy and Rob discuss what went so wrong with a deal that was said to be “closed” last week, including who or what is to blame, Las Palmas’ unnecessary hyping of a potential deal and the Atlético board’s inability to acquire Diego Simeone’s transfer targets, even while under a registration ban. The guys also talk about who has to step up now that the Spain international is staying put.
