Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to dive into the latest Atlético Madrid transfers and preseason preparations.

The podders break down the acquisitions of Mario Hermoso and Kieran Trippier and how they fit into Diego Simeone’s revamped defense. They wonder whether Atlético got good value for their money and take Colchonero Chat Amigo questions on who lines up where ahead of the new season.

Then, Rob and Jeremy analyze one final bombazo that Atlético are planning — the signing of James Rodríguez. The guys debate where the Real Madrid midfielder would fit and discuss an Ángel Correa exit, the Vicente Calderón land sale and more.
