Robbie Dunne (@robbiejdunne) is a sports journalist based in Madrid and a site manager at Into the Calderón. He joins fellow ItC site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) for the final preseason Colchonero Chat, breaking down Atlético Madrid’s 2-1 win over Juventus on Saturday.
Jeremy and Robbie start, however, with the latest on Atlético’s move for Valencia forward Rodrigo Moreno — which, at the time of recording, is nearly complete. The podders contemplate the surprising move, the chaos at Mestalla, where the Spain international will play (or how often) and the effect his potential transfer will have on Ángel Correa.
Then, the guys properly dive into the Juve friendly, João Félix’s awesomeness and the surprise packages behind refreshed Atlético’s undefeated preseason. Finally, they preview the upcoming league season, trying their best to figure out the top six, the relegation candidates and more.
