Salvio not going to Atletico in January

Lanus striker Eduardo Salvio will not be joining Spanish club

Atletico Madrid before the summer, according to the Argentine

club’s president.

Nicolas Russo told Marca newspaper that the Argentina striker

was “definitely” staying at the club because the two teams could

not agree on a transfer price.

Russo says that Salvio would stay to help the team’s Copa

Libertadores campaign but that Atletico would have first priority

in signing the 19-year-old in June.

Salvio made his debut with Argentina this year.
