Thomas Lemar has in the spotlight the game next February 1 at Santiago Bernabéu against Real Madrid. Atlético announced on December 31 that the French player suffered a hamstring injury to the right thigh from which he continues to recover, but the process takes time and unless accelerated in his rehabilitation will take him out at least two more weeks. Nevertheless, as in the case of Diego Costa, its value will not be revitalized during the month that the market is open, since physical problems prevent it from playing. Lemar started in Benito Villamarín against Betis (December 22), but after another gray game was the first change of Simeone in search of renewing the attack and at the minute of Correa in the field The Argentine had already opened the score. The ’10’ has been one of the players that with his performance has far exceeded Lemar, although the French started as a starter after improving his pre-season performance. The 24-year-old, second most expensive signing in club history (70 million for 70% of his pass), he was in the spotlight as one of the possible departures of the team in January to make room for a signing up, where Cavani is the one desired by Simeone, but the PSG is not going to facilitate his pass. Equipment like Tottenham or Arsenal They asked about Lemar’s situation, although his offers would not have approached the red and white pretensions. From the beginning of the course Lemar has been seen again, which is not decisive, comes into play and when he does it does not accelerate the pace of the team. After starting in the first five games of the course, some muscular problems separated him from the fields. He returned as a substitute and in total He has left the bench in 11 of his next 16 appearances. Simeone has always given him minutes, he trusts him and his characteristics, but his last goal came in Ipurua, the field that Atlético is visiting this weekend, practically nine months ago (April 20). The Frenchman plays on his return to the team his presence in the next Eurocup, where he is a fixture for Deschamps, but his poor performance can leave him out.
