The situation

Four seasons ago Thomas Lemar arrived at Atlético with a band that became a shackle on his feet : the most expensive signing in the club’s history until that summer, that of 2018, in which the rojiblanco club paid 70 million for his incorporation into Monaco. He also came with a recommendation. That of his friend, compatriot and teammate, Antoine Griezmann, who was renewing that period in which he was proclaimed world champion and after recording The Decision , a documentary in which he announced, to the NBA, that his choice between Atlético and Barcelona, it was “stay” (a year later he would leave, but that’s another story). Lemar arrived and shone. Forever, his Super Cup against Real Madrid in Tallinn, where he decorated each play with confetti and exclamations.And that’s it. Because Lemar began to weigh the shirt, the money it had cost and he went out to each game as if writing his goodbye to the rojiblanco club . He didn’t give one, as if entangled in his own anxiety. Three goals that 2018-19 season, zero the next, 2019-20 and one constant: Simeone did not lose faith in him. And he put him there. And he put him. And he put him there. He put him there even though few understood it. “You don’t see how he trains”, slide people who do, from day to day on the Hill . That’s why Simeone believed: because in training, without an audience, without the growing buzz around him, Lemar was once again the Lemar who signed up.

You have not responded to a renewal offer

Because the Lemar of 2020-21 was the one who signed, differential, as if playing without an audience that pressure that blocked his legs, that did not allow him to stand out, to play, had disappeared. One of the outstanding footballers of that Atlético, he acted as a glue between the center of the field and the forward . There was talk again of his brutal class and not of him as a failed signing. Atlético was proclaimed champion of the League and his performance had to do with that title achieved in Valladolid, last day.
