The situation

Wass’s history at Atletico aims to be brief and not very intense . The 32-year-old Dane arrived in January with the mission of filling the gap left by Trippier and an injury took him out of the plans as soon as he started. Between one thing and another, Simeone has not been completely convinced and the footballer has many ballots to leave the club just half a year after signing him. He will have offers, but Atleti will barely be able to recover a small part of his investment. Only if Vrsaljko did not renew and nothing appeared on the market could the plan change. In competition, Wass’ balance as a rojiblanco is limited to the second half of the game at the Camp Nou , on February 6. The Dane came on after the break and ended the game injured: a grade II sprain of the internal collateral ligament in his right knee . As a consequence, 53 days off and nine games out of the team . And when he returned, the train was going too fast for him to get on, as Simeone explained before the end of the League : “I spoke with him to explain what I see, what happened after his arrival and his injury and his poor rhythm of play . He couldn’t have continuity with which I saw him better… ” . A complicated paradox for the Dane in the decisive section of the course.

Free in 2023 and thinking about the World Cup

Wass arrived at Atletico in exchange for the 2.7 million that Valencia demanded (where he was free this June) and signed as a rojiblanco until 2023 . In other words, after this unsuccessful half-year, he is entering the last year of his contract . Therefore, it will not be easy to find an interested club that makes a strong investment for him. Perhaps he can enter into talks for Carlos Soler with Wass’s former club. The player himself acknowledged last month that he had considered returning to Denmark this summer, to Brondby, but Atlético’s proposal made him change his mind. Maybe I’ll have that option on the table again. In addition, the theme of the World Cup appears. Wass is now with Denmark, with whom he played his first minutes last night in four months, but if he does not have continuity in his club, his presence in Qatar could be in danger. That’s why the player also thinks about his rojiblanco future…
