There has been a lot of talks these weeks about the possible departure of Ivan Saponjic as a loan officer in this winter market and it seems that it can finally materialize. There have been several teams from both First and Second who have asked at the Atletico offices about the Serbian striker. Although his name was indeed strongly related to Celta, it finally seems that Cadiz will be the one that will take over Ivan’s services. A loan that could close this week.
The team led by Alvaro Cervera seeks to strengthen the offensive zone to give Negredo and Choco Lozano more rest. Thus enhancing a forward that has added 6 goals to date, three each. The arrival of Saponjic would be supported by the references that Atlético himself has made to Cádiz. The rojiblancos believe that a loan in a Primera team could be key to reveal the potential of the 23-year-old forward.
From the first moment, the idea was to find a First team that could satisfy both Atlético and Saponjic himself, so some Second Second proposals were ruled out. The intention of both the club and the footballer is to add a few minutes that he has not been able to enjoy at Atlético since his arrival.
Now, it seems that Cadiz has advanced in the race for the loan of the Serbian to Celta and that the former Benfica player will play if the yellow operation ends until the end of the season.
