Atletico Madrid's attacking options both intriguing and plentiful

New Atletico Madrid signing Jackson Martinez has said that his new team can challenge Barca and Real for the Spanish title.

As Atletico Madrid strolled to a second consecutive 2-0 friendly win in preseason, this time against Real Oviedo on Tuesday, Diego Simeone will have come away a great deal more satisfied than with Saturday's victory over Numancia.

While you can never read too much away into a friendly game, the manner in which Los Rojiblanco's new look forward line performed certainly bodes well for the upcoming season.

Interestingly enough, the side looked much more comfortable having reverted to their 4-4-2...

Young talent shines for Atletico Madrid in preseason opener

New Atletico Madrid signing Jackson Martinez has said that his new team can challenge Barca and Real for the Spanish title.

Atletico Madrid got their preseason preparations underway on Sunday in efficient, if unspectacular fashion with a 2-0 victory over second-tier Numancia.

Los Colchoneros put out a strong team, however a few weeks on the beach and a relatively late first friendly match showed as the side initially struggled to click into gear with both teams playing out a drab goalless first half.

Atleti lined up in a new-look 4-3-3 system with Koke taking a central role in the middle of the park alongside Tiago...

Diego Simeone's 2015-16 Atletico Madrid taking shape

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner is surprised by the reports that Filipe Luis is heading back to Atletico Madrid with Chelsea having no back-up plan for Azpilicueta.

On Friday Atletico Madrid completed their final training session before their first preseason friendlies against Numancia and Oviedo on home soil. Following those two affairs, the team heads out for a whirlwind tour to China to face Sagan Tosu and Shanghai; such are the perils of modern football.

As so often the case, it has been a summer of change at Atleti, however this time things have been different and there is an air of optimism at the club. There has been an emphasis on player recruitment...

Stefan Savic a savvy signing for Atletico Madrid's future

The ESPN FC crew respond to your questions in regards to why Craig Burley has not made a big deal about the Fabian Delph saga and how many goals Fernando Torres will score next season.

Atletico Madrid's signing of Stefan Savic was confirmed earlier this week, and while it may not have caused many shockwaves around Europe, it is a canny capture that further illustrates just how manager Diego Simeone is building for the future.

After emerging as one of the best defensive prospects in Europe at Partizan Belgrade, he was snapped up by big-spending Manchester City in 2011 as a 20-year-old. Despite the fact a lot was expected of Savic, things never quite happened for him in England....

Atletico Madrid's new transfers face trial by fire in early La Liga fixtures

Jackson Martinez has agreed to join Atletico Madrid and becomes the latest talented striker to grace the Vicente Calderon.

With the additions of Luciano Vietto, Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco and now Jackson Martinez, the summer could not be going any better for Atletico Madrid. They have received good money for some older players, a couple of whom were surplus to requirements.

Thus far Los Colchoneros have managed to hold on to the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Koke, Jan Oblak et al, putting their faith predominantly in a core of youth.

It was therefore too much to ask that the fixture list fall kindly and allow Diego Simeone's...

Vietto, Oliver and Gimenez lead Atletico Madrid's youthful direction

Oliver, 20, should be part of a new-look Atletico Madrid midfield that features Saul and Koke.

Despite the summer starting with links and transfer leaks concerning the likes of seasoned pros Carlos Tevez, Thiago Motta and Edinson Cavani, Atletico Madrid have gone full circle with their business so far.

What is becoming apparent is that Diego Simeone, who in March signed a new deal that lasts until 2020, and sporting director Jose Luis Perez Caminero look to be building a young, exciting squad with one eye very much on the future, rather than the here and now.

It is vital that the club...
