It did seem abit rash at the time..he was growing into the solid player he has become..we did have an epic midfield during his time here and in the few years that followed tho so just one of those good players that great clubs look for better than.

As a replacement for Luiz and Mikel (possibly even Lamps) then he might make sense on a short-term contract whilst the younger guys ease their way into the first-team.

Had an amazing season under Simeone and would add quality depth. I would only sign him on top of another quality midfielder though, and if the signing meant to only be a stop gap to give way for Chalobah/RLC the season after.

Surprising, but wouldn't be a bad deal on a free. He's experienced, has played at a very high level for very long, and showed this season that he can still be perform very well despite his age.

Plus, he scored this goal...
