Atalanta Transfer Market: Like Matty Cash from Aston Villa

The side of the Aston Villa followed by the Nerazzurri transfer zone: high price, possible complicated negotiations, but the profile sought corresponds to the characteristics of naturalized Polish English

At the moment it’s more of a suggestion, given the player’s assessment, but it can be used to understand what profiles Atalanta is targeting for the next transfer market: 24-year-old Matty Cash has been closely followed, and obviously he likes. years, right side of Aston Villa. The problem is that naturalized Polish English (who has been playing in Poland since November 2021), after being followed in his time by AC Milan, is now also in the spotlight of other big European names. . Especially Atletico Madrid, who nevertheless asked the Birmingham club for a figure close to 40 million euros. Premier Rating: A little too much for a winger and maybe even for the usual Atalanta standards. As we know, the transfer market of the Nerazzurri club will only take off at the end of the season: the team is still in the race for a place in the next Europe (League or Conference) and Zingonia are all focused on this goal, also because the possible third game of the season will still have its weight to redesign, especially in terms of numbers, the squad. Obviously, the players Gasperini currently has would be too many to play in just the championship and the Italian Cup, but even if Atalanta finished in the top seven, Gasperini would not ask – he never did – for a big group.

The strategy

But although the operational plan has not yet been studied in detail, and the decisive matches are scheduled after May 22, when Percassi’s American partner Steve Pagliuca should also be in Italy, it is clear that the ‘Atalanta has already started moving. The new ds chosen by the Percassis, the Welshman Lee Congerton, has been in Bergamo for a long time and the rumors that the arrival of Tony D’Amico, currently the ds of Verona. The study of the staff, the needs and the opportunities will mark the operative guidelines, but it can already be assumed that the department that will want to strengthen the most is the outside: always cornerstones of Gasperini’s game, which this year has not had since is the decisive contribution of past seasons. Beyond the departure of Gosens, in any case used very little by the serious injury that left him out of the game in late September (with relapse two months later), disappointed especially Hateboer, among other things since he had left . for almost two years, while Maehle’s performance was very fluctuating and Pezzella, ceded by Parma, is unlikely to be drafted. Thus, from the “portfolio” of Lee Congerton, who comes from Leicester after having already worked with Chelsea and Sunderland has a deep knowledge of the Premier market and important contacts, could come the Cash card. Or that of an outsider with the same characteristics.

Who is

Son of art, former father of English footballer (in the minor divisions), Polish mother. Matty Cash is a backhand shooter with a good footing and a “Premier” physique (186 inches and running at will). In short, Gian Piero Gasperini’s football would fit perfectly. Born in 1997, he is in his second year at Aston Villa, having grown up between Wycombe Wanderers, FAB Academy and Nottingham Forest. His senior debut, however, came on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge at the age of 18. Returning to the woods, Cash quickly took his place as a starter and for four seasons was one of the best teams in the Championship, the English Serie B. In 2020 the move to Aston Villa. First year in the Premier League very well, second very well with three goals on the farm. The penultimate, in late February against Brighton, even became a political case, when Cash took off his shirt to send a message of support to his international teammate Kedziora (footballer of Dynamo Kiev), then blocked with his family in Ukraine in the morning. of the Russian invasion. The winger was cautioned and criticized by the Football Association. We were talking about the selection, Cash chose Poland and after a tug-of-war with the Warsaw federation he won the pass for Qatar 2022. Former President Zibi Boniek did not agree, but with the ‘order passed to Cezary Kulesza the doors of Poland has opened. Cash obtained his nationality last October and will presumably go to the World Cup, as he has already been hired four times. Before, who knows, it could become one of the trending names in the summer market.
