Atletico Madrid’s Matteo Moretto provides latest on Matt O’Riley transfer following Celtic’s rejection of €23m bid

Introduction to the article:
Atletico Madrid’s bid for Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley has caused a stir in the football world, but the Scottish champions have rejected their offer. Despite this setback, Atletico’s interest in O’Riley has brought attention to his talent and raised questions about his future.

Atletico Madrid’s bid for O’Riley

Atletico Madrid surprised many with their bid for Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley, offering a loan deal with an obligation to buy for €23m in the summer. However, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has made it clear that O’Riley is not for sale in the winter transfer window, leaving Atletico’s offer in limbo.

Atletico’s unlikely return with an improved offer

According to Matteo Moretto, Atletico Madrid is unlikely to return with an improved offer for O’Riley until the summer. Any potential move for O’Riley would also depend on the departure of another midfielder from Atletico, which is not currently on the cards.

Implications for Celtic and O’Riley’s future

Celtic fans can breathe a sigh of relief for now, as their club has rebuffed Atletico’s interest in O’Riley. However, with other European clubs also eyeing the talented midfielder, Celtic may face a battle to keep him in the summer transfer window. Atletico’s interest has also raised awareness of O’Riley’s abilities on the continent, potentially increasing his appeal to other clubs.
