Diogo Jota It is one of those strange cases that football leaves us. One of those transfer cases that they did not make their debut with the team that signed them but then they have developed their career in a remarkable way. A case of a footballer who in several years has doubled in value.
Diogo Jota, of not making his debut with Atlético as an important player in the Premier
The Portuguese footballer arrived at Atlético de Madrid in the summer of 2016 in exchange of 7,2 million euros after a great season in the Paços Ferreira, where he had scored 14 goals in 35 matches. After making the preseason, Simeone decided to transfer it to Porto where he was to coincide with Nuno. Diogo Jota had a good season in the Portuguese team but despite this, Atletico decided to cede it again with a purchase option 14 million Wolverthampton, club insisted for him at the request of Nuno who had just signed for English.
Nuno trusted him from the beginning as he had already done in Porto and Jota triumphed first in the Championship and then for several seasons in the Premier with ‘Los Lobos’. So much so that even being in the second category of English football, the Wolves in January exercised the option to purchase 14 million to keep it in property.
A curious case without a doubt since the player he did not play an official match with Atlético. Even so, the economic benefit for the Madrid entity was evident since it paid 7 for it and sold it for 14, but it seems a small amount compared to the subsequent appreciation of the player that Liverpool paid for 50 million euros in September 2020. With a dream debut with a goal included, It seems that Diogo Jota is going to continue giving a lot to talk about in English football. Maybe someone at Atlético is thinking because they didn't have some patience with this player.
