There are some offers by English Premier League teams, especially Newcastle United, to buy the MLS footballer

Atlanta United president Darren Eales has told Sky Sports that Miguel Almiron will not be sold cheaply.

“The important thing is we have an owner that is 100 percent behind the team and wants the team to win, and we have a fan base, so we have always said that if the right approach comes in – and it has to be the right offer for the player, the league, and most importantly the club – then we would consider it,” he said.

“I have seen some laughable things in the press, clearly we are never going to loan one of our players out and we are certainly not going to let them go for the ‘chump change’ that I have seen in some reports.”

“If it’s a proper, serious offer then it’s something we would consider, but not for the laughable figures that I have seen mentioned in the press,” he added.
