While they have spent a lot of money on new recruits, Atletico Madrid are not going to break tradition and will continue giving chances to young players.

The new season is going to offer Atletico Madrid a fresh start to life. After losing the services of the likes of Diego Godin, Juanfran and Antoine Griezmann, Diego Simeone’s side have welcome a glut of fresh recruits.

The likes of Joao Felix, Kevin Trippier and Hector Herrera have arrived and are likely to make the team stronger than it was ever before.

However, a few young players are expected to be given enough chances by Simeone as the team looks towards a new chapter in its illustrious history.

Renan Lodi

The young left-back has come in from Brazilian outfit Atletico Paranaense for a lot of money and would be looking to justify his price tag.

Lodi is seen as a capable replacement for Filipe Luis and is a rather unproven player, having made only 6 appearances in the Copa Libertadores for the Brazilian outfit. Capable of playing as a left-back and as a left winger when required, the youngster is going to add a lot of versatility to the team.
