Striker Rodrigo Moreno was supposed to be joining Atletico Madrid this summer, but his move to Wanda Metropolitano fell through.

Spanish striker Rodrigo Moreno has been playing professionally since 2009.

He came out of the Real Madrid youth system to play with the C and B teams in 2009.

And one year later he was debuting professionally with Benfica.

He was loaned twice: to Bolton Wanderers in 2010, and Valencia in 2014.

The Spanish La Liga team liked him so much, that the next year they bought his services.

And during the summer transfer window, they were trying to sell him to Atletico Madrid to replace Angel Correa, but Los Colchoneros and AC Milan failed to reach an agreement and he is now staying put.

“These things happen in the world of football,” Rodrigo told Marca.

“All I can say is that I’m fine, I’m happy where I am.”

“I’ve spent five years at my club, the club that I love and I know that the fans really want me,” he added.

“We achieved something very important last season and from Monday onwards, [I’m] hungry to achieve the objective again this season.”

“Obviously I’m happy for the performance for the national team and to keep coming here because it’s very important for me to represent Spain,” he said.

“Let’s continue and give it everything.”
