5.- Thomas Lemar

After a completely failed debut season with the Colchoneros, it’s safe to say that winger Thomas Lemar isn’t happy with the way things have gone for him at Atletico Madrid and he could easily be one of the players who can follow Lucas Hernandez’s footsteps.
The former AS Monaco player came with the intention of giving the Colchoneros a whole new aspect of the game that Diego Simeone usually doesn’t explore, which was the main pull that the club used to sign him last summer.
As the season progressed, Thomas realized that Simeone simply doesn’t know how to play offensive football and he knows that he can’t grow his best capabilities with this manager.
So why stay if he can play anywhere he wants?
