Partey Rejects New Atletico Madrid Contract
According to a Skysports pundit Guillem Balague, Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has refused to sign a new contract with the LaLiga giants, giving rise to a possible move to Arsenal.
The 26-year-old who is under contract in Madrid until 2023, has apparently told friends he wants to join the North London club but Atletico are keen for him to pen a new deal, and most probably increase his buyout clause.
Balague though insists the Ghanaian international will not sign up, although he swerved whether there had been contact between any English clubs. Since making his debut in November 2015, the defensive midfielder has scored 15 goals in 174 games for Los Rojiblancos.
