Adrián is PresentedBy: Al | July 19th, 2011
Sergio Aguero’s replacement has finally arrived and the squad is practically complete. Adrián Lopez (23) arrives on a free transfer from Deportivo and is signing a four-year deal with the club. He was the top goalscorer at the U-21 Euro with five goals in the tournament.
I’m very excited to start and to work hard because there is an official match soon. I’ve been training this past week because I wanted to be in the best shape possible so that I could train with my teammates. As of today we’ll see how I’m doing but I think that I’m ready to start and hopefully will play in the next match.
He hasn’t had the best of goalscoring records at club level (scored 22 goals total since 2005) but now that he’s in the presence of better players, and is coming off of a hot streak at a tournament, he’ll be likely to succeed as long as he works hard. Our strike force is now complete and this season we’ll be counting on Forlan, Diego Costa, and Adrian, the latter two being players who have extreme potential and are still ready to contribute.
That might do it for the club’s transfers this season. They may sign a few more young players for the youth team or another midfielder (why) but the club’s main transfer list has already been finished.
