Rodrigo De Paul became one of the great signings in the transfer market after being announced as a new Atlético Madrid player. The footballer, who was one of the figures of the Argentine National Team, was transferred in exchange for 35 million euros and signed for the next five seasons.

In the last year in Serie A, De Paul had spectacular numbers and was considered one of the best midfielders in the Italian league. He was the most dribbler of the tournament with 182 dribbles, of which 122 were successful, and the player who has won the most one-on-one duels, with a total of 289. His vertical game also made him the second footballer who received the most fouls in the championship, with 126.

However, it is not only that. In the Argentine national team, he is, together with Lionel Messi, the main asset of the team. In fact, it is said that he finally got the partner, which for so many years he did not have. The game goes through him, and the responsibility does not weigh on him. On the contrary, he plays and makes his teammates play.

His time at Atlético Madrid has only just begun, and he still doesn't have much analysis. However, those who know about football say that the Argentine made the ideal team. The Simeone way of playing adapts precisely to what he is used to, and without a doubt, he will be one of the outstanding midfielders of the year, as has happened with N'Golo Kanté.
