New Atlético Madrid player Geoffrey Kondogbia showed himself a Real Madrid fan during an interview with ‘Téléfoot’ in 2013. “A preference? Since childhood, Madrid”.
Marcos Llorente, Álvaro Morata, Mario Hermoso… all of them played for Real Madrid and ended up at their great rival in the Spanish capital: Atlético Madrid.
Geoffrey Kondogbia’s isn’t the same case, as the 27-year-old CM didn’t play for Madrid, although he did declare his love for the Santiago Bernabéu side in 2013.
“My heart is in Real Madrid. It is always a pleasure to know that you are followed and loved. Real Madrid? It makes me dream but it’s only a rumour right now. A preference? Since I was a child, Real Madrid”, he confessed in an interview in ‘Téléfoot’.
Los Blancos could have signed him during his spell at Sevilla, but the interest went cold and Kondogbia ended up joining Monaco to then go to Inter Milan, Valencia, and as both clubs confirmed on Tuesday, Atlético.
