Agent: Akale keen on Atletico Madrid move

The agent of Auxerre winger Kanga Akale admits the Ivory Coast international is keen on a move to Atletico Madrid.

Roger Boli said: “Akale is desperate to play for Atletico, but it will have to be next season. Auxerre does not want to lose to him for now and we, although he wants to go to Spain, will not force the issue.

“I hope Atletico continue to follow him as Akale does not want to let the opportunity to play for as big a club as Atletico to slip through his hands.”
