Augusto eyeing World Cup

The Argentinean midfielder had found playing time difficult to come by at the Metropolitano this season and had featured for just 522 minutes in all competitions. Diego Simeone opened the door for Augusto to leave and at 31, the midfielder wanted the chance to try and work his way into the plans of Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

Augusto joined Atlético for six million euros in 2016 after impressing consistently at Celta but suffered a serious knee injury shortly after joining and missed the whole of the 2016-17 season.
