Lemar’s situation remains complicated
Atletico Madrid fans whistled Thomas Lemar when he was about to come off the bench for the last three minutes of the game against Granada last Saturday.
The Frenchman came close to departing the club in January and he has recently fully recovered from an injury that sidelined him for a month.
His situation at the club remains complicated as he has yet to meet the fans’ expectations or live up to his transfer price.
Lemar moved from Monaco for 72 million euros in exchange for 70 percent of his rights to become what was Atletico’s record transfer at the time.
Following Yannick Carrasco’s signing and with the injured forwards close to returning to action, it is doubtful whether the Frenchman will have many more opportunities between now and the end of the season.
Against Granada, Atletico had a bench full of youngsters, yet Lemar featured for just a few minutes.
