Football Leaks reveals Atletico Madrid sold 30% of Koke for €3m in 2013


“Football Leaks” today revealed their latest player contract featuring young Atletico Madrid star Jorge Resurrección Merodio AKA Koke.

The Spanish club sold 30% of the rights to midfielder Koke to a company based in the Republic of Ireland for only €3m.

Aged 24, Koke has been one of the first names on the team sheet since Diego Simeone took over in 2011 and has been part of Atletico Madrid’s most successful period in recent history.

He bagged a delightful assist for Fernando Torres on Tuesday night as Simeone’s men were beaten 2-1 by Champions League favourites Barcelona.

Koke renewed his deal at Vicente Calderon in 2014, until 2019, and the Irish company had the right to maintain their share of his contract or receive compensation for their percentage, with all rights returning to Atletico. It’s not revealed what option was taken.
