Gabi automatically renews with AtletiFebruary 7, 2018
Atletico Madrid midfielder Gabi will see his contract at the club renewed until June 2019, according to various reports.
The club captain has been free to discuss terms with potential suitors since the turn of the year, but he is close to playing his 25th match of the season, all with a minimum of 30 minutes playing time, which would mean his contract is renewed automatically.
Having joined the club as a youngster, Gabi developed through the various youth teams, enjoying two loans spells with Getafe and Real Zaragoza before holding down a first team place.
Having featured in over 350 games for Atleti, Gabi is now set to sign a new deal with his expected contractual deal due to be reached this coming weekend.
Whilst Gabi is expected to remain at the club – the trio of Juanfran, Miguel Angel Moya and Fernando Torres are unsure of their future.
Juanfran could be offered a new deal but it is expected that both Moya and club legend Torres will be allowed to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.
Reports in Spain on Wednesday morning claim that Atleti are in the process of reaching new deals with Thomas Partey and Angel Correa, whilst Sime Vrsaljko agreed a new deal last week.
