Rafa Mir on Atlético Madrid: “I think the way they play suits me very well because of my characteristics.”

Wolves striker Rafa Mir has been linked with a move to Atlético Madrid and the 24-year-old believes he would fit in well at the current LaLiga champions but will wait until after the Tokyo Olympics to discuss his future.

Speaking to AS, Mir said: “Things are happening. I have not asked to know much until the Olympic Games are over. We will see how things progress. I still have one more year at Wolves and calmly we will decide what is best for me.

“I want to be at a place I’m happy like I was at Huesca. I want to feel loved by the people and the club. With those ingredients, I can play at my best. I arrived in England during a difficult situation and then I was injured for a couple of months. My level of English isn’t good, but it’s been improving.

“English football is a style I like and that’s why I chose to go there after Valencia. Things have not gone as I wanted but I think I can do well there. I’m still young and have many more years of my career to go, so we’ll see what happens.”

Asked about the links with Atlético Madrid, Mir added: “They are a great club. I think the way they play suits me very well because of my characteristics. We’ll have to see. Right now I’m focused on the Games. When they come to an end then we will see.”
