Premier League duo get boost in pursuit of Atletico Madrid star

first_img Atletico Madrid and Uruguay star Cristian Rodriguez QPR and Sunderland have been boosted in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid ace Cristian Rodriguez after he was shunted further down the pecking order by the signing of Cani.The La Liga champions landed the 33-year-old on loan from Villarreal this week and now sources in Spain have indicated that could mean Rodriguez departs.The 29-year-old has been a peripheral figure for Atletico already this season playing just 63 minutes of league action so far and the arrival of Cani looks set to marginalise him further.But that could come as good news for both QPR and Sunderland who have been linked with January moves for the Uruguayan, who has been nicknamed ‘The Onion’.Spanish newspaper AS has suggested that the decision about a departure now rests with the player, who has started just 14 league games since arriving from Porto in May 2012. 1last_img read more
