Cristian Rodriguez (left): May leave Atletico Madrid

The 28-year-old has failed to make a single start this season for Diego Simeone's side and was heavily linked with a move away in the January transfer window.

His agent, Daniel Delgado, had told Spanish newspaper AS that they were 'working with a very important offer from England, but a move failed to materialise'.

The Uruguayan has expressed his dismay at the club and insists he will leave if he continues to be left out of Atletico's starting XI.

"I can't feel happy without playing," he told Lancenet.

"I am feeling well here because the team are doing well, but on a personal level I am not happy because I want to play."

"I always train quietly, without complaining. The team comes first to me, then my team-mates and only then comes me," he added.

"If I don't play, I'll have to leave."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
