Atalanta have confirmed that three of their most wanted players will not be sold during the summer months.
The Bergamo club are a popular supermarket for other sides, but chief Antonio Percassi insists their key men will remain.
“Striker German Denis is not for sale,” he stated. “He is a reference point for our team. Goalkeeper Andrea Consigli and attacking midfielder Maxi Moralez will also stay.
“The squad is ready for the season ahead. We have the right amount of adrenalin and we are calmer than in the past few seasons as we won’t start the year with a points penalty.
“However, it is going to be a tough season.”
