Atalanta captain Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gomez is reportedly ready to turn down a huge contract with Al-Nassr.
The offer has been on the table for several days now and Atalanta decided to give the player an opportunity to consider the proposal.
The club would pocket €15m from his sale, but above all Gomez is given a contract worth €7.5m per year, plus bonuses and additional benefits, such as use of a luxury home.
However, Tuttomercatoweb and L’Eco di Bergamo newspaper report that after considering it, Gomez has decided to remain in Bergamo.
Atalanta are in the Champions League for the second year running and have just revamped their stadium, which was given the UEFA all-clear to host games from this season.
