Diego Capel Interested in Atletico Madrid Move

Sporting Lisbon winger Diego Capel has admitted that it would be hard to turn down a move to Spain's Copa Del Rey champions Atletico de Madrid.

The Liverpool target has been linked to a move back to the La Liga after moving to Lisbon from Sevilla in 2011.

In an interview with Spanish news daily AS, Capel said, "It always makes you proud when you are linked to such great clubs as Atletico,"

"I always want to continue growing and that is a great club.

"Now I do not know what will happen in the future, but any player would like to play there."

Capel was linked with a move to England when he was with Sevilla as Tottenham and Arsenal showed interest, but he instead joined Sporting in 2011.

"It has been another good year for me in Portugal, but now I am disconnected from it all in Ibiza,"

The 25-year old made 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring 5 goals and making 9 assists.
