Atletico Madrid are a great outfit who have always been known for possessing world-class striker in their roster. Forwards like Falcao, Diego Costa, Torres and Aguero have risen to prominence at the Madrid-based club. Currently, Los Rojiblancos have two very good goalscorers in the form of Griezmann and Mandzukic. While Griezmann had an amazing first season for the club, Mandzukic proved to be a disappointment in his debut season. The signing of Carlos Tevez and Luciano Vietto will be ideal in such circumstances. However, the two Argentine forwardsa arrival may force Mandzukic out the exit door.
