Geoffrey Edwin Kondogbia (born 15 February 1993) is a professional footballer who plays for La Liga club Atlético Madrid and the Central African Republic national team as a defensive midfielder.

He can also play as a central defender or left back.

Kondogbia started his career at Lens, then signed with Sevilla at the age of 19. In 2013 he was bought by Monaco for €20 million, and then by Inter Milan for €31 million two years later. He returned to Spain in 2017 to play for Valencia, and in 2020 moved to Atlético Madrid.

Kondogbia earned 57 caps for France across its youth levels, before making his debut for the senior team in 2013. In August 2018, he was cap-tied to the Central African Republic by switching his allegiance, and made his debut for its national team in an official match shortly after.

Atlético Madrid
On 3 November 2020, Kondogbia joined Atlético Madrid on a four-year contract. The club was granted an exception to sign him outside of the transfer window after Arsenal had met the release clause of Thomas Partey on deadline day.
