Atletico Madrid have lined up Argentine centre-back Mateo Musacchio as a potential replacement for Manchester City target Jose Maria Gimenez, reports AS.
Atletico Madrid are well aware that several Premier League clubs, most notably Manchester City, are interested in their 21-year-old Uruguay international defender Gimenez.
Despite Gimenez’s growing number of suitors, Atleti are calm regarding his situation, bearing in mind that he has a €65m buyout clause.
However, they are already considering alternatives and their first-choice target in case he leaves is Villarreal’s Musacchio. Atletico have already enquired about the 25-year-old’s situation.
