Atlético have made it clear that whatever happens between now and August 31st, they will not be listening to any offers for José Giménez. A number of Europe's top  clubs have made enquiries for the Uruguayan centre-back but Simeone is counting on him for the new season - along with Godín, Savic, and Lucas.

The club has refuted claims that they have put a price on the player - denying reports that they have slapped a 46 million euro price tag on Giménez, when the defender's release clause is 65 million.
