Atlético Madrid are making preparations for the possible departure of Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona. The France striker has a release clause of at least €100 million which, if met, will provide Atlético with a substantial fund for a replacement.
Agüero thought to be open to Atleti return
Edinson Cavani, Ángel Di Maria, and Álvaro Morata have been mentioned, and Radio Marca has thrown another name in to the mix: Sergio Agüero.
Atlético have reportedly made initial contact with Agüero’s representatives to ascertain whether he would be interested in a return to the Spanish capital, where he scored 101 goals in 234 matches between 2006-2011. The 29-year-old has spent seven seasons in Manchester but has not enjoyed a particularly warm relationship with Pep Guardiola.
Radio Marca suggests that Agüero could be open to joining Atlético, although he is currently focussed on reaching full fitness in time for the World Cup. Moreover, the LaLiga club may try to complete the signing even if Antoine Griezmann stays put.
