Atletico Madrid has already had a productive transfer window with the acquisitions of Javi Galan, Caglar Soyuncu, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Santiago Mourino.
Despite the many successful additions to their squad, Atletico Madrid officials are still actively working on further signings. Atletico’s main focus currently is to secure a new defensive midfielder. Several names, including Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sofyan Amrabat, have been linked to the club, but their top target is Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Marca, Atletico has initiated plans to sign the Italian international. They have already had initial talks with PSG. But the player is valued at €70m, which is currently considered too high for Atletico. Nevertheless, the club hopes that upcoming player sales will provide the necessary funds to pursue Verratti this summer. However, competition for his signature is expected as Liverpool and another unnamed Premier League club are also interested.
Securing a Verratti transfer would be a significant statement signing for Atletico Madrid. Yet, at this stage, it remains a distant possibility. The club is optimistic about generating income through player sales in the coming weeks to implement their plans.
