Atlético Madrid defender Manu Sánchez set to join Osasuna on loan

Atlético Madrid left-back Manu Sánchez is set to join fellow Primera side Osasuna on loan, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The 20-year-old has struggled for minutes this season under Diego Simeone with Renan Lodi and Mario Hermoso operating the left-back berth for the league leaders. The young defender was close to joining the Pamplona outfit in the summer, but Atleti head coach Simeone blocked the deal from going ahead.

Sánchez has played once for Spain U21s.
