Atlético Madrid are in talks with Girona for right-back Arnau Martínez, reports Matteo Matteo of Spanish outlet Relevo.
As Relevo pointed out at the end of January, the 20-year-old is keen on the move to the capital and the agreement between him and Atlético will not be an issue in economic terms or in the duration of the contract signed by the parties.
The key point in the negotiation will undoubtedly be what happens between the two La Liga clubs. In recent weeks both parties have intensified talks for the young defender with the aim of reaching an agreement.
As of today, Girona and Atlético still haven’t agreed on a fee, but the sides are optimistic and hope to reach an agreement in the coming weeks.
Martínez played in Girona’s 4-2 win over Atlético’s cross-city rivals Real Madrid on Wednesday night and has been one of the side’s standout performers this season.
