Atletico Madrid Transfer: Simeone a fan of Naby Keita, Man United could bid £68m for Llorente

Marcos Llorente-Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone a fan of Naby Keita

Atletico Madrid are thought to be interested in signing the Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.

The 26-year-old has had a torrid time at Anfield since his move from RB Leipzig.

His career at the Premier League club has been plagued with injuries, and it will be interesting to see if the Reds decide to cut their losses on him this summer.

According to reports, Diego Simeone is a fan of the Guinean midfielder, and he wants to bring the player to Spain.

Liverpool paid around £53 million for the player back in 2018, and they will want to recoup most of that this summer.

It will be interesting to see if Atletico Madrid can agree on a fee with the Premier League side in the coming months.

Keita can be a top-class player for the Spanish club if he can stay injury-free next season.

Manchester United target Marcos Llorente

Meanwhile, the Spanish outfit could lose Marcos Llorente to ManchesterUnited this summer.

The 26-year-old has been outstanding for the Spanish club this season, and he has 13 goals and 12 assists to his name.

Apparently, Manchester United are preparing a £68 million bid for the Atletico Madrid star, and it remains to be seen whether the Spanish club are willing to sanction his departure.

Llorente has developed into a complete midfielder over the past year, and he will contribute offensively as well as defensively if he joins Manchester United.

It will be interesting to see where he plays if he moves to Old Trafford in the summer. The Red Devils already have Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek at their disposal.
