Andrea Berta, sports director of Atlético de Madird, has put on Cholo Simeone’s table the name of a covered player to take over the right back: Josip Juranovic.
The Croatia international would fill the vacancy left by his compatriot, Sime Vrsaljko, who is leaving at the end of his contract. The 26-year-old defender plays for Celtic, a team in which he has established himself as one of the most decisive lanes in European football.
After assessing all the options, Emerson Royal, Bellerín, etc… are really economically unfeasible operations for the rojiblanca entity, which right now prioritizes reinforcing the midfield and the attack, so adding a low-cost guarantee lane would fit into the plans .
Juranovic has doubled his value in the last year, but the truth is that right now his signing at the best moment of his career would not exceed €5M.
The conversations have begun and if some of the interested parties are not transferred, they will seek to close the signing of the Croatian.
