The Metropolitano are looking for a right-back and one of the favourites is Nahuel Molina. For the Udinese player they have already offered 20 million euros, a figure that was not enough to convince the Italian club.
Atletico had faith that, with the passage of time, the club would give in and open up to negotiate for Nahuel Molina. Nothing could be further from the truth.
'AS' claims that Udinese are holding firm. If Atletico want the winger, they will have to pay 30 million euros. He won't leave for less.
The red and white club will not enter into any bidding for him with Juventus, the other big club interested in the defender. Nor do they intend to pay the money Udinese are demanding.
Atletico's 'option B' is Jonathan Clauss. Lens would ask for him for around 20 million, exactly the same as the Madrid club offered Udinese for Nahuel Molina.
