Wed 16 June 2021 | 7:58

Atletico has started the transfer with energy and intends to attract the Argentine star.

Atletico Madrid

is close to signing Rodrigo Di Paul after a € 35 million offer to Udinese.

The Argentine winger has already traveled to Brazil to play in the Copa América, but it is said that his time at Udinese will end in the summer. With his good performances in Serie A, he has attracted clubs such as Juventus, Inter, Milan, Napoli, Lazio, Roma, and Leeds United. However, Atletico Madrid moved him earlier than the other rivals, and Diego Simeone urged the club to make a special effort for this transfer.

Atletico also listened to Simeone's request and offered 35 million euros plus a bonus clause equal to Udinese's request of 40 million euros.

Di Paul's contract is expected to be for five years, and he will receive an annual salary of 3.5 million euros from Atletico. He has been close to parting ways with Udinese in the past few summers and has always been the subject of rumors, but eventually, he continued his presence at the Dacia Arena.
