Atletico gets closer to Molina as successful negotiations goes on

reports Atletico Madrid is closing in on the signing of Nahuel Molina from Udinese. Molina, an Argentina regular at the age of 24, played 37 games for Udinese in the Serie A last year and contributed 8 goals and 5 assists.

The outlet reports that people close to the deal believe it will be done soon as it’s understood they made significant progress in talks with Udinese yesterday afternoon.


However, the asking price may be the deal-breaker for the La Liga side as Molina is under contract with Udinese until 2026, and the club is demanding €30 million to release him. Molina would require the club to spend a large portion of its transfer budget.

It’s earlier been reported that


was also interested in signing the Argentine. Since arriving in he’s contributed ten goals and ten assists for Udinese in the 68 appearances he’s made across all competitions.
