Atletico Madrid have reportedly reopened negotiations with Adrian Lopez over signing a new contract.
The attacking winger’s current deal only expires in June 2015, but he was originally in talks over extending it as far back as last summer.
However, in seeing the player stall through to the autumn, negotiations tailed off just as the player struggled for form on the pitch.
On from Diego Simeone’s reported determination to club officials that the 25-year-old is not sold, AS understand that Atleti have resolved to try and tie him down to a new deal again.
