Representatives from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will meet next week to negotiate a deal for David Villa.
Mundo Deportivo believe that the striker held talks with the capital club last Thursday near his hometown of Llangreu.
It is not clear how close the 31-year-old and Diego Simeone’s men are to agreeing a contract.
But the Barcelona-based newspaper insist the Rojiblancos will discuss a deal with the Blaugrana later next week.
Villa has been heavily linked with a move away from Camp Nou this summer, with Tottenham and Arsenal also said to be interested.
