It is reported that Atletico Madrid are ready to send highly-rated attacking midfielder Caio out on loan.

The 19-year-old is captain of Brazil's Under 20 team but has been left out of Diego Simeone's squad for the upcoming Audi Cup pre-season tournament in Munich.

As such, it appears that the teenager is set for a temporary move away from the Spanish capital, with Marca claiming one unnamed club from France and another from England are interested in securing his services.

However, Caio is said to prefer the idea of remaining in Spain. This is due to the fact that should he stay in his current country of residence for another eight months, he would stand to gain dual nationality next March.

In any case, it appears the young starlet's immediate future will be away from the the Rojiblancos.
