Atleti set to sell Augusto

Atletico Madrid are willing to listen to offers for out-of-favour holding midfielder Augusto Fernandez this month, according to reports.

The 31-year-old joined Los Rojiblancos from Celta Vigo in January 2016 but a cruciate ligament injury eight months later has curtailed his career.

A report in Marca now indicates the holding midfielder – who has been left out of Atleti’s last three matchday squads – could be sold by the Madrid-based club this month.

Luciano Vietto has already departed the club this month on loan to Valencia while others are expected to follow after the arrivals of Diego Costa and Vitolo.
