Sidibe decision ‘after World Cup’

Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe will make a decision on his future ‘after the World Cup’ amid interest from Atletico Madrid, according to reports.

Earlier this month, Marca cited a report in L’Equipe stating the two clubs were in advanced negotiations for the French full-back, with a deal expected before the World Cup began.

Get French Football News cite a report in Nice-Matin that the defender is yet to make a decision, and a transfer would be priced in the region of €30-35m.

The 25-year-old helped Monaco to the 2016/17 Ligue 1 title and their run to the semi-finals but was one of the regulars from that side not to leave last summer.

Sidibe made his Ligue 1 debut with Troyes as a 17-year-old and has gone on to play for Lille before joining Monaco two seasons ago.

He could be the third incoming of the summer for Diego Simeone’s side following the arrival of midfielder Rodri from Villarreal and forward Thomas Lemar, also of Monaco.
