Nikola Kalinic, Gelson Martins could be sold by Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid are planning to sell summer signings Gelson Martins and Nicola Kalinic after just six months, according to Marca.

At the heart of the issue is Atleti meeting their capped wage limit of €293m per annum, meaning they are now in a position where they cannot sign new players without selling first.

The club are keen on a January deal for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata but before considering the Spanish international, they must move on at least one player.

Kalinic joined Atleti from Milan in a €15m deal this summer but has started just five La Liga games, netting twice, while Martins, 23, has started just one in the league.
