Atleti are huge admirers of Le Normand, who will be going with Spain to this summer’s European Championship. A deal could end up being close by the time the tournament starts, as Relevo have reported that contacts have taken place between Los Rojiblancos and La Real. The player himself is keen on the move.

Le Normand has a steep release clause, which is set at €50m. Atleti would prefer to a deal in the region of €30m, whereas La Real are more likely to want in excess of €40m. It would be a significant deal, but it is one that Diego Simeone craves.

It remains to be seen if Atletico Madrid can get a deal over the line for Le Normand. Real Sociedad won’t make it easy, but additionally, they appear open to negotiations.
