Atleti in 'pole position' for Yuri

Atletico Madrid are in ‘pole position’ to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Yuri Berchiche, according to reports in the Spanish press.

El Mundo Deportivo cites a report in Diario Vasco which states Los Rojiblancos are in a strong position to bring the former Real Sociedad left-back in this summer.

Yuri has netted two goals and provided five assists in 29 appearances for the Parisians since his move from La Real to the Ligue 1 champions last summer.

Athletic Club Bilbao also hold an interest in the 28-year-old but may be put off by the quoted price of €30m from France.

The reports would fit with tentative reports that experienced full-back Filipe Luis could exit Atleti this summer for a move to Juventus.
