Berchiche talks with both Athletic, Atletico

A report in RMC Sport claims Paris Saint-Germain defender Yuri Berchiche has agreed personal terms with both Athletic Club Bilbao and Atletico Madrid.

The full-back switched Real Sociedad for the French capital last summer in a €15m move but now PSG are keen to balance their books for UEFA Financial Fair Play demands.

Yuri has netted two goals and provided five assists in 32 appearances for the Parisians since his move from La Real to the Ligue 1 champions last summer.

On Monday, Marca backed up a report in L’Equipe that a €20m move to Athletic is close to fruition and priority has been given to the transfer after a move for Mikel Merino collapsed.

The defender could become the second former La Real defender to join their Basque rivals following Inigo Martinez’s €32m switch in January.
