Juventus forward Paulo Dybala was spotted having dinner alone with Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone.
According to Radio Marca, Simeone was at the table waiting until La Joya arrived at Restaurante Kabuki, where they dined and discussed for the rest of the evening.
Dybala is spending a few days off in Madrid after missing the call-up for Argentina due to recent injury concerns.
There was speculation in the Spanish media this morning that he would meet Real Madrid directors during the trip.
Instead, now the focus has moved across the city to their rivals Atletico Madrid, who may well soon need a replacement for Antoine Griezmann.
