Atletico Madrid like Milik

Atletico Madrid are battling it out with Juventus for Napoli centre-forward Arkadiusz Milik, whose price-tag is set at €50m.

His contract at the Stadio San Paolo is due to expire in June 2021 and negotiations over an extension have broken down completely.

Juve have been repeatedly linked with the Poland international, as it was Maurizio Sarri in charge of Napoli when Milik made the move.

Their time together was short-lived due to a series of knee problems, but he has fully recovered and scored 12 goals in 22 competitive games this season.

According to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, Juventus face strong competition for Milik’s signature from Atletico Madrid.

Cholo Simeone sees Milik as a strong leader for their attack, combining a hard work-rate with power in the air.
