Juventus have opened talks with Atletico Madrid defender

Juventus join the race for Atletico Madrid fullback Jose Gimenez.

According to Sportitalia, the 22-year-old’s agent, Paco Casal, has met with the Serie A club sports chief Fabio Paratici about a move to Turin this month.

The defender is viewed at Juve as a replacement for Leonardo Bonucci, who controversially left for AC Milan in July.

Gimenez has stated he’s happy in Spain club, as he enjoys an impressive preseason.

Nonetheless, a move to Juventus could appeal, where Uruguayan legend Paolo Montero made his name.
