Man Utd and Chelsea will battle for Atletico fullback

Diego Simeone: We must win

Chelsea and Manchester United have launched a battle to sign Atletico Madrid fullback Jose Gimenez.

According to AS, both English clubs are in contact with the 22-year-old defender, who has welcomed their approach.

The Uruguay international has seen his career stall this season as Atletico manager Diego Simeone has chosen other options to partner Diego Godin at the heart of his defence.

Red Devils head coach Jose Mourinho, particularly, has been in regular contact with Gimenez’s camp and there’s a belief Atletico will be ready to sell this summer.
