It is no secret los Colchoneros are looking for midfield reinforcements and they seem to have made Chelsea youngster Kevin De Bruyne their number one target.
However, Atletico also have a plan B if the Blues refuse to let the Belgian leave, as they are reportedly keen on AC Milan midfielder Bryan Cristante.
The 18-year-old, who was handed a Champions League debut some two years ago, is regarded as one of the hottest prospects to have come out through club’s youth academy in recent years.
Nevertheless, he has failed to play himself into the first team plans of Max Allegri and only made one substitute appearance for the senior side this season.
Atletico Madrid currently sit tied on points with mighty Barcelona at the top of La Liga and they are 7/1 to win the league trophy.
