On March 23rd, AS reported the likes of Thomas Partey, Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar could be heading out of Atlético Madrid in the summer.

It was also explained that Manchester United ‘seem willing’ to put ‘good money on the table’ for Lemar.

Today’s edition of the same newspaper explains the La Liga side face a threat from the Premier League clubs like United and Arsenal, with the winger mentioned as one of the players on their radar.

Regarding the France international, it’s claimed United have been ‘sounded as a possible destination’ for the player.

Lemar’s contract at the Wanda Metropolitano runs down in 2023 and he has a €190m release clause.

AS reckons the Madrid based club could make his exit easy because the 24-year-old has not convinced Diego Simeone and hasn’t fulfilled his manager’s needs. Therefore, he’s no longer an essential player for the Spanish side.

Apart from United, the report adds Arsenal are also viewed as a possible destination for Lemar.

Should United and Arsenal try to sign Lemar, Atlético will have to offer a discount because it’s highly unlikely the two English clubs would pay his high release clause of €190m.
