Atletico Madrid are desperate to find a striker this January as Diego Costa is ruled out with a back injury, and Alvaro Morata needs some help upfront.

Thus, Atletico turned to Paris in search of a new striker.

Edinson Cavani is riding the bench this season after Mauro Icardi’s impressive performances for PSG.

However, the Parisians are keen on keeping the Uruguayan until the end of the season.

This didn’t fit well with Atletico’s plans. So, their president, Gil Marin, traveled to Paris personally to try and convince PSG to let Cavani go.

It could be a saga that goes on until the end of the transfer window.

In the end, Atleti could profit massively by bringing in the renowned striker from PSG.
