Marca say Atletico have to look for a loan deal as after the signings of Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic they lack the finances to complete a permanent deal.

Diego Simeone has identified Soldado as the player he wants to complete his group of strikers and Soldado wants to return to Spain after an unsuccessful debut year in the Premier League.

Contact has been made between the clubs but the move is still at the early stages and Atletico’s financial situation means the transfer will be slow-moving, Marca add.
