Atletico Madrid return to Benfica for another striker

Atletico Madrid look to not be done dealing with Benfica just yet as less then a week after acquiring forward Joao Felix for a record breaking fee of €126M. Atletico Madrid are back looking to land Benfica striker Ivan Saponjic. Saponjic has yet to appear with Benfica's main club and spent last season with the B team in the second division of Portugal, he appeared in 28 games, scoring 6 times. Saponjic is said to have caught the attention of Atletico manager Diego Simone during the recent Euro U21 finals as he represented his native Serbia. Benfica would be willing to part with the young striker for a reported €8M but want to retain 20% of the players rights towards any future sale.
