Only it appears a potential move to the Spanish capital is falling apart. L’Equipe in France is reporting he’s staying put as Atleti’s separate bids of $11 million and $16.5 million didn’t meet PSG’s asking price.

L’Equipe and other outlets say Atleti might be preparing one final bid of nearly $20 million before the window closes Friday, so it might be an eventful Friday on this front.
