Atletico Madrid are weighing up a possible move for Celtic fullback Josip Juranovic, according to Sky Sports journalist Lyall Thomas.
Fabrizio Romano has previously mentioned that Premier League clubs are keen on signing the Croatian international but Thomas claims that there is also interest from Spain:

Juranovic only joined from Legia Warsaw last summer and, while some fans on Twitter do admit that every player has their price, most are adamant the defender should stay at Parkhead:
Nothing but top dollar.

At the end of the day the ball’s in our court, he’s got years left on his contract. He seems very happy and I certainly don’t think he’s pushing to leave. Taking all into account, if clubs want to make offers then the bidding starts at £25 million, not a penny less ☘️☘️☘️

30m minimum we dont need or want to sell

I think it’s an error to sell. I’d keep him a year and he’ll still be worth the same or even more

40 m plus

Now the fair offer is
20m + Felix
Anything less is a no go

After a good showing in the champions League and the world cup his price will only go up.

Dont understand the people on here putting a price on him already. Lets try and get him to stay first. Hes said nothing on the speculation.

It really does depend on how much Atletico are prepared to pay for Juranovic. Ange Postecoglou’s side are under no pressure to sell after having qualified for the Champions League group stages, while the player still has four years left on his contract.
There is a possibility that Juranovic will push for a move if Atletico do make a serious attempt to sign him but recent reports suggest he is happy in Scotland so he is unlikely to rock the boat if Celtic do play hardball.
