Atletico Madrid are reportedly considering the possibility of paying the buy-out clause of Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Salisu, Ghanasoccernet reported.
Salisu has attracted the attention of several top clubs in Europe following his impressive displays for Real Valladolid this season.
The 20-year-old has been solid in defence in a side that has conceded 27 goals from 24 matches played - the sixth-best in the La Liga.
