Reports in France claim Atletico Madrid have joined the queue of clubs pursuing Paris Saint-Germain's want-away midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Atletico's sporting director Andrea Berta has made contact with the player's people to see if he'd be willing to move to the Wanda.
Diego Simeone has given the green light to the operation as Atletico prepare to tinker with their squad after exiting the Champions League to Juventus last week.
Rabiot's mother and agent, Veronique, has accused PSG of treating her son like a "prisoner" after he was suspended last week for partying after the game against Manchester United -- he did not play.
After refusing to sign a new deal, and with his contract up in the summer, PSG have sidelined Rabiot from playing for the first team.
Atletico join a number of clubs in the hunt for the French midfielder, who can leave for free when his deal expires in June.
