Atlético Madrid have successfully negotiated contract renewals for both José Giménez and Ángel Correa, reports MARCA.
Despite their current deals running until 2018 and 2019 respectively, Atléti are keen to fend off any potential interest in the pair by raising both their wages and release clauses.
The pair join Diego Godín, Juanfran, Lucas Hernández and Antoine Griezmann in extending their deals in Madrid since the end of the 2014/15 season.
Jose Giménez joined Diego Simeone’s side in 2013, and eventually replaced Miranda as Godin’s centre-back partner in what is a largely impregnable defense.
Meanwhile, Correa signed for Los Rojiblancos in 2014 but was unable to make his debut for six months. This was because his medical examinations discovered a heart tumor that required surgery.
He then made his debut for the club earlier this season, and his mature performances have impressed Simeone given his tender age of just 20-years-old.
Fernando Torres’ loan expires at the end of the season and he is on Milan’s books, not Atléti’s. Although nothing has been decided, he could be offered a short-term deal by his hometown club in the summer.
Tiago’s contract will also expire, but the chance of anyone swooping for the veteran is considered slim as he is recovering from a broken leg.
