Atletico Madrid and Nottingham Forest have reached an agreement over a loan deal for defender Renan Lodi, the Rojiblancos have confirmed in an official statement.

The 24-year-old Brazilian international has signed a new contract extension with Los Rojiblancos until the summer of 2026 before departing the Civitas Metropolitano for the Premier League, where he will spend the rest of the season on loan.

“Atlético de Madrid and Nottingham Forest have reached an agreement over the loan until the end of the current season of Renan Lodi, who has extended his contract with our club until 2026,” the statement from the club read.

Lodi joined Atletico in the summer of 2019 and has gone on to make 118 appearances for the club so far, scoring six goals in the process.

The left-back had fallen down the pecking order at the Metropolitano recently, though, with manager Diego Simeone opting to use Reinildo Mandava ahead of him.

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Nottingham Forest will pay Atletico Madrid a loan fee of €5 million for the signing of Lodi. The Premier League newbies will have an option to make the Brazilian’s transfer permanent at the end of the season for a fee of €30 million.

With Lodi out the door, Atletico Madrid have already lined up a replacement for him in the form of Tottenham left-back Sergio Reguilon.

Yannick Carrasco could be on the move from Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window later this year. The Belgian international’s contract with the club expires in 2024 and he is being heavily linked with an exit.

As is well known at this point, Barcelona have secured a €20 million purchase option for Carrasco in the summer as part of their negotiations to sell Memphis Depay to Atleti last month.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are also monitoring Carrasco’s situation at the Civitas Metropolitano and could make a move to sign him up in the next transfer window.

Tottenham are long-term admirers of Carrasco and have previously made attempts to sign him. And it seems like their interest in the 29-year-old wide midfielder remains intact.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are also said to be keeping a close watch on Carrasco’s situation at Atletico Madrid as they are on the lookout to bolster their flanks further.

But any move from Tottenham or Manchester United would require Barcelona not to trigger their option to sign Carrasco from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

The update from Romano states that the Catalan giants are yet to make a decision on whether they want to activate their buy option for the winger.

While that may be so, SPORT is reporting that Carrasco has his heart set on a move to Spotify Camp Nou and would be ready to snub interest from the Premier League clubs in order to join Xavi’s Barcelona.

The Belgian’s agent, Pini Zahavi, has a good relationship with Barcelona, having helped them sign Robert Lewandowski last summer. He even tried to engineer a move to Camp Nou for Carrasco in January, but the Colchoneros did not budge.

As things stand, Carrasco’s future seems to be away from Atletico Madrid. What now remains to be seen is if Barcelona decide to sign him or whether he ends up in the Premier League.
