Josip Juranovic admitted his excitement at the possibility of a move to Atletico Madrid this summer - as talk of a move to Chelsea emerges.

Thomas Tuchel is keen on a new right wing-back and the Celtic defender has been linked with a switch for around £15million.

Atletico and Manchester United are also said by 90min to be in the running and it appears to be the Spanish giants who Juranovic has most interest in signing for.

“I hoped there was something, but honestly I didn't ask the manager or anything,” he told RTL last month.

“I didn't care one bit, but again, I have to stay firmly on the ground. It was Atletico Madrid after all, but I'm at the great Celtic.”

A move to Old Trafford would not appeal to Juranovic, it seems, as the Croatian 23-year-old is eagerly awaiting his run in the Champions League with Celtic.

“Finally, [I’m looking forward to] the Champions League, to feel that music, that anthem and to finally perform there," he added.
