Manchester City may have reportedly offered 100 million euros for Jose Gimenez but Atletico Madrid are not willing to negotiate his departure.Los Rojiblancos are pointing potential suitors to the Uruguayan centre-back’s 120m euro buyout clause.As The Times have reported, Pep Guardiola’s side are interested in signing Gimenez to strengthen their defence.However, Atletico have turned down Manchester City twice and the Uruguay international has dismissed Guardiola’s interest too.Atletico CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin has personally communicated to his counterparts that none of the important players will leave the club if their release clauses are not triggered.Los Rojiblancos consider Gimenez as a vital part of their plans and understand that the COVID-19 crisis has affected all clubs this summer.For this reason, they would only enter into negotiations for those who are not considered fundamental pillars of the project, including players such as Thomas Lemar, Diego Costa and Vitolo.Atletico have already turned down more offers for players such as Joao Felix, Saul Niguez, Jan Oblak, Alvaro Morata and Thomas Partey.
