Reports have emerged that Atletico Madrid have renewed their interest in Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
This is despite earlier statements from manager Diego Simeone, who told reporters that he had no intention in pursuing the Argentine forward.
'Atletico Madrid are looking to swoop in on Messi with an €123 million offer', stated one source.
'And with Messi looking to leave Barcelona, it looks as though it might actually happen.'
