Barcelona tracking Atletico Madrid's Mario Hermoso for defensive reinforcement

FC Barcelona are strategically eyeing Atletico Madrid's versatile defender Mario Hermoso, whose contract with the Madrid-based club is set to conclude this summer.

The club's financial prudence has led the Catalan giants to explore the free transfer market, and Hermoso has emerged as a viable option.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keenly monitoring Hermoso's situation as the 28-year-old Spaniard hesitates to ink a new deal at Atletico. With Marcos Alonso's departure on the horizon, Barcelona are poised to bid farewell to the veteran, who might find himself donning the colours of the Rojiblancos as a free agent.

Hermoso's ability to play adeptly at left-back and centre-back, coupled with his wealth of experience boasting over 170 La Liga appearances, makes him an attractive prospect for Barcelona. The prospect of reinforcing their defence with a seasoned player without incurring transfer fees adds to the allure of this potential move.

As June 30 approaches, the date when Hermoso's contract expires, Barcelona keep a watchful eye on the situation, contemplating a strategic move for the Spanish international if he decides to let his contract run out at the Civitas Metropolitano.
