Atletico Madrid are confident of securing star pair Diego Forlan and Sergio Aguero to new deals before the end of the year.

With Chelsea and Manchester United chasing Aguero and Barcelona keen on Forlan, Atletico chiefs will use part of the money secured from their imminent Champions League qualification to re-sign the strike-pair.

Forlan is expected to pen a new deal next month, while Aguero's negotiations are expected to be finalised by Christmas.
