As Atletico Madrid prepare to resume their La Liga title chase with a mouthwatering trip to Sevilla next Sunday, uncertainty surrounds the future of their defence, which has been the bedrock of their sustained success under Diego Simeone.

Captain Diego Godin leads a list of four players who have all been the fulcrum of that reliable rearguard in recent years but have an unclear status at the club whose fortunes they have transformed.
