ATLETICO Madrid are heading for Israel.

The Spanish side, who are second in the Primera Liga, will take on Beitar Jerusalem in a friendly on May 21 at the Teddy Stadium, Jerusalem.

Israeli Idan Oferís company Qauntum Pacific owns 32 per cent of Atletico, while Israel international Avi Nimni played for them in the 1990s.

Last year, Atletico and Hapoel Beersheba announced plans for a youth academy in the southern Israeli city.
