Gelson Martins has been announced as a
Atletico Madrid’s latest signing, on a six-year
deal.
Los Rojiblancos were in discussions with Sporting CP
in an attempt to reach an amicable agreement over
Martins’ move, despite the fact he had rescinded
his contract following a training ground attack by
club ultras.
And yet, on Wednesday, Atleti confirmed that they
had secured the winger’s servies on a free
transfer.
That makes the deal somewhat comparable to
Wolves’ signing of Rui Patricio, who has been
subject to a complaint to FIFA as Sporting seek 57
million euros following his own free transfer.
Martins, who scored 27 and assisted a further 30
goals in 140 appearances for the Lisbon side, will
compete with Thomas Lemar and Vitolo for a place
on Diego Simeone’s flanks.
