Porto Striker confirms he has signed for Atletico Madrid


Porto striker Jackson Martinez has today confirmed that he has signed a four-year contract with Atletico Madrid, after turning down the chance to join AC Milan.

The 28-year-old Colombian international was heavily linked with a move to Milan or Arsenal, but after selling Mario Mandzukic to Juventus, Atletico manager Diego Simone swooped to land the Porto Striker.

“I can confirm I am going to Atletico,” said Martinez after Colombia’s Copa America defeat to Argentina in Vina del Mar on Friday night. “I am going there for four years, but I still don’t know when I will be introduced.”
