Atletico Madrid agree deal to sign Vitolo despite transfer ban

The wording of the Atletico statement is as follows: "Atletico Madrid has reached an agreement with Víctor Machín Pérez, Vitolo, for the next five years after the footballer rescinded his contract with Sevilla Fútbol Club".

The former Las Palmas man, who will now rejoin his former club fir six months, has been heavily linked with a move to Atletico Madrid in the past, but the club's transfer ban made it much more hard to thrash out a deal. But Spanish sports daily Marca reported that Atletico has now met the Sevilla release clause for Vitolo of 37.5 million euros ($43 million) and that the player passed his medical on Wednesday.

Atletico Madrid announced on Wednesday the signing of Sevilla winger Vitolo, who will play at Las Palmas until January because of the capital club's ban on registering players, resolving a complex transfer saga.

Spanish media said the winger changed his mind about staying at Sevilla after a phone call late on Tuesday from Atletico. "He has let us down as a person".

Until that point he will play for former side Las Palmas. "The Spain global has signed with our club until 30 June 2022". "This has deteriorated relationships with these clubs that were marketing our player".

"Vitolo is a player with extensive experience and quality, who has played for Spain 11 times and become one of the most unsafe players in La Liga in recent seasons", Atletico said in a statement.

"The midfielder, victor of three UEFA Europa Leagues in 2014, 2015 and 2016, will contribute quality and speed to our midfield".
