Jackson Martinez move to Atletico Madrid from Porto 'finalised', says agent.


Porto striker Jackson Martinez is close to a move to Atletico Madrid, according to the player's agent.

The Colombia international has been linked with a move to top clubs in Europe but Luiz Henrique Pompeo - who is the 28-year-old's agent - told Spanish newspaper AS the €35m transfer has been secured.

“It was finalised today," Pompeo said. "We want to thank AC Milan for their interest right up to the end, we feel very honoured by it, but you can’t be in two places at once.

“It’s a very big club, which has done important things in the league and in Europe. Jackson is going there also to achieve great things and to bring the best out of himself to become even better.

"That’s his dream and he’s very excited. He’s really happy.”
