Atlético Madrid announced the signing of defender José María Giménez from Uruguayan Primera División club Danubio on Wednesday.
The 18-year-old Uruguayan talent, currently on duty with his national U-20 football team, flew in to Madrid where he successfully underwent a medical examination before signing a five-year contract.
A versatile centre back, José María Giménez is also capable of playing as a full back.
Atlético Madrid sporting director José Luis Pérez Caminero described his signing as a “natural talent, a quick defender, a good man-marker and a classy ball-winner with a good shot.”
