AS reports that Atlético signing Joao Miranda arrived in Madrid on Sunday morning.
Miranda is ready to suit up in his Atleti gear and hit the training ground following a medical on Monday.
“I’m very happy to have arrived at Atlético,” he told reporters at the airport.
The 26-year-old centre-back came to Spain upon wrapping up his final season with Sao Paulo, a campaign marked by his ‘Defender of the Year’ award in the Brazilian top flight.
According to AS, Miranda stands out because of his physical strength, speed, technique and ball control. The defender has been capped by the Seleção on six occasions.
It’s unclear whether Miranda will be formally presented before joining his team-mates in Segovia, so check back as we’ll be keeping you posted.
