After loan spells in the past two seasons it seems Atlético are finally signing Tiago Mendes on a permanent deal.
MARCA report on Tuesday that the midfielder was at the Vicente Calderón on Monday night to go over the details of his contract.
Tiago has one year remaining on his deal with Juventus but is not needed in Turin, and it’s believed Atleti will be able to sign him for a small fee.
The 30-year-old has spent the past 18 months on loan at Atlético.
Atleti had been linked with Borja Valero, but with Tiago’s arrival, which seems imminent, it looks as if the club has gone for the cheaper option.
We’re glad this time the deal has been resolved quickly. Tiago’s loan last season was agreed late in pre-season, and it took the player a few weeks to get match ready.
Are you happy Tiago’s going to continue at Atlético? Or would you have preferred another player such as Borja Valero or Barcelona youngster Thiago?
