Atlético’s official site reports Tiago stopped by the offices of the Vicente Calderón on Wednesday and agreed to a two-year deal with Atleti, after having been released by Juventus.
The Portuguese midfielder arrived to los Rojiblancos in the 2009/10 January transfer window on loan from the Bianconeri.
After a long-drawn-out process over the summer of 2010, Atlético successfully negotiated his temporary stay for the entirety of the 2010/11 campaign.
There were some doubts about his future as a Colchonero back in the beginning of the year, when it was reported Atlético directors were ready to part ways with the veteran.
But new manager Gregorio Manzano made it clear that Tiago was a part of his plans for the team, so the former Portuguese international was offered a contract.
The 30-year-old will not be traveling with his team-mates to Andalusia for Thursday’s triangular friendly against local side Granada and Turkish outfit Besiktas.
Instead, Tiago will train alone in Madrid and re-join the squad upon their return as he looks to be fit in time for our Europa League qualifier on the 28th of July.
