According to the Spanish press reports, Atletico Madrid has secured the services of young Argentine wonder-kid Ever Banega from Valencia on a one-year loan deal.
The deal also includes a clause which allows Madrid to buy the Olympic champion after a year for a fee of Ã¢â€šÂ¬11 million.
The 20-year old midfielder has been linked to the Madrid outfit for a while and it is believed that differences between the clubs have finally been sorted out.
The biggest obstacle was the fact that Valencia wanted a fee of Ã¢â€šÂ¬4 million whereas Madrid was only willing to pay Ã¢â€šÂ¬1.5 million. However it is rumored that Valencia ceded, accepting a lower fee.
Atletico president Enrique Cerezo, said at the unveiling today: Ã¢â‚¬Å“He is an Argentine international who, in spite of his youth, is one of the most promising players in international football.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We should emphasize that Ever has extraordinary quality as a player and handles the ball very well, we are convinced that he will be an important part of the group.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Banega who won Olymic goal this summer in China has played for Argentina U-20 a total of 14 times and also has one full cap with the senior team already.
