Jackson Martinez “thanks Milan, but he preferred the Atletico Madrid project,” confirmed the Porto striker’s agent.
Earlier today the Colombia international had not made any decision on his future yet, but representative Luiz Henrique Pompeo assured the deal was done.
“We thank Milan and especially Adriano Galliani, who did everything possible to take him to the Rossoneri,” the agent told Calciomercato.com.
“The lad preferred to say yes to Atletico Madrid for the project they built around him.
“The deal is done because I say it is. He has already signed on for the next four years and the Spanish club paid the release clause in his contract.”
The clause was set at €35m, the same price Milan were willing to pay.
