Atalanta have announced the signing of former Roma defender Rafael Toloi from Sao Paulo.
The 24-year-old spent the second half of the 2013-14 season on loan with the Giallorossi, but the capital club decided not to take up their €5.5m option on him.
“Atalanta BC announces that it has bought defender Rafael Toloi outright from Sao Paulo,” a statement on the Orobici’s website declared.
“The player, who arrived in Bergamo yesterday, had his medical this afternoon and will now train with the rest of the squad at Bortolotti di Zingonia.”
Toloi will wear the number 22 shirt for this season.
