Official: Paletta joins Atalanta

As expected, Milan defender Gabriel Paletta has completed a loan move to Atalanta.

The Italian international only joined the Rossoneri in January, but his agent admitted that if Alessio Romagnoli were to arrive, his client would have to leave San Siro.

With Romagnoli eventually joining from Roma, Paletta was forced to seek a new club, and it emerged yesterday he was close to joining the Orobici.

“Atalanta BC announces the signing, on a temporary basis, of Gabriel Paletta,” a statement on the club’s official website confirmed.

“The defender, who will wear the number 29 shirt, underwent a medical this morning and will train with the rest of the squad at Bortolotti di Zingonia this afternoon.”
