Stefan Savic is officially an Atletico Madrid player after the club confirmed his arrival from Fiorentina, with Mario Suarez set to go the other way.

Atletico confirmed the defender’s arrival late on Monday night after he underwent a medical in the capital.

Savic has signed a five-year contract with no fee confirmed by Atleti, but Marca put the prize at €12m and Mario.

“We are very satisfied with the agreement because Stefan is a player with huge potential and a great future,” sporting director Jose Luis Caminero said.

“He’s quick and strong and has experience, despite his youth, after playing in major Leagues such as Serbia, England and Italy. I’m convinced he will bring a lot to the team.”
