Atletico Madrid have finally announced the signing of goalkeeper Axel Werner, although he will spend the upcoming season on loan at Boca Juniors.
Werner’s move to Atleti has been in public knowledge for some time, but the club have now formalised his arrival on a five-year contract from Atletico Rafaela.
The 20-year-old was also part of Argentina’s Olympic football team prior to their group-stage elimination in Rio, where he was joined by new clubmate Angel Correa.
However, he will continue his immediate development back home with Boca as Atleti have since recalled Portugal Under-21 international Andre Moreira from his loan spell at Belenenses to replace the injured Miguel Angel Moya between the sticks.
