Atleti: Vietto joining Sporting CP

Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto has completed a loan move to Portuguese club Sporting CP, the club have confirmed.

Gil Marin, Atleti’s CEO, told Spanish TV channel La Sexta: “We have reached an agreement with Sporting for Vietto for a loan with an option to purchase.”

The 24-year-old will move to the Lisbon-based giants on a temporary arrangement until the end of the campaign, with the option to purchase reported to be €10m.

Vietto joined Atleti from Villarreal in 2015 in a €20m deal but has scored just once in 25 appearances, with a season-long loan stint at Sevilla in the 2016/17 campaign.

The Argentine rose to prominence with 20 goals in his debut season in Spain with the Yellow Submarine but has struggled to replicate that form since.
