David Villa has already passed his medical examination at Atletico Madrid ahead of completing a move from Barcelona.
On from yesterday’s announcement that Atleti had agreed a €5.1m deal to sign the 31-year-old from Barca, the player arrived in the Spanish capital in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Atleti have now confirmed that Villa has passed a preliminary medical examination, held at a clinic in Majadahonda, Madrid.
It is expected that the player will then head over to the club’s training centre for further tests and to finalise terms of his move, ahead of an expected presentation a week today, on July 16.
