Gelson Martins: I decided to sign for Atletico Madrid because of Simeone
“I took the decision thanks to him and I know that I’ll really like working with Simeone.
“Atletico are a very strong team with big players, a team that I fit in perfectly with my style of play.
“I’m very happy to be here, it’s a very interesting project for me and I’m going to give my all for Atletico.”
The Portuguese international is now set to join his new teammates for pre-season training, alongside other stars returning from the World Cup who did not return in time to travel on tour to Singapore.
