First setback for OM! Atlético de Madrid beat the Marseille club to secure the signature of a striker.
At a very dynamic start to the transfer window, OM conceded their very first defeat. The Marseille club sees a very privileged target leaving for Spain. Indeed, Atlético managed the perfect shot by snatching a signature from a player free of any contract. Very desired on the Canebière, Marcos Paulo will finally play for Atlético de Madrid from Fluminense. The Brazilian player has signed a long-term contract with the team coached by Diego Simeone.

Too bad for OM! Marcos Paulo goes to Spain
Marcos Paulo signed on Monday with the Liga club for 5 years. Atlético took this opportunity to sting this player at the end of his contract (June) at OM. In addition, the Spaniards will have no problem with a place of extra-community player since Marco Paulo has a Portuguese passport. Last season, the young striker distinguished himself with Fluminense scoring 5 goals and providing 5 assists in 35 appearances in the Brazilian league.
