Porto confirm signing of Atletico Madrid’s Adrián López
Porto are set to leave for their pre-season tour in Holland, but just before they boarded the plane, they sent out a teaser photo, confirming the signing of Atletico Madrid winger, Adrian Lopez.
While neither side has officially confirmed the transfer or the terms of the deal, Adrian was in Porto on Friday undergoing his standard medical ahead of a reported €11 million move to the Portuguese side.
However, Porto’s post on their official twitter account confirms that former Real Oviedo youth product will be joining a host of Spaniards working under former Spanish U-21 coach, Julen Lopetegui.
“The team is now travelling for the Netherlands and there’s a new player on the squad: @adrian7oficial! Welcome!”
Update: Porto have now confirmed the signing of Adrian Lopez will be for €11 million, where they retain 60% of the players rights, while Adrian has signed a contract through the 2018-19 season.
Porto has set Adrian’s release clause at €60 million.
