Raul Garcia delighted with Atletico Madrid move

Raul Garcia was delighted to complete his move to Atletico Madrid from Osasuna yesterday.

Armed with a five-year contract, £7.5 million signing Raul said at his signing ceremony: "If I've come here it is because they have demonstrated to me that they have faith in me. When people trust you and want you to join them, you can go forward without any doubts.

"The option to work with Javier Aguirre was very influential as he is a coach I worked with at Osasuna. But I didn't just come because of him, but because I believe in the Atletico project.

"I am conscious that I come to one of the great clubs of Spain, I'm very excited because for me it is a big step and, mainly, because I believe that I can achieve things that at Osasuna I was unable to."
