Agent says Atlanta beat Barcelona, Real Madrid to Gonzalo Martínez deal

The agent of Atlanta United's latest signing, Gonzalo Martínez, has revealed interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Martinez impressed for River Plate in the recent Copa Libertadores final.

"Barcelona and Real Madrid were also interested [in Martínez] but he and his agents saw the potential in the MLS," agent Guido Albers told De Volkskrant.

Martínez, 25, joins Atlanta in a deal worth 15 million euros after starring for River Plate last year.
