Nehuén Pérez thrilled to make Atletico Madrid move

Atletico Madrid have signed young Argentinian central defender Nehuén Pérez on a six-year deal.

Perez arrives from Argentinos Juniors.

The 18-year-old, who Atlético had been tracking for several months, passed a medical in Madrid before putting pen to paper with the LaLiga club.

Pérez, who trained with the Argentina squad during their World Cup campaign in Russia, will initially return to Argentinos Juniors on a season-long loan.

"I've already signed," he proclaimed, stating that "it's a dream.

"I'm very happy, I'm going to Atlético Madrid."
