Colombian starlet Rafael Santos Borre has landed in Spain ahead of his proposed move to Atletico Madrid.
Los Colchoneros have reportedly agreed a €5 million deal for the forward’s services and he will now undergo a medical in Madrid ahead of signing a long-term deal.
It remains to be seen whether Santos Borre will be loaned back to Deportivo Cali for one year, but that looks the most likely arrangement.
Speaking to reporters at the Madrid airport, the 19-year-old revealed he was delighted by the opportunity that had presented itself, adding that he had already spoken to compatriots Radamel Falcao and Jackson Martinez.
The talented forward largely impressed this season, scoring 11 goals in 17 league matches and he has now earned a lucrative move to Atletico Madrid.
