Reports are out claiming that Jackson Martinez is set to join Atletico Madrid after AC Milan pulled out of the race to sign the striker.
The FC Porto star has been on the radars of Atleti, the Rossoneri and Arsenal recently but with the Italians pulling out and the Gunners not yet making a move, it appears as though he is set to move to Madrid.
Milan revealed on Sunday that they will no longer pursue Colombia international Jackson which leaves Atletico free to complete the signing of the 28-year old who will cost €35million.
AC’s vice-president and CEO Adriano Galliani told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “If we save €40m on Geoffrey Kondogbia and €35m on Jackson Martinez, we’ll have another €75m to spend wisely over the rest of the transfer window.
“Whether that’s a good or a bad thing, only time will tell…”
