Reports are out claiming that Villarreal president Fernando Roig has announced Luciano Vietto is moving to Atletico Madrid.
Vietto joined Villarreal last summer from Argentinian side Racing Club on a reported €5.5 million transfer deal and signed a five-year deal with the Yellow Submarine.
“We have sold Vietto to Atletico Madrid,” Villarreal supremo Roig said in a press conference on Monday.
Vietto enjoyed an impressive debut season in the Primera Division scoring 12 goals in 32 league appearances to help the club finish sixth in La Liga.
Villarreal have reportedly accepted a £15million offer from Atletico to acquire the 21-year-old striker.
Premier League clubs Arsenal and Liverpool were also interested in the talented striker.
