Atletico, Sporting Reach Agreement about Gelson’s Case, Vietto’s Transfer

LISBON/MADRID – Atletico Madrid and Sporting Lisbon reached an agreement to end the dispute regarding Portugal winger Gelson Martins and Argentine forward Luciano Vietto, the Portuguese club announced on its website Tuesday.

The agreement says that Atletico is to pay 22.5 million euros ($25.2 million) for Martins’ rights, waiving both sides’ rights and claims about this case, while Sporting is to pay 7.5 million euro for Vietto’s rights.

As for Martins, Sporting has submitted a complaint before the FIFA regarding the rights of the international pro, who joined Atletico in July on a free transfer, following the player’s decision to end the contract with the Portuguese club.

The 24-year-old forward currently plays for France’s AS Monaco on a one-year loan, and he is set to return to Atletico by the end of June.

Given the good performance Martins is having at Monaco, the Ligue 1 side might pay a 30 million euro purchase clause, according to French media.

In addition, the two clubs agreed that Sporting “definitively acquires the sports rights of the player Luciano Vietto, for the value of 7.5 M (7.5 million euros), with Atletico Madrid Club entitled to 50 percent of any future rights,” according to the statement.

Sources inside Atletico told EFE that Vietto’s deal was independent and separate from the dispute about Martins.

The Argentinian winger joined Atletico in the summer of 2015 on a transfer move from fellow La Liga side Villarreal, where he had 45 appearances and scored 20 goals, however, he notched only three goals in a season and a half at Atletico.

Afterward, Vietto, 25, played for Sevilla on loan during the 2016-2017 season, then had another six-month loan spell at Valencia in the second half of the following season, before parting to the Premier League’s Fulham this season.

The English side, which has already been relegated to the second league, seemed to have no intention of executing the purchase option to completely acquire Vietto’s rights, as the Argentinian scored only once in 22 matches.
