Goodbye Petrov; Hola Simao.

Posted by atleti on July 26, 2007

Petrov is set to sign for Manchester City after agreeing to an 8 million euro contract. I liked Petrov and am sad to see him go, but since that awful knee ligament injury and the recent arrival of Luis Garcia, his future at the club has been in doubt. Best of luck to him at Manchester City…

Meanwhile, Simao Sabrosa is on his way to Madrid today to sign a 4-year contract with los rojiblancos. The figure reported at the moment is very high, €20m, and might rise to 25 as it is believed there’s a portion of the contract that is performance-based. AS reports that there’s a possibility midfielder Costinha or  defender Ze Castro might be included in the deal.

Stay tuned for official details!
