Reyes Officially Transfers to Atlético

Posted by atleti on July 30, 2007

Well, that’s that. Jose Antonio Reyes finally finds a club willing to take him. He officially transferred to Atlético today after agreeing to a 4-year contract worth about €12 million.

I have mixed feelings on this. Reyes strikes me as a player who was desperate to play anywhere in Spain so as not to return to England.  The fact that he expressed such a strong desire to join Re*l M*drid at the end of the season– not to mention helping them win the domestic league– sickens me to no end.

That said, now that he’s a rojiblanco, I wish him the best of luck and hope that he adds creativity and more goal-scoring opportunities. Hopefully the 23 year old will prove his critics wrong with excellent performances on the pitch. All in all, from a technical standpoint, he’s a very good signing. (I’d love to see him score derby day!)

Reyes will join his new teammates in Amsterdam for the Amsterdam Tournament after his official presentation tomorrow (Tuesday).

Surely this means the end of Costinha?! More on possible squad formations tomorrow.

Jose Antonio Reyes joins Atlético Madrid after spending three years with Arsenal, his last year spent on loan to Real Madrid. He’s a versatile player that can play as a left-winger or support striker.

    He was a fine player for Sevilla, wasn’t he? Maybe now that he’s settled he’ll go back to that level.

    My thoughts exactly. Now that his future is set, hopefully he’ll be in the media for good things…like great goals and performances, not complaining about the weather ; )
