Atletico Madrid completed a late deal for Valencia defender Gabriel Paulista during the winter transfer window.

Late Business for Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid finalized their business of the winter transfer window by signing Valencia defender Gabriel Paulista. The move was made late in the market, with Paulista coming in as Caglar Soyuncu joined Fenerbahce on loan, viewed as a straight swap to reinforce Diego Simeone’s defensive options.

Deal Details

The deal for Gabriel Paulista involved Atletico securing a free transfer after agreeing to pay the remainder of his Los Che contract until the end of the campaign. The former Arsenal defender’s late arrival did not stop him from being expected to play in the weekend derby against Real Madrid, demonstrating the club’s confidence in his abilities.

Excitement for the New Arrival

Gabriel Paulista expressed his eagerness to get started in Madrid and humorously pointed out that not having to mark new teammate Antoine Griezmann was a pull factor in his decision to join Atletico. He lauded Griezmann as one of the best players in the world, and looked forward to playing alongside him.

Griezmann’s Importance

Antoine Griezmann’s significance to Atletico Madrid’s top-four push is highlighted, with an impressive record of 11 La Liga goals and six league assists so far, contributing to a total of 18 goals in all competitions.
