Atlético Madrid have confirmed the arrival of Mario Hermoso from Espanyol in a deal worth €29m.
Hermoso starred for the Barcelona-based club last season and has been on the radar of some of Europe’s biggest sides.
But it’s Atleti who have won the race for his signature, with Diego Simeone’s side revealing that they have signed the centre-back on a five-year deal.
The news comes 24 hours after England international Kieran Trippier was announced as Atleti’s latest defensive recruit.
