Club Atlético de Madrid have signed the Argentina midfielder Luciano Galletti from Real Zaragoza for €4m.
Club Atlético de Madrid unveiled Argentinian international Luciano Galletti this evening with club chairman Enrique Cerezo declaring the deal one of the "greatest signings of the summer".

Three-year deal
The 25-year-old midfielder has signed a three-year contract with Atlético, who have paid Real Zaragoza a fee of around €4m for his services. Cerezo said: "For any of our supporters, this is a very attractive signing, and personally, I think this is one of the greatest signings of the summer. I wish him all the very best at his new home, Atlético de Madrid."

'Great fans'
Galletti, whose former sides include SSC Napoli, Parma FC and Club Estudiantes de la Plata, stated: "I am grateful to Atlético for the faith they have placed in me.
