Club Atlético de Madrid have sealed the €4m transfer of Colombian central defender Luis Perea.

Club Atlético de Madrid have sealed the transfer of Colombian central defender Luis Perea on a four-year contract from CA Boca Juniors.

Reported €4m fee
Atlético director Miguel Ángel Gil Marín reached an agreement with Boca chairman Mauricio Macri at a meeting in the Spanish capital last night. Atlético will pay a reported fee of €4m for the 25-year-old, although defender Javier Pinola - who spent last season on loan at Club Racing de Avellaneda - may travel in the opposite direction in part-exchange.

Colombia squad
Perea began his career at Deportivo Independiente Medellín, before joining Boca last year. He has been capped 12 times by Colombia and has been part of their 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.
