Marcos Paulo will officially become an Atlético player in the next few days, according to Marca.

The young Brazilian talent signed his contract in January, but it will be now, ahead of 2021/22 campaign, when he is officially unveiled on a deal until 2026.

The initial idea at the Wanda Metropolitano was to send the player on loan in order for him to continue to develop. Marcos Paulo is expected to arrive in Madrid at the end of this week or next Monday. He passed his medical in January.

Both Cádiz and Celta Vigo have both shown interest in taking the Fluminense winger on loan.
