Gil has heaped pressure on the 21-year-old, comparing him to Deportivo La Coruna's star forward Juan Carlos Valeron.
Indeed with nine new signings this summer, Atletico have gone for broke in their centenary season and how they all bed into Luis Aragones's system will go a long way in telling how well los rojiblancos will do.
"I've wanted to play in these colours for a long time and for that reason, despite having several offers from other clubs, I've always wanted to play for Atletico," said Jorge.
Jorge has signed a five year deal and Gil said at the press conference: "He is the new Valeron."
Gil revealed that Mallorca made a late bid for Jorge but Las Palmas and the player kept to their word and he agreed to move to Atletico.
