The midfielder's move to 'los rojiblancos' has become one of the most protracted transfers of the Spanish close season, but the player's agent Felipe Martinez has now confirmed that his client will sign a three-year deal at El Vicente Calderon on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Novo will be reunited with former boss Gregorio Manzano at Atletico, and his representative admitted the player was keen to complete the move as soon as possible.
"The boy is expectant, and wants everything resolved so he can come to Madrid as soon a s possible," said Martinez.
"We are now waiting for the last few details to be sorted, very little things that should be easy to wrap up.
"Therefore, I think that this afternoon (Tuesday) Novo could well be an Atletico Madrid player.
"It has been a soap opera, but it's a product of the circumstances football finds itself in at the moment."
