Uruguayan wing-back signs

Atletico Madrid have finalised a deal for highly-rated Uruguayan defender Leandro Cabrera. The 18-year-old left wing-back is on his way to Spain after his representative Daniel Fonseca agreed terms for 50 per cent of Cabrera's rights. Fonseca owns the player and his club Defensor had no say in Cabrera leaving. "The agent of Cabrera has told us that he has decided to transfer the player to Atletico Madrid," the president of Defensor Dante Prato confirmed. "Defensor will not receive any money for this transfer as we had sold the player to his agent some time ago. "Fonseca has told us that he sold the 50 per cent of Cabrera and that the player has to travel to Spain in the next few days to have his medical. "Then he will come back to Uruguay as Defensor has to play the second leg of the championship final against Nacional on 5th July. "Fonseca has promised to us that the player will stay at Defensor until the championship is decided."
