Mendes set for Atletico move
Brazilian attacking midfielder Elias Mendes is set to put the finishing touches on his move to Atletico Madrid at the start of next week.
The 25-year-old Corinthians player is due to arrive in the Spanish capital on Monday morning before undergoing a medical with Los Rojiblancos.
If all goes well, Elias will pen a four-and-a-half-year contract with Atletico, the Primera Division club announced on their website.
Atletico, who saw the defence of their UEFA Europa League title come to an end last night, are sixth in the Primera Division standings, five points off the UEFA Champions League spots.
