Official | AS Monaco sign Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid

AS Monaco today announced the purchase of Portuguese international attacker Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid, with media reports claiming that the Principality side are paying close to €30m for the privilege.

Martins, who cast doubt on his desire to actually sign for Monaco permanently after his 6 month loan spell last season earlier this summer, is now tied to ASM for the next 5 seasons until 2024.

The player had the following to say on the move:

“I am very happy to be able to sign up to AS Monaco for the long-term. Despite the difficult situation, we were able to show good things last season and I will give my all to help the club attain its objectives this season.”

In his 17 matches so far for Monaco, he has scored 4 times and assisted 4 times.
