Luciano VIETTO has joined Spanish club Valencia.
Second place in La Liga Valencia have added depth to their front line adding Argentinian striker Luciano VIETTO from Atletico Madrid. VIETTO joins on a loan deal until June with the club having an option to buy at the end of the season.
We reported in the past week that the former Racing Club man was apparently close to joining Portuguese club Sporting CP but that deal ultimately fell through. This already marks the fourth club in Spain which VIETTO has represented, having joined Villarreal in 2014 from Racing Club, which was then followed by Diego SIMEONE’s Atletico Madrid and the third being Sevilla, although that one was on loan as well.
Diego SIMEONE on Luciano VIETTO leaving to Valencia
During a press conference on Tuesday, Diego SIMEONE had this to say about VIETTO’s possible departure:
“I have spoken with him and he has a chance to leave. I wish him the best and I hope he goes to a competitive team. His departure annoys me because his play hasn’t been accompanied by goals at a team which doesn’t wait.
“He has been one of our best players. I love him a lot as a person and he is an extraordinary footballer. It’s a shame that he hasn’t been able to add goals to his game.”
