Amath will join the newly promoted club on a five-year contract, but the Rojiblancos will still have an option to buying back the player as part of the agreement with Getafe.
The attacker spent last season on loan to CD Tenerife, scoring 12 goals in 39 appearances for the club. He had received interest from Spanish and Italian clubs after he nearly brought the Canary Islanders up to LaLiga; Tenerife lost to Getafe in the playoff promotion final earlier this summer.
The €3m figure brings Atlético’s transfer revenue this summer up to around €72m in a transfer window in which the club’s activity has been vastly curtailed by a ban on bringing in new players.
We wish Amath the best at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, and we hope he suits up for Atlético in the future!
