The signing of Florent Sinama-Pongolle is finally official and the player will sign a 4-year contract with Atlético Madrid.
A presentation of Sinama will be made on Monday next week according to the official website, that's when the pre-season with physical tests and so on will start.
He's played 68 games for Recreativo during his two seasons at the club and scored 22 goals. Sinama-Pongolle started out his career at Le Havre in France where he played a total of 41 games and scored 7 goals for the club. Liverpool signed him back in 2003 but he wasn't given much playing time over there so they loaned him to Blackburn, which wasn't much of a success either.
Florent joined Recreativo back in 2006 and has been one of their keyplayers upfront. Also, he's a former FIFA U-17 World Champion with France back in 2001 where he earned the adidas Golden Shoe and adidas Golden Ball, just like Sergio Agüero.
Welcome and good luck, Florent! :thmbup:
