Argentine hot property signs for Atletico

Atletico Madrid have signed hot prospect Sergio Aguero on a six-year contract. The 17-year old is believed to have cost Atletico an amount in the region of $25.75 million, which would make Aguero Atletico's most expensive player. Atletico said they had closed the deal with Independiente and that the player would be presented to the media after undergoing a medical. Aguero has made a huge impact in his first professional season, narrowly missing out on selection for Argentina's World Cup squad after coach Jose Pekerman resisted popular pressure to include him.

Diego Maradona told Spanish television station Cuatro on Monday that he believed Aguero was on a par with Barcelona's Argentine forward Lionel Messi.

'The fact that people haven't seen much of him in Europe means he hasn't got the exposure that Messi has had,' Maradona said. 'But Aguero is just as good.'

Could this mean Atletico Madrid are expecting Fernando Torres to move?

Atletico also signed Greek international fullback Georgios Seitaridis and Portuguese midfielder Costinha from Dynamo Moscow yesterday.
