But while last night his club Vélez Sársfield issued a press release announcing the departure of the Argentine Hope, towards the United States, Atlanta United responded and expressed its astonishment.

“We have seen information about Thiago Almada. We have not made a commitment to acquire the player at this time; we can confirm that we retain an exclusive option of final player transfer. The option runs until 2022. We will not be commenting further on the player at this time, ” said the club, which finished 5th in the Eastern Conference this year.

Vélez’s announcement:

“An agreement has been reached with Major League Soccer (MLS) for the definitive transfer of federative rights from Thiago Almada to Atlanta United FC. The amount of the transaction is US $ 16,000,000 (€ 14 million). The agreement will enter into force at the beginning of February 2022. “
