Martinez scored 21 goals in 29 league games last season. The 28-year-old who has proved to be the best striker in Portuguese league was also linked to a move to Premier League side Arsenal. Martinez scored 92 goals in 130 appearances for Porto in all competition. The Colombian striker was planning to join Premier League outfit, however the relation of Atletico with Porto has played a vital role in convincing him to join the La Liga side. Atletico signed Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa from Porto in the past and both of them played successful years. Martinez told reporters recently: “I am going there for four years, but I still don't know when I will be introduced.” He further added that he is keen to play for the Spanish side. The reports strongly claimed that Serie A side AC Milan was also in the race but the deal failed to conclude. Columnist: Simon Oates Share !
