Atlético Mineiro announce Diego Tardelli signing
Atlético Mineiro have announced the signing of former striker Diego Tardelli from Al-Gharafa.
Club president Alexandre Kalil announced the deal on his personal Twitter account in which he also retweeted Tardelli's photo which hinted at a return to the club earlier in the day.
This will be Tardelli's second spell at the club, where he spent two years from 2009 to 2011, scoring 73 goals and finishing as top scorer in 2009.
The deal has been completed after months of negotiations between the two clubs, as negotiations stalled numerous times.
A breakthrough finally occured on Thursday when Al-Gharafa released a statement revealing that the deal was in advanced stages.
The striker will now make the switch from Qatar to Brazil in time to see his new club take on Cruzeiro in the Campeonato Mineiro tonight.
