Vieri signs pay-as-you-play deal with Atalanta

ROME, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Former Italy striker Christian Vieri has signed a one-year contract at the minimum wage of 1,500 euros a month with Atalanta, the Serie A club announced on its website on Tuesday.

The deal, by which he will be paid more according to how much he plays and scores, was the second Vieri has signed since the end of last season.

In July he joined Atalanta's Serie A rivals Sampdoria, but a recurrence of the knee injury that kept him out of action at Monaco last season and out of Italy's World Cup squad led to the contract being dissolved.

Vieri, 33, is among the most well-travelled players in Italy. He started his career with Prato in Italy's third division in 1989 and made his Serie A debut with Torino in 1991.

He had short stints with Atalanta and Juventus before joining Spanish side Atletico Madrid.

He returned to Italy at the start of the 1998-99 season to play for Lazio and a year later moved to Inter Milan for a then world-record $49 million.

Vieri spent six seasons at Inter, scoring 102 goals in 143 appearances, finishing leading scorer in Serie A in 2003 with 24 goals and establishing himself as Italy's best centreforward.

Before Monaco he played briefly for AC Milan.
