Riquelme agrees to sign for Atletico - report

MADRID, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Villarreal's Argentina midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme has agreed to sign a two-year deal with Atletico Madrid, Spanish radio station Cadena Ser reported on Wednesday.

There was no official comment from either club, but Cadena Ser said sources close to the player had confirmed the deal.

The 29-year-old playmaker fell out with Villarreal coach Manuel Pellegrini midway through last season and was loaned out to his former club Boca Juniors.

He went on to inspire the Argentine side to their sixth Libertadores Cup crown.
