Atletico capture Uruguay defender Godin
Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of Uruguay defender Diego Godin from Villarreal for an initial fee of €8 million.
Godin, 24, has penned a five-year contract at the Vicente Calderon, and leaves the Yellow Submarine after three successful years at the club.
The centre-back, who helped his country finish fourth at the World Cup, joined Villarreal in 2007 from Nacional in his homeland and established himself as a regular in La Liga.
Villarreal earlier this week acquired World Cup-winning centre-back Carlos Marchena from Valencia on a three-year deal.
