Arias is in Germany closing his signing for Bayer Leverkusen

The Colombian side Santiago Arias did not train this Wednesday morning with the squad of Atlético de Madrid, with the club's permission to travel to Germany, where you are closing your pass to Bayer Leverkusen

Arias was not in the morning session scheduled this Wednesday by the rojiblanco team and, according to images published by the German newspaper 'Bild', he is in Leverkusen undergoing a medical examination prior to his signing for the North Rhine-Westphalia team.

The Colombian footballer will be, when the operation closes, the third exit of the Athletic in this market, after the goalkeeper Antonio Adam, who went free to Sporting from Portugal, and the forward Alvaro Morata, on loan to Italian Juventus. The club also released players who were returning from loan, such as the youth squad Francisco Montero (on loan to Besiktas) and the Brazilian Caio Henrique (transferred to Monaco).

The position of Arias, right back, is the only one that the rojiblanco team has covered in triplicate, so despite his departure he would keep two players in that area: the English Kieran trippier and the croatian Sime Vrsaljko.
