Atalanta make Pasalic move from Chelsea permanent

MILAN, Italy, Jun 22Atalanta have activated their option to buy Croatian international Mario Pasalic from Premier League club Chelsea, the Serie A side said on Monday.

The 25-year-old midfielder had been on loan in Bergamo since July 2018 and the permanent deal reportedly cost Atalanta 15 million euros (Sh1.8bn).

“Mario Pasalic stays with us! Our #88 is an Atalanta player on a permanent basis!” the Italian club announced on Twitter.

“Over the past two years, Mario has made a significant contribution to achieving important milestones such as qualifying for the Champions League last season and reaching the quarter-finals of the current edition,” Atalanta added.

They picked up where they left off before the three-month coronavirus shutdown on Sunday with a 4-1 win over Sassuolo in Bergamo.
