LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Atletico Madrid is paying 35 million euros ($39 million) to bring Colombia international Jackson Martinez from FC Porto.

The Portuguese club said in a statement to the Lisbon stock exchange late Tuesday that Atletico had agreed to meet the striker’s buyout clause.

Martinez has been the top scorer in the Portuguese first division for the last three seasons.

Atletico was dethroned as Spanish champion last season by Barcelona.
