Atletico Madrid to Braga
Ruben Micael is now an SC Braga player, after the Portuguese club purchased half of the rights to the player for 3 million euros, a record purchase for the club. Micael has been in scintillating form for Braga this season, where he has been on loan from Atletico Madrid. The midfielder moved to Atletico as part of the Falcao deal, but was immediately loaned to Zaragoza. He spent the entirety of last season on loan at the Spanish club, and joined Braga at the beginning of this season. He had previously shown what he could do in the Liga Zon Sagres first with Nacional and then with Porto, and many were eagerly awaiting his performances for Braga. He has not disappointed. Micael has amassed four goals and two assists in ten appearances this season, and has become one of Braga’s most valued assets. The contract that he signed is valid for five years.
