Atletico agree to sell Santana

MADRID - Atletico Madrid have agreed to sell midfielder Cleber Santana to Sao Paulo in his native Brazil, the Spanish club said on their website on Wednesday.

The departure of the 28-year-old, who joined Atletico in July 2007, creates room for the club to register their Argentine forward Eduardo Salvio as one of three non-European Union played allowed by La Liga rules in first-team squads.
