Atletico Madrid signs Jackson Martinez

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. He'll help boost a front line that lost Mario Mandzukic to Juventus, with the Croatian signing a four-year deal with the four-time reigning Serie A champion. Atletico Madrid was dethroned as Spanish champion last season by Barcelona.

Martinez just wrapped up his time in Copa America with Colombia, which was ousted by Argentina in penalties.

MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich signed Brazil midfielder Douglas Costa from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

"A dream has come true for me today," said Costa, who will join his new teammates on July 11. "I'm proud to become a player for Bayern, following in the footsteps of so many magnificent Brazilian players."

Donetsk said Bayern was paying 30 million euros ($33 million) for the player whose contract with the club ran to 2018.

After joining Donetsk from Gremio in January 2010, Costa scored 38 goals in 203 competitive games and helped the side to five consecutive titles from 2010-14, as well as three Ukrainian Cup wins.

"Douglas Costa will be good for our team," Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer said. "He has great technical ability, a powerful left foot, he is very agile, and extremely quick."

Costa can play on either flank, and is expected to provide an alternative to injury-prone wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. Ribery will miss the start of the season because of persistent ankle problems.

Liverpool adds Clyne from Southampton

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — England defender Nathaniel Clyne became the fourth player to join Liverpool from Southampton in the past year after signing for a reported fee of 12.5 million pounds ($19.7 million) on Wednesday.

Liverpool said Clyne moved on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee, making the attacking right back the club's sixth arrival of the offseason. Liverpool has also signed Roberto Firmino, James Milner, and Danny Ings this offseason, as well as back-up goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, and young defender Joe Gomez following a disappointing season.

Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, and Rickie Lambert left Southampton for Liverpool last summer for a combined cost of nearly 50 million pounds (now $79 million).

Clyne will replace Glen Johnson, who has been released by Liverpool this offseason.

The 24-year-old Clyne has established himself as England's first-choice right back this year.

"As soon as Liverpool showed their interest in me I was happy, and just wanted the deal to go through," Clyne said. "It's definitely a good opportunity to come here and try to fulfill my potential."
