Braga full-back Silvio has revealed he is expecting to join Atletico Madrid following the club's Europa League final defeat.
Silvio started Wednesday's showpiece in Dublin, but was unable to prevent Braga from losing 1-0 to Portuguese rivals Porto.
The 23-year-old claimed after the match that it was his last appearance for the club and he is now ready to join Spanish side Atletico.
"I confirm that I'm going to Atletico Madrid," Silvio told the Portuguese press. "This was my last game in the Braga shirt.
"I'm going to take on a very attractive challenge in Spain, where I hope to be happy."
Silvio, who has three caps for Portugal, came up through the youth ranks at Benfica and played for Atletico Cacem, Odivelas and Rio Ave before joining Braga last year.
