The agreement has been revealed by Globo Esporte journalist Guilherme Moreira on Twitter.
Athletico acertou a venda do zagueiro Robson Bambu ao Nice, da França, por 8 milhões de euros. O jogador deve viajar em junho ou julho para realizar exames médicos e assinar 5 anos. Por conta do coronavírus e restrições, ele precisa de uma autorização para entrar no país europeu.

Moreira states that the 22-year-old will travel to France in June or July for a medical and contract signing. He will pen a five-year deal with Patrick Vieira’s side.
Because of the Coronavirus and restrictions on entering European countries, Bambu can’t travel this month.
Negotiations for Bambu have been going on since last year and intensified in mid-March.
Bambu had been on the radar of Nice’s Ligue 1 rivals Lyon and Lille, but his future lies in the French Riviera.
The highly-rated centre-back has won three caps for Brazil’s under-23s and the move to Europe will boost his chances of a full call-up for the Selecao.
