Augusto Fernández has been sold to Beijing Renhe, from the Chinese Super League. The Argentine midfielder joined Atlético de Madrid on 5 January 2016 and made 34 appearances for our club. He made his debut on 6 January in the Copa del Rey against Rayo Vallecano.
A serious knee injury kept Augusto on the sidelines for most of the 2016/17 season. His hard work and never give up attitude after his injury made him become a player loved by the fans and a respected leader in the dressing room.
In the present season, he defended our colours in 10 matches. Everyone at the club wishes Augusto well for his time with Beijing Renhe. This will always be your home, Augusto!
