The record-breaking bomber in Europe will say goodbye to Bergamo before the farewell.

Luis Muriel from Atalanta to MLS, where he will wear the Orlando City jersey. The confirmation è came from Luca Percassi, CEO of the orobico club on the sidelines of the Nerazzurri’s away match on the Genoa field. The Dea executive has però promised fans that they will not miss the chance to greet the Colombian striker.

"In the next few hours, Muriel’s transfer will be made concrete,” Percassi told the microphones of 'DAZN'.

When circumstances of this kind occur, there is no really adequate way to say goodbye to a protagonist of Atalanta who helped write our history. We will però have a way to invite him to Bergamo, to make sure that the public can greet him in the most proper way".

Muriel, whose contract was expiring, will yield Atalanta a million euros in compensation. This season, shut down by the likes of De Ketelaere, Scamacca, Lookman and Miranchuk, he has made time to net four goals in the Europa League. Those markings allowed him to become the Nerazzurri's all-time top scorer in European cups (undermined former teammate Josip Ilicic).
