AC Milan has completed the signing of Brazilian international Robinho from Manchester City. Robinho joins Ibrahimovic and fellow compatriots Pato and Ronaldinho in what is expected to be a killer attack for the Italian giants.
Milan signed Robinho outright for a figure in the region of 15 million Euros. The 26 year old signed a 4 year contract after successfully completing his medical at Milan’s Milanelo training ground.
“AC Milan communciates it has acquired the player Robinho, outright from Manchester City. The Brazilian has signed a contract with the Rossoneri club for four years.”
The Brazilian international has also pledged to give his best and in the process make the fans happy. That is code for joga bonito football. Ronaldinho and Robinho together playing for the same team is any defender’s nightmare and this partnership together with Pato and Ibra is already creating a lot of expectations from the many anxious fans.
Speaking to the press, Robinho had this to say:
“Milan have a great players, a great team with a victorious history. I hope that together with my new team-mates we will be able to help the club to several titles.
“I always heard great things about Milan from Kaka, and I’m sure that the other Brazilian players will help me integrate into the team.
“I hope to satisfy all Milan fans, I’ll train hard to make it happen. I want to make them all happy.”
Milan executives Adriano Galliani and Silvio Berlusconi have definitely given the fans something to smile about and with the Rossoneri winning their opening league fixture convincingly, many believe that Milan can match Inter’s feat by winning the treble this season.
