Robinho Joins AC Milan

It appears Inter Milan may have a formidable opponent this season in the quest for yet another consecutive Serie A title. 

AC Milan has had an extremely impressive transfer window and the club has brought in several world renowned stars in the last week alone. And days after landing the Swedish sensation and former Serie A Golden Boot winner Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the club has now signed Manchester City outcast and Brazilian playmaker Robinho.

AC Milan announced the acquisition earlier today well before the transfer deadline approached and the former EPL man also signed a four year deal after completing the full transfer. And the move certainly was not a shock considering the fact that Robinho had been linked with the Italian club for the last few weeks and also has negatively spoken out about having to return to England for the upcoming season,

Robinho originally wanted to stay with his domestic league side of Santos this upcoming year, but the ambitious EPL side demanded that the winger return to the club that owned his rights. And after a short training stint with the big spenders it appeared quite obvious that they would allow the Brazilian to leave with the huge additions of David Silva from La Liga side Valencia and James Milner from Aston Villa.

Robinho will join fellow Brazilian offensive superstars Pato and Ronaldinho, so expect the former Man City man to have an immediate impact on the pitch for his new Italian club. And the addition is great news for Serie A fans considering it gives Inter a little bit of added pressure to defend their league title this season.
