AC Milan sign Robinho
AC Milan have made their second big signing in the space of 24 hours with the addition of Manchester City's Brazilian striker Robinho.
Robinho was unsettled at Eastlands and spent the second half of last season on loan at Santos. A statement from AC Milan read: "AC Milan announces it has acquired player Robinho on a permanent deal from Manchester City. The Brazilian player has signed a four-year contract with the Rossoneri club."
The Italian club did not reveal the transfer fee for the 26-year-old, who joined City two years ago from Real Madrid for a British record transfer fee of £32.5m. AC Milan signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Barcelona yesterday and Robinho's arrival means the Rossoneri will have a lot of Brazilian flair with Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato already on the books.
"Milan has great players and it's a fantastic side with a very important history," said Robinho on the club's website, acmilan.com. "I hope with the rest of my team-mates to be able to contribute to hand many titles to this club.
"Kaka has always spoken to me very well about Milan and now I know that the Brazilian players in the team will give me a great hand in adapting to the team. I will work very hard to make the fans very happy. I want to bring so much joy to them."
