Milan have signed Manchester City’s Brazilian forward Robinho on transfer deadline day on Tuesday.
“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.” Milan said in a statement.
The Italian club did not reveal the transfer fee for the 26-year-old, though it is understood to be £18m, rising to a possible £21m.
The 26-year-old joined City from Real Madrid in 2008 but never really settled in the Premier League and spent the second half of last season on loan at former club Santos.
Earlier today, Robinho expressed his delight about joining the Italians.
“I am very happy,” he said. “Milan is an excellent club.”
