Share This Story


AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has revealed that Taye Taiwo and Philippe Mexes will join the Italian champions this summer.

Nigeria left-back Taiwo and French defender Mexes will move to the Serie A outfit on a free transfer.

"In defence, Milan are sorted," said Allegri in Monday's press conference. "We have taken (Philippe) Mexes and Taiwo."

Taiwo, 26, had a fine season with Marseille, including scoring the only goal in last month's League Cup final victory.

Mexes, who has been at Roma for seven seasons, is set to replace veteran Alessandro Nesta in the heart of defence alongside Brazilian Thiago Silva.

Milan, who won their first scudetto since 2004 at the weekend, travel to Palermo tomorrow for their Coppa Italia semi-final return leg.
