Robinho joins Ibrahimovic at AC Milan

Brazil forward Robinho has transferred to AC Milan, the second

major signing in four days for the Italian club following Zlatan

Ibrahimovic’s move from Barcelona.

Milan announced Tuesday that Robinho had signed a four-year

contract after a full transfer from Manchester City. The deal

reportedly cost Milan ?15 million ($19 million).

”Our goal has to be to win very important titles,” Robinho

told Milan’s TV channel. ”All the Brazilians on the team will give

me a big hand inserting myself into the squad. I hope to create a

lot of history for this club.”

Robinho was sent on loan to Brazilian side Santos last


Milan opened Serie A with a 4-0 win over Lecce on Sunday, and

has greatly strengthened its chances of challenging five-time

defending Serie A champion Inter Milan.

”It’s really been a great transfer campaign and the fans

understand that, which you can see in season-ticket sales,” Milan

vice president Adriano Galliani said.
