Milan have announced the official signing of French wing-back Aly Cissokho from Porto. The Rossoneri will reportedly pay the Portuguese club €15million plus €1m for every trophy that the Rossoneri will lift during his time at the San Siro.
Milan beat off competition from French giants Lyon to secure Cissokho’s services after general manager Adriano Galliani traveled to Porto to complete negotiations last night.
“The overnight negotiation was intense,” Galliani admitted to the Diavoli’s official website.
“We think Cissokho is very strong, as proved by the interest in his services from important European clubs, even in the decisive hours that led to an agreement.
“But in the end, our long-standing footballing friendship with Porto directors prevailed, as we have also co-founded the G-14 in the past.
“The acquisition of Thiago Silva, who has yet to turn 25, and Cissokho, not yet 23, answer to a precise project: a young, fresh and competitive team and with the books balanced.
“That’s the path we will keep following over the next days and weeks.”
Milan will have been heartened to read the words of Edin Dzeko in today’s press, with the young Bosnian forward expressing his desire to move to the San Siro.
Speculation is rife in Italy that Wolfsburg striker Dzeko will become the Rossoneri’s first signing of the close-season following Kaka’s departure to Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid.
General manager Adriano Galliani has confirmed the club’s interest in the Bundesliga goal-getter and there are whispers that personal terms with the player have already been agreed. However, the clubs have yet to negotiate a transfer fee.
“Milan? That’s my hope,” Dzeko told reporters last night after netting a goal for his national side in a friendly international against Oman in Cannes.
“But I can’t talk about it as a done deal just yet.”
Werder team-mate Andrea Barzagli heaped praise on the 23-year-old, who scored 26 goals in 32 league matches last season to help Wolfsburg win
their first ever Bundesliga, and has compared him to Bayern Munich hitman Luca Toni.
