Milan CEO Marco Fassone says “I think we’ve completed the team” with the signing of Nikola Kalinic.
It was officially confirmed earlier today that the Croatian striker has joined from Fiorentina, on loan with an obligation to buy next summer.
“With Nikola I think we’ve completed the team,” Fassone said as Kalinic signed his contract live on Facebook.
“We’ve made 11 signings this year and this one has been a long and difficult story. If we’re here and able to tell it though it’s because he [Kalinic] wanted to become a Rossonero so much.
“He has a boundless and historic love for our shirt and that’s what allowed us to unlock this long negotiation that Massimiliano [Mirabelli, the sporting director] had with Fiorentina.
“He’s the player we wanted with experience and quality. We’ve always talked about a mix, and about completing the spine that’s also made up of [Leonardo] Bonucci and [Lucas] Biglia.
“Nikola completes the squad, finally we’ve done it and we’re proud he’s a new Milan player.”
