Antonio Cassano happily posed with a Milan jersey and said “it suits me. Who wouldn't agree to join the Rossoneri?”
It is now confirmed that there is a basic agreement for the transfer, held up only by the €5m owed to his previous club Real Madrid.
Television show Striscia La Notizia visited Cassano with the gift of his own personalised Milan jersey.
“It suits me, doesn't it? It really looks good on me and I will gladly accept it,” he grinned while posing with the shirt.
“Who wouldn't agree to join the Rossoneri, who along with Real Madrid are the greatest clubs in history?
“Of course my time in Madrid was a disaster! We'll see what happens in the next few days. There are still a few details and then we'll see.”
The same show had visited Cassano after his row with Sampdoria President Riccardo Garrone.
This week the tribunal ruled Samp could not terminate his contract due to that incident, but he has been suspended without pay until February 1 2011 and ordered to collect only half his current wages to the end of the contract.
“I got a real pasting and lost quite a lot of money.”
