Milan's latest new signing Didac Vila is overjoyed at joining “the best club in Europe and the side with the most trophies in the world.”
The Rossoneri completed their swoop for Espanyol star Didac on Friday and he begins training with his teammates today.
“I am very happy to be here and ready for the challenges that await me,” he told the official Milan website.
“I hope the fans will grow to love me the same way the Espanyol supporters did. I am a left-back, but feel able to play both in a defensive and offensive role.
“I think that I have joined the best club in Europe and the side with the most trophies in the world.”
Milan had been linked with Domenico Criscito of Genoa for this role, but Vice-President Adriano Galliani insisted he was always the primary target.
“We'd been tracking this player for some time and got a tip from our talent scout Andrea Valdinoci in August, when I was in Barcelona for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I met the Espanyol directors and they spoke very highly of him. Now Didac will have his medical and, after registering the contract, will be available for the next game with Lazio.”
Milan are in action this evening against Catania.
