Juventus benchwarmer Nicola Legrottaglie has confirmed “tomorrow I will sign for Milan.”
The veteran had been expected to join hometown club Bari, but there has been a sudden change of plan approaching transfer deadline day.
“Tomorrow I will sign for Milan,” he told Sky Sport Italia television this evening.
“Am I upset at how it ended with Juve? We'll see. When I say goodbye to everyone at Juventus, I will say what I think.”
The 34-year-old had been with the Bianconeri since 2003, albeit with occasional loan spells at Bologna and Siena.
Milan are looking for a centre-back with experience in case Alessandro Nesta's shoulder injury proves to be serious.
