Milan have officially completed the signing of Roma defender Alessio Romagnoli, who has signed a contract until 2020.
The Rossoneri’s pursuit of the Italian Under-21 international has been one of the longest-running transfer sagas of the summer, but centre-back finally underwent a medical today after the two clubs agreed a fee.
“Welcome, Alessio,” joint-CEO Adriano Galliani wrote in a statement on the club’s official website.
“You’ve signed a contract with us until June 30, 2020 and we’re really happy.
“You’re a 20-year-old lad, and that’s why we think you have plenty of time to become one of our symbols, one of those who brands their name on the ball in the tradition of the great defenders of the Rossoneri school, a standard who we can raise high in San Siro.
“A big hug from all of us at Milan, and forza Alessio!”
