Official: Musacchio joins Milan

Italian giants Milan have officially completed the signing of Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio in a reported €18m deal.

The central defender successfully completed his medical in the northern Italian city last week but official confirmation of the deal was delayed.

“AC Milan announces the signing of Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal on a contract until June 30, 2021,” reads a statement on the Rossoneri’s official website.

SportMediaset and Gazzetta Dello Sport both previously reported the 26-year-old’s deal at the San Siro would be worth €2.5m per season.

The Argentine defender joined the Yellow Submarine from River Plate in 2009 and made over 275 appearances for the club, netting seven times.
