New AC Milan signing Luiz Adriano seems good for Club

New AC Milan signing Luiz Adriano claims that he will give his everything for the Italian Serie A club.

The striker has moved from Shakhtar Donetsk, where he spent the best part of the last eight years. Even though he is a Brazilian, Adriano resisted the option of moving to a top European club much earlier in his career. Now 28, he comes to Milan at the peak of his career. He has cost the Italian club around £ 8 million. His first job will be to score a lot of goals and help Milan reach their former glory days.

The club has only been slipping from the elite list due to significant budget cuts from owner Silvio Berlusconi. This summer, though, the club has been witnessing a little change in the transfer policy, as they have brought in players of real substance. One of them is Adriano and he has scored lots of goals during his time in the Ukrainian league. Even though the Italian Serie A will be a little more competitive than the Ukrainian league, Adriano is confident of being a success at the San Siro. Doing well at Milan will also help Adriano gets some exposure at the international level. He has featured in only four games for the Brazilian national team.

"I'm very happy to be here, and I can't wait to make myself available for the coach. I worked with a personal trainer in Brazil, so physically I'm fine. I'm very happy to play for Milan, and I'll give my best for this shirt. Many clubs were interested, but I decided to come to Milan.Why? For the club's history, and for what they've done in football. There's also a great tradition of Brazilian players here, so I'm happy," said the striker after his move to Milan.
