RICCARDO MONTOLIVO has gone through the first stages of his medical check-ups ahead of move.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri has already announced Riccardo Montolivo will be joining the Rossoneri next season and the Caravaggio-born regista was today at Milanello for the first parts of his medical check-ups.
The former Fiorentina man comes on a free transfer as his contract with the Viola is set to expire next month. He will probably be signing the deal with Milan already tomorrow after doing the rest of the tests.
According to reports in Italia, Montolivo will put pen to paper on Thursday. He will sign a four-year deal and will wear the No. 18 shirt – currently owned by Alberto Aquilani who is expected to leave. There are different reports regarding Monty’s salary as some sources claim he’ll earn €3.5m while others indicate €2 million.
Allegri has already stated that the 27-year-old, who is currently injured but will feature in the Euro’s with Prandelli’s Azzurri, will replace Mark Van Bommel in terms of position of the pitch – in front of the defense.
