Salvatore Bocchetti has put pen to paper and said ‘I am very excited and Milan was always my dream club.’

Milan have signed a reinforcement for their underwhelming back-line and Salvatore Bocchetti is joining the red and blacks of Filippo Inzaghi on loan until the end of the season, with an option to be bought permanently in the summer.

“AC Milan announce the loan signing of Salvatore Bocchetti from Spartak Moscow until 30 June 2015,” the statement on acmilan.com reads today.

“Bocchetti returns to Italian football after four seasons playing in Russia with Rubin Kazan and Spartak Moscow where he won the Russian Cup and Super Cup. The 28-year-old defender played 60 times for Genoa between 2008 and 2010 and in that time won five Italy caps including a call-up to the squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Salvatore has plenty of European experience having playing 20 times in Europa League and six games in the Champions League.”

Bocchetti arrived to Italy last night and this morning he had the medical check-ups. “I am very excited and Milan was always my dream club to join,” he said. “I am really happy but it has not sunk in yet. I cannot wait to get down to work. I want to make my contribution for the team and to the coach.

“I am really happy to be here. It is an incredible thing for me. I am a central defender but I have no problem playing in another position. The coach will make his decision and I will look to do my best. I am at home either in the centre of defence or as a full-back. It is no problem for me. Forza Milan.”

It’s widely believed that Milan have also secured the transfer of Palermo’s Ezequiel Muñoz (24, center back) for the summer when he becomes a free agent. They made an offer (€1.5m) to sign him permanently in this window but an agreement, as of this time, hasn’t been reached.

Milan have conceded 25 goals this season and Inzaghi will hope Bocchetti will help to stabilize it.

Fester should be given a janitorial job until his contract concludes. To fire him we have to pay him a lot of money, not worth it. Instead let’s give him a job worthy of his caliber until the bastard keels over or decides to quit and not get a single dime.
We can therefore take his f’n name of the hall of fame as well.

At least it’s a loan …
