Krzysztof Piątek has signed for Hertha and he will be wearing the #7 shirt.
Yesterday the deal was struck and today Piątek, who only joined Milan last season from Genoa, signed the contract at the German club Hertha BSC.
“Milan announces the agreement with Hertha for the definitive transfer of the player Piątek to the German Club,” a statement on the Rossoneri’s site reads.
“The Club would like to thank the player for his professional commitment and wishes him all the best for his future career.” Piątek’s start to his Milan career was heavenly, as he carried his form from Genoa. However, this season, with the number 9 on his back, he disappointed hugely.
In 41 appearances in the Milan shirt, the Polish striker scored 16 times. He will try to get back to scoring with the Hertha shirt, who are believed to have paid €27-28m for him and doubled his salary.
