Milan sign Musacchio from Villarreal

AC Milan have announced the signing of centre-back Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal on a four-year deal.

Musacchio to Villarreal for €18 million

The defender underwent a medical last week and he has now formalised his move to San Siro, with Milan believed to have paid a fee in the region of €18million.

The 26-year-old started his professional career with River Plate before joining Villarreal in 2009.

Key part of a strong Villarreal defence

He made well over 200 appearances in all competitions, but will now continue his career in Serie A.

In his final season on the Mediterranean coast, Musacchio was a key part of a Villarreal defence that apart from that of Atlético Madrid, was the most miserly in LaLiga.
