De Sciglio Joins Real Madrid
Real Madrid have completed the signing of Italian full back Mattia de Sciglio
from A.C Milan.
The young defender joins Los Blancos
for a fee of around £15M
. The highly rated full back is tipped to become the next Maldini and is well known across Europe.
Mattia has been at A.C Milan all of his career and signed for the club when he was 10 and he rose up the youth system before making 30 appearances in the league for Milan.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane spoke about the new Madrid player at a press conference earlier today ahead of their La Liga opener against Real Betis.
"He is a top talent. He can play on the left and the right and he will become something special. I think we have a bright young team now and we can go far with them. I promise to nurture them into great players and I promise you in the next couple of years we will be a dominant club in world football".
"Mattia will play on Sunday and he has had a full pre season so he should be fit and ready to play this weekend".
Also this week Real Madrid found out their Group for the Uefa Champions League group stage and found out that it was labelled as The Group Of Death
The Group contains A.C Milan, Manchester City
and Zidane was surprised at the tough group but admitted he knows his team will qualify.
"One big European club will leave the competition earlier this season. How these 3 clubs can be put together I don't know. Hopefully we will make it and qualify for the knockout rounds of the competition".
