Mattia Destro signs for Milan!

As reported numerous time, the young Italian has made the switch from Roma

Oh, well here's a nice present to start the day:

It took a while and a lot of denying the deal from both sides but the chubby faced attacker has joined on a season loan. The deal has a clause for a permanent transfer which is what is most likely since Torres is never, ever, coming back.

Destro's been on the bench for Roma this term, even though he does have a good scoring record --24 in 57 games. He just doesn't fit into the direction of the team at the moment. So, we're able to steal a young, quality forward who can battle to be the focal point that we desperately need in attack. It's no secret how much more competent Milan look with an actual number nine.

He could do away with the beard though, it's disgusting.

Also, he was an Inter youth product, so that's always fun.
