The World Cup might still be going on, but Milan’s started their training camp, getting ready for preseason. And while there hasn’t been a ton of movement for Milan, at least one new face is in camp.

Alen Halilovic, who came to Milan after his contract was cancelled by Hamburger SV, wrote on Instagram:

I would like to thank my former clubs Las Palmas and Hamburger SV for everything, now it’s time for a new chapter in my career.

Now I’m a player of Milan! Such a big club with a great history. I really can’t wait to wear this legendary jersey and do my best for the Rossoneri! Forza Milan!

At least one player is excited about the future at Milan, right?
