AC Milan officially announced yesterday that Rade Krunic has joined from Empoli.

Per the club’s official website:

AC Milan (the “Club”) has today announced the acquisition of Rade Krunić from Empoli FC. The Bosnian midfielder has signed a five year contract with the Club.

Born in Foča on October 7, 1993, Krunić started his professional career in 2012 with his hometown team, Sutjeska Foča, recording 15 appearances and scoring 3 goals. In 2013, Rade moved to Serbia, signing for Donji Srem, before joining Borac Čačak in 2014. The midfielder signed for Empoli FC during the 2015-2016 season, and here recorded 119 appearances, and scored 12 goals across four seasons (three in Serie A and one in Serie B). Rade has also earned 10 international caps with the Bosnian National team, scoring 1 goal. AC Milan today welcomes Krunić to the Rossoneri Family.

That’s a pretty dry statement from the club, to be honest, so you should instead watch the video that the club made to announce the deal. It’s about time that Milan join 2019 with some interesting Social Media content.

Now if only the Twitter account could stop doing the stupid videos for the lineups and just make a clean Twitter card for the lineup life would be grand.
