Alberto Aquilani Completes Loan Move To AC Milan

Alberto Aquilani has officially moved from Liverpool to AC Milan on loan, with an option to buy at the end of the season. The Italian international spent last season on loan at Juventus, but after the Old Lady picked up Andrea Pirlo from Milan, there wasn't much room left for Aquilani. So he went back to Anfield, where he'd had a disappointing first season, and Liverpool's crowded midfield rendered it unlikely that he'd have another chance to prove himself. With a permanent deal at Juve off the table, it looked like Aquilani would join Fiorentina, but the Viola couldn't give him what he wanted. Instead, he lands with last year's champions -- and if it's true they can make the move permanent for just €6m, then what a steal.

Aquilani likely won't be part of the regular starting XI at Milan -- they also have a dearth of midfielders -- but with the desire to progress further in the Champions League this season, as well as to retain the scudetto, having him makes perfect sense. He adds a bit of creativity and flair, and gives Massimo Allegri an extra tool in his kit.
