[ITALY] Robinho is happy to be at AC Milan, his fourth club in the last two years, and so are Italian fans. They crashed the Milan web site as news of the 26-year-old Brazilian's transfer from Manchester City became official.

"I am delighted to have been given this opportunity and I want to prove my worth," said Robinho. "My ambition is to play well and to help Milan regain the scudetto."

Milan paid Manchester City $29 million plus bonuses, according to Milan director Adriano Galliani, for Robinho, who had cost City more than $50 million when he signed from Real Madrid two years ago.

But he quickly fell out of favor with City manager Roberto Mancini and was loaned to his former Brazilian club, Santos.

Robinho's signing completed a major reshuffling in the Milan attack.

Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrived on a one-year loan from Barcelona with the option to make it a permanent move at the end of the season for $30 million, while Milan shipped Dutch international Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to German club Schalke 04 for $19 million and 28-year-old Italian striker Marco Borriello to Roma for an initial loan fee of $2.5 million.

In a busy deadline day for the Rossoneri, Georgian international defender Kakha Kaladze, a nine-year veteran at Milan, was transfered to Genoa.
