The sporting director of AZ Alkmaar, Max Huiberts, has extended his best wishes to Tijjani Reijnders after he completed his move to AC Milan.
Through a statement on their official website earlier today, Milan announced that Reijnders has joined the Rossoneri from AZ Alkmaar on a permanent basis with the Dutch midfielder having signed a contract with the Rossoneri until 30 June 2028.
At times it seemed like the negotiation with the Eredivisie side was going to drag on for weeks like the one with Club Brugge did for Charles De Ketelaere, but Milan did eventually strike a deal in time to bring him in before the departure for the tour of the USA.
Huiberts commented on the sale of Reijnders to Milan, which is the second-highest in club history after Vincent Janssen’s move to Spurs, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
“An example for many. Reijnders’ trajectory and development are an example for many. He had to be patient, he did years with Jong AZ and on loan with RKC in the Eredivisie before he got his chance and seized it,” he said.
“Reijnders had a solid season. Also thanks to the European campaign, he became the subject of attention from foreign top clubs. AZ will miss his football qualities and his positive character, everyone sincerely wishes him to take this step.”
