The day has felt like an eternity in coming but more confirmations have arrived stating that Divock Origi will be AC Milan’s first signing of the summer.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via TMW) writes that we must wait a few more days and then it will finally be time for Origi to announce himself as a new Milan player. The striker is currently completing his recovery from an injury that forced him to miss the season finale at Liverpool but he will soon be able to undergo the medical examinations and sign his contract.
Some time in the next few days the Belgian will complete the ‘first day’ including the medical, sports fitness test and the signing of the contract at Casa Milan and then will officially introduce himself to the Milan fans.
The report adds that Origi will be the only arrival in the role of centre-forward in the summer market which says a lot about the confidence Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have in the 26-year-old.
The signing of Origi should arrive after the renewal of Maldini and Massara. He was the victim of a muscle problem that forced him to miss two months, as well as 13 games, with Liverpool but the feeling is that in July Origi will be able to present himself at Milanello back at 100%.
