AC Milan have signed Italy centre-forward Christian Vieri, who was released by neighbours FC Internazionale Milano.
Contract until 2007
Vieri, 32 next week, has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with the team that finished second in Serie A in 2004/05. "'Bobo' Vieri has officially joined Milan," said a statement on the Milan website. "The Rossoneri have signed the player and his contract will run until 30 June 2007."
Century of goals
Vieri parted company with Inter by mutual consent last Friday, despite having a year left on his contract, following six seasons with the Nerazzurri in which he scored 102 goals in 143 league games. He will compete for a place in Milan's attack with Andriy Shevchenko, Filippo Inzaghi and Jon Dahl Tomasson.
