Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set his sights on a clean sweep of trophies after joining AC Milan, while Robinho is looking to follow in the footsteps of other famous Brazilians to play for the club.
The arrival of the two strikers has raised expectations among Rossoneri supporters following a disappointing 2009/10 campaign.
Both are expected to make their debuts on Saturday at newly-promoted Cesena and Ibrahimovic is raring to go after joining on loan from Barcelona with a view to a permanent switch.
The Sweden international believes Milan have the quality to not only triumph on the domestic front but also win the UEFA Champions League.
"I have played in so many teams before in my career but this is the nicest jersey," he said at a press conference to unveil the big-name signings.
"Milan must win everything. Therefore, I hope to conquer the scudetto and the Champions League and I believe Milan can do it.
"I return to Italy with more hunger and will.
"I am certain, just as I am certain that we are stronger than Inter and that we will finish first.
"I am motivated as I've never been before in my career."
Robinho joins compatriots Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato at the San Siro and is looking forward to the new challenge.
He feels he has a point to prove after a difficult time at Manchester City, although he did regain form during a loan spell with Santos last season.
"I am delighted," said the 26-year-old.
"In the summer, I had some contact with other teams but no concrete offer.
"I always wanted to play at Milan, it's one of the best European teams and all the Brazilians that have played here have had an amazing history.
"I will try to work hard and win as much as possible.
"I have come here to play and I will do my best to give my contribution."
