Milan have struck a deal for Real Betis striker Ricardo Oliveira.
Milan have wasted little time in finding a new striker after giving up on Ronaldo, as they have struck a deal for his fellow countryman Ricardo Oliveira.
The Brazilian striker has been in conflict with Real Betis after returning late for pre-season training following a loan spell at Sao Paulo.
Betis find him £600,000 for his indiscipline - but that looks to be his last involvement with the club as he is now ready to pen a four-year deal with Milan.
Oliveira is undergoing medical checks in Italy before they announce his capture for a fee believed to be £10 million.
"I happy to be here," said Oliviera upon his arrival in Italy.
"I am happy to be signing for such an important side as Milan."
