AC Milan confirmed the signing of Urby Emanuelson from Ajax Amsterdam.

Ajax decided to cash on the player, as the 24 years old winger was in the last six months of the contract. Emanuelson started his career at Ajax and played only for the Dutch club.

He made 151 appearances and scored 16 goals for Ajax. The versatile midfielder made also 11 appearances for Netherlands.

Emanuelson probably impressed Milan staff in this two games played against them in Champions League. The Dutch has also the advantage that he can play on almost every position on the left side.
Emanuelson started as a left back at Ajax but in time he moved to a more attacking position.

With this transfer Milan are trying to fill the void left by Ronaldinho’s departure. Emanuelson will probably face competition from Robinho or Antonini for a starting role in Milan squad.
