Official – AC Milan complete the signing of Tiago Dias

AC Milan have closed the purchase of Portuguese wonderkid Tiago Dias from Benfica. The player will arrive in Milano to sign a new contract with the rossoneri.

It was already known for several days that Tiago Dias would soon join the Primavera team, the 19 year old talent of SL Benfica that will strengthen the young squad trained by Gennaro Gattuso.

Quotidiano Sportivo reveals that in the coming hours the offensive right winger will arrive in Milano to sign a new contract with the rossoneri. Regarding the details of this interesting operation, the young Portuguese will arrive in Italy at no cost. Benfica, however, will be entitled to 30% of the amount earned by any future resale of Tiago Dias by AC Milan. The 19 year old is considered as the new Cristiano Ronaldo in his homeland. Tiago Dias possesses good technique, speed, powerful shot and like his compatriot he is he is very quick with the ball at his feet. 

The promising right winger, that can also play on the left, through Instagram has already posted the airline ticket for his trip to Milano. There is great curiosity to see him at work with the red and black shirt of Primavera. Sports director Massimiliano Mirabelli is highly active on the market trying to give U21 manager Gattuso the needed new players to have great season. Tiago Dias is not the only planed signing, the rossoneri are evaluating several young talents across Europe that can have a bright future in San Siro.

The youth sector of Benfica is one of the best in Europe and therefore is expected that the new Milan talent will prove to be a strong reinforcement, although it will take some time to adapt in a completely new reality compared to that lived in Portugal in recent years. Definitely a step forward in his career, hoping to land in the first team as soon as possible.
