Official: AC Milan confirm signing of Samuel Chukwueze

Milan has completed the signing of Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal in a deal worth approximately €28 million, including add-ons.

The Nigerian striker successfully passed his medical tests and has signed a five-year contract with the Rossoneri until 2028. Chukwueze has chosen to wear the Number 21 jersey for the upcoming season at San Siro.

The deal was negotiated for a base fee of €20 million, with the potential for an additional €8 million in various add-ons and performance-related bonuses.

As part of the agreement, Milan has also loaned defender Matteo Gabbia to Villarreal for the duration of the upcoming season, without an option to buy.

Chukwueze, who primarily plays on the right side of attack, will provide an attacking option that complements Rafael Leao on the left. The 24-year-old had an impressive season at Villarreal, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists in 50 competitive appearances for Villarreal last season.

“AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of Samuel Chimerenka Chukwueze from Villarreal CF. The Nigerian forward has signed for the Rossoneri until 30 June 2028.

“Born in Umuahia (Nigeria) on 22 May 1999, Samuel came through the Diamond Football Academy Youth Sector before moving to Villarreal in 2017.

“With the Spanish club’s B team, he played 20 games and scored four goals before making his debut with the senior team in September 2018, going on to feature 207 times, scoring 37 goals, and winning 1 Europa League. He has been capped 28 times for Nigeria and scored four goals.

“Samuel Chukwueze has chosen the number 21 jersey.”
