MILAN, Italy -- AC Milan acquired Brazilian striker Robinho on Tuesday from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee, just two years after City signed him for a British record transfer fee of $50 million from Real Madrid.

Robinho made just 41 appearances for Manchester City and spent the second half of last season on loan at Santos in Brazil. The 26-year-old is a starter for Brazil, but never lived up to expectations at City.

"All at City wish him well in his future career," read a statement on City's website.

"I am very happy," Robinho said. "Milan is an excellent club."

Robinho joins Zlatan Ibrahimovic as new additions at AC Milan. Ibrahimovic was acquired on loan from Barcelona by the Italian giants earlier this week, and Milan can make the move permanent next season for $30 million.
