Bakaye Traore signs for AC Milan

Nancy has confirmed that the Mali international midfielder will leave the Ligue 1 club on a free transfer in June and will ply his trade at San Siro next season.
Nancy has announced on its official website that Bakaye Traore will join AC Milan in the summer.

The Mali international penned a three-year contract with the Rossoneri, who will secure the player on a free transfer when his contract expires in June.

Traore had already announced the move on Tuesday, speaking of his delight to have signed for the Serie A side.

The 27-year-old, who had also been linked with Newcastle and Olympique de Marseille, reached an agreement with Milan in mid-April, but waited for the club to secure its Ligue 1 status before announcing the switch.

Traore has been at Nancy since 2009, when he joined the club from Ligue 2 outfit Amiens.
