Luiz Adriano: Playing with Ibrahimovic at AC Milan would be amazing

The Brazilian forward likes the idea of playing alongside the Swedish striker for the Rossoneri, who has been linked with a return to San Siro from Paris Saint-Germain
AC Milan summer signing Luiz Adriano is excited by the prospect of playing alongside Carlos Bacca and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at San Siro, despite the latter looking an unlikely prospect.

Luiz Adriano and Bacca were brought in as coach Sinisa Mihajlovic looks to revamp a team who finished a lowly 10th in Serie A last season under Filippo Inzaghi.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi also wants to bring back Paris Saint-Germain striker Ibrahimovic - who spent two seasons wearing a Rossoneri shirt before his departure for France in 2012.

Despite the Italian giants having no European football to offer the Swede and being less financially secure than the Ligue 1 champions, Luiz Adriano says that it would be great to line up with Ibrahimovic and Bacca in 2015-16.

"It would be nice to play alongside two great player such as Bacca and Ibra," the Brazilian, who joins from Shakhtar Donetsk, told reporters pon his arrival in Italy.

The 28-year-old also explained that he had chosen to join Milan for an estimated €8 million (£5.6m) over other clubs due to their history – both in terms of winning trophies and fielding Brazilians.

"I chose Milan because of the history it has and what it has achieved in a footballing sense," he enthused. "There is also a great tradition of Brazilian players and I'm happy to be here.

"I'm fine, I've worked with a personal trainer in Brazil to get in shape. There was interest from a number of clubs but I decided on Milan."
