Madrid: Earlier this morning Rossoneri general manager Adriano Galliani confirmed that an agreement had been reached with Real Madrid for the frontman, and the official confirmation has now arrived.

A statement on Milan`s official website reads:

"AC Milan communicate they have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the purchase of striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.”

"The Dutch footballer will be subjected to the medical checks tomorrow, after which he will sign a contract which will keep him at the Rossoneri club until 30 June 2013."

Huntelaar has apparently signed a four-year contract with the San Siro club. The transfer fee Milan have paid Real Madrid is believed to be €15 million.

This represents Milan`s first significant signing of the summer. The Italian giants had made no secret of their intention to buy a top-class striker, and they will now be hoping that Huntelaar proves to be that man.

The 25-year-old, who only joined Real Madrid from Ajax in January for €20m, scored eight goals in 20 games for the Blancos before being deemed surplus to requirements following the return as president of Florentino Perez this summer.
