Torino Sign Abate

Torino have completed the signing of Milan starlet Ignazio Abate in a co-ownership deal.

The 21-year-old Abate, who is regarded as one of Italy’s best young talents, came up through the Milan youth system, however he has never played a league game for the senior side, having spent the last five seasons on loan at Napoli, Sampdoria, Piacenza, Modena and Empoli.

Milan only recently purchased full rights of Abate, as Empoli had previously owned half of his contract. They then swiftly offered the flying winger a new four-year contract.

Abate had been expected to be sent out on loan for the new season, however Torino have, somewhat surprisingly, signed him on a co-ownership deal.

The blonde-haired wideman is currently on international duty with the Italy-21 national team and was today chosen in Pierluigi Casiraghi’s 18-man squad for next month’s Olympic Games in Beijing.

Abate will join up with his new Torino team-mates once the Olympics are over. His signing should appease the Granata’s star man Alessandro Rosina, who last week complained that the club hadn’t signed any exciting players.
