Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has completed his transfer to Italian club AC Monza.
The 33-year-old playmaker has joined the newly-promoted Serie B side on a one-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.
Boateng was previously on the books of Italian Serie A outfit Fiorentina having spent the second round of the 2019/20 season on loan at Turkish giants Besiktas.
Monza released the following statement on their official website:
“AC Monza announces that they have definitively acquired Kevin-Prince Boateng from Fiorentina, who has signed a contract until 30/6/2021, with the option of renewal for the second year, subject to certain conditions,” the club announced.
“The 11th purchase of the red and white summer is a player with a prestigious curriculum, with experiences in Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham and Barcelona, among other,” a club statement read.
Boateng has reunited with former AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi and CEO Adriano Galliani at Monza.
“After the experiences with Borussia Dortmund and Portsmouth, he moved to Milan in the summer of 2010. With the club of Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani he immediately won the Scudetto and the Italian Super Cup.”
“In Milan he played for three seasons and then returned to the club in January 2016 for six months, when he was also coached by Cristian Brocchi, who now finds himself in Monza,” another statement read.
Boateng has netted twice in 15 international matches for Ghana.
