Giulio Donati: Looking forward to Bayer Leverkusen move

The 23-year-old has signed a four-year deal at the BayArena and moves for an undisclosed fee.

Donati has represented his country at Under-20 and Under-21 level and, after spending the past two seasons on loan at Serie B clubs, is hoping to step up and make an impact in the Bundesliga.

"Bayer is a top German club and also has a good reputation in Italy," he told his new club's website.

"I am looking forward to the Bundesliga and being in the Champions League this season with Leverkusen is a very special challenge.

"I'll give everything to achieve our goals with Bayer."

Donati played every minute of Italy's recent run to the European Under-21 Championship final in Israel and clearly caught the eye of Leverkusen director Wolfgang Wooden.

"With Giulio Donati we have a young, aspiring and committed player, which fits perfectly into the profile of Bayer Leverkusen," he said.

"He was a mainstay of the successful Italian team at the Under-21 European Championships in Israel.

"We are convinced that Donati will successfully fill the position of right-back."

m a big Rafa fan, but when he substitutes Ronaldo after 60 minutes of his first game, which Real draw 1-1, I don't see the Real fans being patient. He'll be gone before October is out.

ell, if he'd be unable to reject an offer from Barcelona or Madrid, he may as well join Arsenal while he's waiting for them to call. It's a logical progression.
