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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
