AC Milan confirm deals for Mexes, Taiwo

AC Milan have secured the services of Nigeria left-back Taye Taiwo and France defender Philippe Mexes for next season, Rossoneri coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed.

• Leonardo: Milan deserved title
• AC Milan seal Scudetto glory
• Ibrahimovic wants Milan treble
• Pirlo poised to leave champions

The Italian champions, who won the Scudetto on Saturday after a 0-0 draw at Roma, have already moved to strengthen their squad for the 2011-12 campaign.

Milan's interest in Mexes has been known for some time and the centre-back, who has already played his last game for Roma after requiring surgery on a knee ligament injury in April, will move to the San Siro on a free transfer.

He will be joined in defence by Marseille left-back Taiwo, who also arrives on a Bosman, with Allegri happy to have moved early to acquire the pair's services.

"In defence, Milan are sorted,'' Allegri said in a press conference on Monday. "We have taken (Philippe) Mexes and Taiwo.''

Taiwo, 26, has enjoyed a fine season with Marseille and scored the winning goal in last month's Coupe de France final, while Mexes will bring to an end a seven-year association with Roma.

Milan will look to take a step towards a prospective Double on Tuesday, when they travel to Palermo for their Coppa Italia semi-final return leg, having drawn 2-2 at the San Siro in April. The winners will likely face Inter Milan, who beat Roma 1-0 away in the first leg.
