New AC Milan forward Robinho has promised to give everything in a bid to help the Rossoneri return to the top in Italy and in Europe.

The Brazilian was among the big signings in Italian football before the transfer deadline after moving to the club for an undisclosed fee from Manchester City.

He said: "I hope with the rest of my team-mates to be able to contribute to hand many titles to this club."

Robinho's arrival led to the departure of strikers Marco Borriello and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Borriello was expected to join Juventus but instead joined Roma on loan.

Huntelaar, meanwhile, never met the expectations of AC Milan last season when he scored seven goals for the Rossoneri in his first season at the club. The Holland international played at the World Cup this summer and will now try to make an impact in the Bundesliga with Schalke.

As for Robinho, he is thrilled to be moving to another big league in Europe, a place where other Brazilians call home. He will be a team-mate of Ronaldinho and Thiago Silva.

"Milan has great players and it's a fantastic side with a very important history," said Robinho on the club's website,

"Kaka has always spoken to me very well about Milan and now I know that the Brazilian players in the team will give me a great hand in adapting to the team.

"I will work very hard to make the fans very happy. I want to bring so much joy to them."
