    WOW! Finally!! CONGRATS bro!!! This is the BIGGEST MOVE of all time by a NIGERIAN brother in recent DECADES Cos AC MILAN is BIGGER than OSIMHEN’S NAPOLI, BIGGER than CHELSEA(MIKEL) BIGGER than MAN U(IGHALO)

    Congrats Chukwueze… this should be the beginning of your next level. Leonel Messi used to be a heavy left footer… he practised and mastered the usage of his right leg… Chukwueze, you have been a one-legged footballer since U-17 of 2015. It is time to get your game well-rounded so that some of us can start believing your game. You have what it takes but put in the work… I will never choose a one-legged player above a balanced double-footer! One love…

      @MERCY that’s why I said in RECENT DECADES not from the NNAMDI AZIKIWE ERA.

      Like ONE and HALF DECADE from MIKEL OBI 2006 CHELSEA MOVE…

      Maybe I shouldn’t have put “ALL TIME” but from the BREAK DOWN I gave am still RIGHT…

  • There is a reason I call him THE WAZZA DAZZLER CHUZZY. A big congratulation to you .

  • Though this is a massive transfer move but please put respect to Nigeria legend that have played the game. Taribo and taye taiwo have also played in AC. Okunowo and Amuneke have both played for Barcelona.

    Congratulations Chukwueze!!!!

    Chukwueze, God loves you so much that He makes your arrival to AC Milan possible. Therefore, the Lord God will not forsake you to continue to do your best for your Country, Nigeria.

    Congratulations to you Saamu on this big move.

    You have just shown the world that you dont have to go and battle relegation to get noticed by great clubs.

    • MONKEY POST 11 months ago

      Hehehehe
      @DR DREY this SEEMS to be a STYLISH SHADE to @AKP and CO for their SUPPORT on ARIBO and CO MOVES

      OYA @AKP what do you have to SAY?

    • Top5 Leaguers is all we want….. what they are fighting or what is fighting them is not our concern…… Enough of low standard players using our national team for a safe house……No more Turkey, Cyprus,Greece and division 2 players dominating the national team…..we must raise the standard .

    Congratulations Chuzy!!!
    Go make us proud#ACMillan
    AC Milan is a great force to reckon with.

    I have to reiterate it again, Chukwueze has a talent that has not be effectively utilised. He just need to continue work harder. He has the quality and if he continue to work harder like I said, he will win one of the most prestigious awards before he retires. I like skillful players because they can make difference in a game and Samuel Chukwueze can become a phenomenal player.

    Hahaha Jimmyball, na one one leg things ooo. One one leg movement.
    His right leg is only for standing. Perhaps they will teach him to use that right foot at Milan. Once he starts using both feet, defenders are in trouble!
    Congrats my man. Stay away from the gelatos, so you don’t put on weight!

  • Congratulations chukwueze…..If they said this is the biggest move by a Nigerian player we say we agree….More talents are coming…..The era of super chickens should be put to bed finally…..we need more players in top teams not turkey Cyprus Greece and division 2 players ……. Simple

  • My boys Dey vex, leverkusen and now ac Milan, Africa are not ready. Congrat don.

  • Splendid! Congratulations to Chukwueze for this awesome move. This will generate more interest from Nigerians towards the Italian Serie A. A league that has, presently, two of our best players, Oshimhen (potentially African player of the year for 2023) and Chukwueze.
