Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is in Italy today to complete his move to AC Milan.

Essien will finalise his switch this weekend.

"I will do my best for Milan. Seedorf? I spoke with him two days ago," he told journalists while wearing a red and black scarf.

"Have I heard from Muntari? Yes, I have heard from him. I'm happy to be at Milan. It's a great club.

"I want to thank Abramovich, the squad and Mourinho, who gave me the chance to join Milan. I decided to join Milan because of Seedorf. He is a great man and I hope that he will also become a great manager.

"I can't wait to play for Milan. Kaka and Balotelli are great players."
