Michael Bradley in Serie A

A.C. ChievoVerona tonight just signed Michael Bradley from Borussia Mongladbach for an undisclosed fee.

Bradley joins a team that is in need of help in the midfield and Bradley is expected to help solidify that lineup. They are expecting to introduce him to the media at noon tomorrow.

Unfortunately, Bradley has a daunting task ahead of him. No American (USMNT) player has plied their trade in Serie A successfully, and it has meant the death knell for many such as Ferrari and Szetela.

Bradley has had a mixed career in Europe. 26 goals in 133 matches between Heerenveen and Borussia, so a logical step in development would be Italy or England and with no one knocking down his door after a brief loan to Aston Villa, Bradley signs with Serie A outfit Chievo.

What happens, we'll see as soon as the league decides to start their season soon.
