Former Italy international Alberto Aquilani has revealed that he agreed to join Spanish club Las Palmas following a heart-to-heart talk with former AC Milan teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The 33-year-old signed for the La Liga minnows on a two-year contract and is expected to fill the void left by the Ghanaian.
In a report covered by ESPN, the former AS Roma man admitted that Boateng had a huge role to play in enticing him to join the Yellow Canary, he said: "Prince told me this is an amazing place to play and I’m looking forward to starting this new chapter in my career. As well as technique and experience, I can offer other physical and mental aspects and footballing characteristics… everything I know. [LaLiga] has always been attractive to me and although I had other offers I decided to come to Las Palmas. I like the way the team plays and the way they move the ball around. Las Palmas have very good players and I’m looking to working together."
