The Montreal Impact have done well to secure the signing of such a high profile player, a player who whilst 36 years of age is still very able to put in a season or two, maybe more, at the Canadian club.

Nesta has racked up over 300 appearances for AC Milan in his ten year spell at the San Siro during which the experienced centre back won the Serie A title twice and has two Champions League winners medals. The Rome born defender nine seasons in the Lazio first team before moving to Milan and picked up 78 caps before retiring after the 2006 World Cup, during which injury forced him out of the knockout stages and the final against France.
