A tailor-made score has been established to allow the footballer to ensure his commitments with the festival, broadcast live for five nights from Tuesday, March 2, while playing with the Milan club.
Milan, second in Serie A, four points behind city rivals Inter, play at home against Udinese on March 3 in the evening and at Verona on Sunday, March 7 in the afternoon.
"He will be here (San Remo) on Tuesday, on Wednesday he will have a match, and he will return from Thursday to Saturday," explained Amadeus, the organiser of the musical festival.
Created back in 1951 in the tourist resort of San Remo, a short hop from the French Riviera, the festival has helped launch several top Italian names from Eros Ramazzotti to Andrea Bocelli. The Swedish star will train on Monday at his team's Milanello training centre, the day after Sunday's match against Roma.
