Confirmed: Bruno Fornaroli signs for Perth Glory

Perth Glory have announced the signing of ex-Melbourne City talisman Bruno Fornaroli.

The Uruguayan marksman joins Tony Popovic's side after cancelling his contract with City last month.

He will join Glory for the start of the club's 2019/20 campaign and is set to make his debut for the club in July 13's high-profile friendly against Manchester United at Optus Stadium.

Widely acknowledged as one of the Hyundai A-League's greatest ever imports, the 31-year-old scored 57 goals in all competitions for City after his transfer from Uruguayan outfit Danubio in 2015.

But an ongoing saga with City coach Warren Joyce over the first half of the 2018/19 season resulted in months of speculation over his future in Victoria, which was resolved with his departure on February 26.

Former Sampdoria and Panathinaikos front man Fornaroli captained City 27 times in the Hyundai A-League over his hugely successful stint in Victoria.

Among his achievements was his Mark Viduka Medal-winning display in City's 1-0 FFA Cup final win over Sydney FC in 2016, the Melbourne club's only piece of silverware to date.

He was also the quickest to register 30 Hyundai A-League goals, which he achieved in a November 2016 clash against Newcastle Jets, bringing up that record in just 35 matches.

A two-time Uruguayan Primera Division winner with Nacional and Danubio, Fornaroli won the Hyundai A-League Golden Boot in 2015/16 with 23 goals in 27 games. 

The striker will wear the number 10 jersey for Perth Glory.
