Milan[edit]

In the 2008 Off-Season transfer window, Tabare Viudez attracted the attention of Milan along with Mathias Cardacio. Both players signed for the club after undergoing trials. Tabare Viudez was to wear the number '20' shirt, previously worn by Yoann Gourcuff.[3] The Fonseca Group, who have the rights of the player, led the negotiations to transfer Viudez to the San Siro for the upcoming Serie A 2008–09 season. The Montevideo-born player, was relishing the new chapter in his career. 'I cannot believe it. It's a terrific jump up in my career,' he said. 'I must confess I have mixed feelings - nervousness and joy. This is a big step forward for me.' It was not known yet whether Viudez was to play for the first-team, play for Milan's Primavera squad (Under-20) or go out on loan for the season.[4]

Viudez made several pre-season appearances for Milan. After coming on as a substitute at the half for Alberto Paloschi against Manchester City, Ancelotti praised his movement and pace after the match declaring him a player that can be relied on in the future, despite the narrow 1–0 loss.[5] Viudez made his competitive debut in the Serie A coming on as a late substitute for David Beckham in a 3–0 win over Atalanta on 8 March 2009.
