Leandro Damian Grimi (born February 9, 1985 in San Lorenzo, Santa Fe) is an Argentine football defender. He was signed in January 2007 by Italian Serie A club A.C. Milan from Racing Club de Avellaneda [1]. He also owns an Italian passport.

He started playing football for Club Atlético Huracán, being then sold to Racing Club de Avellaneda in 2006 for 750,000€. Grimi, elected best young player of the 2006 Argentine Apertura tournament[1], was signed by AC Milan on January 2007 for a sum of €2 mi.[2] His first match with the rossoneri was a friendly against Birkirkara FC, while in Malta on a training camp, but his official debut came in a Coppa Italia home match against Serie B team Arezzo, won 2-0. On April 18, 2007 he made his debut in Serie A against Ascoli, jumping in for the last 10 minutes.

He has been loaned out by AC Milan for the 2007-08 in order to gain some first team experience, with Siena taking him for the whole season. In January, 2008, was loaned to Sporting Clube de Portugal.[3] Since making his move to Sporting, he has made himself a regular in the first team whilst also helping Sporting to a Portuguese Cup win, 2nd place in the Portuguese Liga and the Quarter-Finals in the UEFA Cup.

On 16 July 2008, AC Milan announced they had sold Grimi to Sporting Lisbon. He signed a five year contract, with the Lisbon club paying ACMilan €2.5m plus 35% of his future transfer fees. His minimum-fee release clause amounts to €25m.[4]
