A transfer deadline day that featured many rumours as usual but many unlikely and outlandish ones like Cesc Fabregas, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere ended with a player long requested by Montella.
Mati Fernandez, the 30 years old Argentina born Chilean attacking midfielder, snubbed Cagliari and accepted a move to Milan. He join on initial loan with an option to buy. The option is said to be a low fee. Montella was the player’s coach while at Fiorentina.
He joins a Milan midfield in desperate need of creativity and skill, however the same midfield is now crowded with Montolivo, Kucka, Bertolacci, Sosa, Poli, Honda, Bonaventura, Pasalic and Locatelli vying for playing time.
