Looks like Keita to Monaco

€30 million + bonuses. Bid reportedly accepted. The player could still refuse to go there I guess...

We need someone, but time is running out for this window.
The other Keita has agreed to join Pool next summer.

The first few games of the season from a tactical perspective were not an improvement compared to the last season. I hope I'm wrong about him, and I would gladly apologize if he proves me wrong with the results.

Looking foward to this season of domestic and , finally, european football.

I fully agree with this.
Only suso/jack/borini who can play winger, i dont know why even though in paper we have good players fit for 3-4-1-2, he consistently use 4-3-3 and place players like niang out of position. I know, the last time we use 3-5-2, we didnt play well. But i guess it's because we almost never played the formation properly. Last, hakan's role is a central attacking midfielder and striker as far as i know, but not as a central midfielder. Yes, he did surprisingly well, but one bad match and some people in my town said he only good as a freekicker just like rogerio ceni placed in central midfielder Devilol
Calhanoglu actually suits left winger BUT he has been better playing left CM compared to Bonaventura which leaves Calhanoglu plays as CM and Bona as left winger. Problem arised with Bona's injury and we stuck with Borini playing left wing since no player available for left CM.

If we cant get left winger, at least get CM so Calhanoglu can play left wing. He can play like Suso, from wide position and plays towards box (not as pure winger). Calhanoglu has good long shot and accurate long passes.
I really don't know why we insist on playing 4-3-3. We literary have no wingers in this squad. Suso and Bonaventura IS IT, when it comes to wingers. And even those two, you can make an argument that they are more "hybrids" between winger/AM. You could thrown Calhanoglu in that description too. Borini is not a winger. From what I've seen of him, he resembles a SS more than anything else.

3-4-2-1, 3-4-1-2 are the best formations for this squad.

1. Gives 2 of Bonaventura/Suso/Calhanoglu the ability to free roam as well as limits the need for them to consistently track players back all the way back to our own goal-line.

2. It puts Conti and Rodriguez in the position to attack and be at their best without having to worry too much about leaving gaps behind, since we have an extra CB back there. Let's not forget Conti was quite possibly the best in Italy in this position...so lets put him in the position in which he performed so well that it made us pay 25mil for him.

3. Puts Bonucci in his natural habitat. We can't hide the fact that he has looked very shaky in a back 4. Not saying he won't improve or that he can't do it, but I am just stating what has happened so far. It also allows us to play Romagnoli alongside Musa and Leo, and a backline with those 3 together is quite possibly the best in Italy. It also fixes a problem that's been discussd already (mainly by Dev) that both Bonucci and Musacchio (and you can add Roma to that) lack the ability and speed to recover if a long ball behind them is played. Having the 3 of them on the field with Bonucci "sweeping" fixes every single issue.

4. Lastly, it allows us to mess around with the front 3 without largely affecting anyone else. We can play with 2 attacking mids, we can play with 1 and 2 CFs. This will not change the shape of the midfield or defence, but it obviously changes our references up front and gives us more options.
Well ,insted of adjusting formation to players he had ,our "coach" is trying to adjust players to his favourite (or only one he knows) formation. At the end we will have a bunch of modified players which will ,due to circumstances ,give 60-70% their true abilities and stagnate if not go backwards with their progress. Long time ago I said - sack the simpleton he'll ruin everything. He's on his way to do just that.

I choose 3421 with Calhanoglu and Suso behind Kalinic. I am not sure with 3412 since the 1 position needs very good player who link the miedifeld and attack and I doubt  Suso could play there but Calhanoglu might be able to play there. 

If we stay with players like now, I agree with your formation since we lack of quality players in midfield. The problem is only now Romagnoli has not found his best form. Zapata could be tried since he has been ok this season.

Gabriel Paletta’s agent has arrived at Casa Milan, to negotiate the centre-back’s move to Lazio.
It’s unlikely the Diavolo will play hardball over the defender, as he’s not part of Coach Vincenzo Montella’s plans, so a deal could be concluded relatively quickly.
