At the same time....

MARCA - Luka Modric has informed media outlets that he will stay at Real Madrid this season and is happy at the club. Accordingly, the Croatian dispels recent rumors that he could have been included in a deal with PSG to secure Neymar's signing.

So who is correct???


Anyway, the domino effect already started with Lo Celso imo.

Lo Celso - Tottenham.
Eriksen - R. Madrid
James - Atletico
Correa - Milan
Modric isn't coming

Add the factor of him getting into an actual fight with Biglia, and I simply can’t see why he would be worth more than the reported figure. Sure, we can all hope that Giampaolo will work wonders with him this year, but since the club was so eager to let him go, it should tell you something about Giampaolo’s opinion on this matter.

Kessie has shown that he is mostly a big dumb brute, and despite having been shown the utmost trust of Montella and Gattuso he has failed to hone any facets of his game since his arrival. His first touch is non-existent, his technique is subpar and he can’t shoot to save his life - he is a lousy box-to-box player. He does offer some physicality but all comparisons with Gattuso in his playing days are wildly farfetched and mostly just shows how distant those memories are to Milan fans today. I think it would have been good for him to leave for EPL where a player of his limitations is more appreciated.

It seems clear that we need to offload a player of some value to sign the players on Giampaolo’s wishlist, and with that in mind Kessie would have been a good pick. Now we have to hope that someone is willing to pay for Calhanoglu, Laxalt and Silva, otherwise I’m afraid that Suso will be the one sold at the end of the window. That would be a shame, since Giampaolo clearly rates Suso. I’d much rather keep a player that Giampaolo sees some perspective in, than one that he doesn’t.

Really good post. Different what I have from opinions on Kessie and you made good points. What I am not sure is if MG has watched Kessie enough from training ground? Afaik he came late due to African Cup?

Not really. Leonardo leaving says nothing to me. He's never been Loyal to Milan.

Maldini staying and Boban coming over says plenty though.

I’m the biggest Leonardo fan there is but your post is illogical.



Kessie will be worth 50m after one season the CL. Even if he doesn’t improve much.

"... now Boban has firmly shut the door on any potential arrival for the 33-year-old.
“Twenty days ago, Paolo Maldini declared that Luka Modric will not be a Milan player,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“But since we continue to talk about it and write about it without any basis, I would like to repeat that the best player in the world of last year will not be our player.
“As far as I can see, he will still be in Madrid. Obviously, it would be great to have him, but this is the only truth.”
Boban added: “Luka is a person and a player of the highest level.
“We thank him for his good wishes for next season and we are pleased that he has liked our club since he was a child, but it is right to clarify things – out of respect for our fans, too.”

I don't know why the obsession that he is coming. What does the club need to say for people to get the picture
As for the medical that's booked for a midfielder... can't wait to see who that it

If I have to guess, Rakitic. Croatian connection with Boban, Barca has too many midfielders and all.
Verratti Big Grin
Where did news of a Medical being booked surface?
I've heard that today but is there any credible source?

pure nonsense
