Summer mercato 2012
Indeed Mbiwa can come in January, if Montpellier does not want to lose him for nothing, and it seems that we may even have a pre-contract already in place. Of course, there are many question marks still:

1) Do we really a pre-contract with him? If so, I reckon that we have better chance of getting him in January.
2) Is a pre-contract illegal?
3) Will he extend his contract? That can happen anytime between now and January.
4) Will he get sold to somewhere else? I am sure if Barcelona came along, he would just ditch us.

but perhaps the most important question (for us, not for the management who just cares about the cost) is:

5) Is he good? I watched only 1 game, and you know me, I am not good enough to know if he is good enough after just one game (actually, no matter how many matches I watch, I am just not good enough to tell. Icon_lol2 that job is for people like Brasileiro. Heart).

He won't extend his contract and there is a 99 percent chance he won't go anywhere else because he clearly said in an interview if i dont go to milan this summer then next summer i will for sure when i am out of contract.

But, that comes with us having to satisfy his wage demands im guessing, many clubs are after him lately
pre -contract is legal when a player has 6 months or less remaining on his current contract.


About mercato, lets put it this way...if Ibra & Silva sale did not happen, but everything else remained the same, I'd call it a GREAT mercato with about 10 million spent.

But since the sale did happen, the mercato is AFWUL. Going from a CL Contender to Serie A pretender cant be good, no matter how Revolver tries to put it Tongue

"Since he is not the goal scoring type of player", that's one of the strangest things I've heard. The guy has played as an attacking midfielder and has a better scoring/assist rate than most strikers. For Milan he played 270 matches, scored 95 goals and had 46 assist. For Real Madrid, where everybody seems to believe he's been crap, he has played 92 matches, scored 24 goals and 28 assists. How many of our players can contribute with anything close to this?

As things developed before deadline day Kaká would have been the difference between a good and a bad mercato as he is just the kind of player we're missing, sadly he didn't arrive...

Thats pretty much exactly why Kaka will have second though coming to Milan, as I stated and u reconfirmed, anything but winning the league will seems to be a failure for Kaka if he comes to Milan. I am not saying Kaka is not a great player, I love the guy...but to expect him to lift the current Milan to the title is abit much. If Milan still got Silva at the back and Ibra in front would have been another story.

I think the option of coming to Milan, a known place for him, and be able to fight his way back into the brazilian national team would be a lot better than staying at Real Madrid, be a sub and miss the World Cup in Brazil in a couple of years time. Did he really decide against this himself or was it Real Madrid who played hard and missed the chance of saving some money? I find it hard to believe that Kaká is happy to stay put.

That's what I believe too, so if we do have a pre-contract with Mbiwa right now, it will be illegal then. Icon_lol2

On the mercato, I agree. Had we kept Silva and Ibra (or even just Silva), I would call it a big success. The players we bought are young and some of them are useful, and we said goodbye to some huge contracts and start a financially sustainable way.

Well, let's not write ourselves off yet. In 10 minutes, we will have our second game this season, and I can't wait. Smile

HOw did Inter managed to get Gargano on a loan deal? To me thats even better than Milan signing De jong for 5mil.
Gargano is not better then de jong

did man city seriously pay 18mln pounds for javi garcia?
The deal is better not the player. I actually rate them to be about the same level.
