Suazo would represent that element of pace that we sorely need in the attack..we wont get him though...we already have "4 Champions" according to management...what a joke..

Sorry that I havent been so positive in my last posts, but this is how I feel, and certainly hope it will pass....

Suazo would be perfer replacement for Recoba the glass man, plus he's fast and he could play as a pure striker also, he good on the ball and team guy, I'd like to add him, he could also play as an OM

dont worry warro, thats how i feel.. think alot of real Milan fans feel that way

the word 'real' will really upset quite a number of people...

Warro: I am sure that Suazo will solve the pace issue, but will it be the eternal solution? I'm sorry but I cannot really come up with a striker's name who can solve the problem. Henry, Shevchenko, and E'to are the best in the world, at least for now. Other than that, I am really losing my imagination here.

I think the problem can be potentially solved with a faster midfield however, and I can only point to Seedorf for his failure to bring the team up to live and going. He has been really slow, and the problem magnifies after Shevchenko leaves. I think it's time for Carlo to seriously consider if Seedorf is needed anymore. He'll be a great player to use when Milan is winning 1-0 or 2-0 as he holds the ball well, but other than that I don't see any value in him.

The problem is, of course, there is not any midfield who can take his place, now, as he is the 'pet' of Ancelotti.

Milan: Daniel Alves nuova pista

09:23 del 11 dicembre

Il dg del Milan, Ariedo Braida ha recentemente incontrato gli agenti di Daniel Alves, 23enne laterale destro brasiliano del Siviglia. In Spagna i rossoneri seguono anche il difensore del Getafe, Alexis. In attacco Suazo, Di Natale o Tavano per gennaio.
(Tuttosport)

So we are after Suazo too :) niceeeeee me like

Pireloke
11-12-2006, 16:21
I think the defensive compartiment is priority number one, as is a goalkeeper if Dida fails to sign his new contract soon. Alves would be an excellent choice, too good to be true imho. Alexis? I don't know if he would fit here.

Suazo? He's fast, he's fast and he's fast, but is he Milan material? Hell no, Obi Martins was better and Inter let him go, why would they want Suazo for any other reason than to steal yet again a player in front of Milan's nose just to put him on the bench? I don't care about Ibrahomobitch, and I don't care about Suazo, the only thing I blame the management for is Crespo, even Ancelotti wanted him back but Galliani failed to deliver there.

Then Tavano? Nope, Sevilia was so dumb they lined him up in the CL, so he's no good here. Di Natale? maybe.

Alves would be great but is almost impossible to buy given Sevilla's current form, position, ambition, team, etc. He is much more valuable and deservedly so than Suazo.

Lippi, Maldini headline AC Milan overhaul
tribalfooball.com - December 12, 2006

Marcello Lippi is on the verge of an agreement at AC Milan.
The Italian World Cup winner is set to replace Carlo Ancelotti, who is being lined up by Valencia, says La Repubblica.

Lippi has already submitted his shopping list to Milan president Silvio Berlusconi, which will include Marco Amelia (Livorno), Massimo Oddo (Lazio),Gianluca Zambrotta, Andres Iniesta or Xavi (all Barcelona) and one between David Trezeguet (Juventus) and Fernando Torres (Atletico Madrid).

Also under consideration is a high-powered off-field role for club captain Paolo Maldini. The veteran defender is set to be offered the club's vice-presidency at the end of the season.

AC Milan discuss swap for Fiorentina ace Toni
tribalfooball.com - December 12, 2006

AC Milan have begun talks with Fiorentina over an end-of-season swap deal involving Luca Toni and Alberto Gilardino.

The two clubs have been discussing several of eachother's players and Milan are pushing to have a deal setup which would see Gilardino reunited with his old Parma coach Cesare Prandelli in Florence in exchange for Toni. While insisting he's happy at Fiorentina, Toni has reportedly told close friends his dream is play for one of the big Milan clubs before calling time on his career.

Milan have also asked about a January deal for Fiorentina defender Tomas Ujfalusi and are prepared to offer Daniele Bonera, Marek Jankolovsky plus cash for the Czech Republic international.

AC Milan have held talks with representatives of Sevilla fullback Daniel Alves.
The Brazilan has attracted interest from Chelsea, Liverpool and Barcelona in recent months, but insists he's happy playing for Primera Liga surprise packet Sevilla.

Tuttosport says Milan chief Ariedo Braida has met with Alves' agents to discuss his situation and their interest in bringing him to Italy next season.

Per gennaio, oltre a Oddo, il Milan pensa ad uno tra Di Natale, Iaquinta e David Villa. Per giugno è già stato bloccato Keita del Lille.

This is what La Repubblica article says :
For January, besides Oddo, Milan is thinking about one of Di Natale, Iaquinta and David Villa.

I'm not sure how to translate the last sentence, but can't it mean that Keita's eventual transfer from Lille is blocked until June, when he'll be able to leave the club.
Meaning, Milan will go for Keita in June not in January. It doesn't says Milan allready signed him and is just waiting for June to get him. It means Milan won't go after Keita until June because Lille blocked his eventual transfer, and then, in June, Milan will try to get him.

( My italian isn't perfect yet, so it's very possibile i got this wrong. Sorry, if that's the case)

THey say that tehy are thinking about Toni for Oliviera or Inzaghi! They said Gila is non-removable! They also say nothing about Bonera and Janku, I find that a load of rubbish! Bonera is meant to be one of the nrightest defenders, wht would milan sell him! And I know for a fact Bonera wouldn't leave the club if he was given an option!!

Oddo: 'Se dipendesse da me, direi Lazio al 100%'

14:45 del 12 dicembre

Massimo Oddo, difensore della Lazio, è sempre in bilico tra Lazio e Milan. "Mi piacerebbe rimanere a Roma - ha detto Oddo a Sky -, ma ho 30 anni e il prossimo sarà anche il mio ultimo contratto. Sono disposto a venire incontro alla società, ma anche la società deve venire incontro a me. Milan o Lazio? Se dipendesse da me direi 100% Lazio".
Sulle polemiche post-derby, il capitano laziale ha detto: "Se è successo qualcosa nello spogliatoio non posso saperlo, comunque ci sta anche che mentre il mister Rossi stava parlando con una persona, qualche giocatore della Roma abbia ascoltato il dicorso. Il bagno di Rossi? Aveva fatto una promessa e da uomo la doveva matenere, io non l'avrei mai fatta".

Yeah, OK...lets see how bad is my italian...
I will not translate every word, but the main sense is this:
There are talks about Oddo from Lazio to Milan. Oddo says that he would prefer to stay in Rome..but he is 30 years lod, so his next contract is going to be the last (as he ll retire afterwards). I m ready to respect club's interewsts, but the club needs to respect mine. Milan or Lazio? Oddo says: if it would depend on me, I d say 100 % Lazio.
In post derby discussion Oddo said that he doesnt know if something happend in the changing rooms..anyways mister Rossi spoke to someone, and some players of Roma heard this conversation.

I did not understand what the conversation was about, maybe Rossi said something offence towards Roma...
the last phrase means: "The man should keep his promises, I d never do like that".....

We seem to be having a bad one so far, and if he can't take it and stick around to help this team when it's the hardest, then bye bye to him!

Lazio President Claudio Lotito has denied he is in crisis talks with captain Massimo Oddo.

The Italy international has been repeatedly linked with a January transfer to Milan, with rumours surfacing that Oddo has met with club officials to discuss his future. "There has been no meeting with Oddo, who will remain a Lazio player until 2008," said Lotito, who recently had his Calciopoli ban wiped out on appeal. "I must repeat that there has never been any 'for sale' sign around his neck, this story has been blown out of proportion by the media. The club will do all it can to keep Oddo here and for the time being there have been no offers." The reported discussions between the player and the club were claimed to focus on the fact that Oddo currently earns significantly more than the new £357,000 wage cap introduced by Lotito, a major sticking point consider the defender has just one more year remaining on his current contract.

Oddo himself has also spoken out over the issue, claiming that the club seem reluctant to agree over his future. "I would like to stay, but I am 30 and the next one will probably be my last contract, an important one," he explained. "I am willing to discuss things with the club, but they must also take a step towards me. If it only depended on me, I would remain with Lazio, 100 per cent." The situation seems worryingly similar to last season, when fans' favourite Paolo Di Canio claimed he was forced out of the club by President Lotito after not being offered a new deal.

is this the time to try and get him while there stalling over the contract. also its nothing to do with this but with Henry refusing to play and a so called argument about him playing at the training ground should Milan try to look to sign him with him been unsettled and all imo Henry is what Milan need hes quick strong very talented and has a great goal scoring record he could be our replacement for sheva.

Posted this in the Kaka to Real thread, thought it was better placed here: (with a few ammendments)

This is my take on all speculation, and actual transfers, from here on out, especially when I look at how things have gone in the distant, and importantly, recent past:

I dont care what players are at Milan anymore. Big and Serious. It doesnt matter really...I know who I would prefer, I know who I would love to play for us, I know who I dont want, but ultimately, I have no control over these aquisitions and sales.

I cant continue to raise my blood pressure over issues that I have no control over...Kaka leaving, or staying..Ronaldinho, coming or not...defense being "refurbished" or not...Calro being sacked or not...

Folks, I made a decision, not taken lightly, to support the institution that is AC Milan, not Weah, not Boban, not Van Basten, Rijkaard or Gullit, not $heva, not Gattuso, not Rui Costa...the club. The crest. The Red and Black candy stripe.

Lippi? Ancelotti? Maldini? Yogi the Bear? Doesnt matter...someone will coach, I have seen good, bad, and downright ugly, but it never altered my allegiance to Milan, nor will it even if they rehire Zaccerphony (how Calro could allow that clown to take points from the San Siro is beyond me).

If Berlu sells the club to Idi Amin...it wouldnt matter. I am not changing allegiance...if we get relegated this season, so be it..I will still wear my Milan shirt when searching for streams for Serie B matches.

I wont get caught up in any senseless, mind numbing, fear inducing rumors, that may, or importantly, may not come to fruition.

If Kaka stays, fine, if he leaves, fine..Milan wont cease to exist. Footballers have to look for what they consider to be their best interests...if it means leaving one club for another...its just the same for any person leaving one job for the next...its a job after all...and people change employers all the time.

I did not post the above for any veiled criticisim of other posters here, I am simply stating my recently adopted viewpoint on transfer speculation.

I cannot protest in front of Berlu´s offices for a better transfer policy...I cannot change anything about Milan, except whether or not I chose to support the club.

I chose to support AC Milan, regardless.

Yes right!If we goes then good luck to him!
We can buy another great player as MC, and change our tactic to 4-4-2 wich is beter than 4-3-1-2 and more usefull
and play like this.........


--------------------------Gk--------------------------
--RB--------------DC------------DC------------LB---


--MR-------------Pirlo-------Gattuso-----------ML--

---------------------ST-------ST---------------------

Gattuso will now play at his natural position which is DMC and MC and not as a RM wich is not!And also he will help very much pirlo and give him more freedom,and gattuso's football playing will be better!And also we finaly will have wingers, ML an MR and we gonna play better football and for sure with 2 great wingers like Ribery/Keita at MR and one of Robben/Joe Cole/Gourcouff at ML we gonna be a great club again!

This is from yesterday, he sure is spectacular !

He scored a goal at the beggining of the match, but was disallowed for offside, but then, in 23rd minute, he scored again and this time it counted.
He's only 17 years and 3 months old !
Looks like the next big thing from Brazil.

This is not a transfer rumour, but something that says Milan will not make a transfer :)

From the official site :
A.C. Milan refute in anyway having had or intending to open any type of collaboration, at any level, with Mr. Luciano Moggi.



Good decission, imo. Moggi was more and more connected to Milan as some kind of an advicer and as someone who'll work from behind.
Milan did great for officially denying such possibility !

Milan should sign Cassano!! from real madrid

and here's an article which confirms your wish :)

Cassano's San Siro comeback
Friday 15 December, 2006
The Spanish Press claims that Antonio Cassano is ready for a January move to Milan following Gonzalo Higuain’s arrival.

Cassano’s time at Real Madrid could be over after less than a year, as he has never really settled in following his January 2006 transfer from Roma.

The Italian international has also engaged in a row with Coach Fabio Capello, his former mentor at the Stadio Olimpico, and hasn’t been greeted warmly by the fans.

This week Argentine Higuain was signed from River Plate and his introduction makes it even less likely Cassano will find room at the Bernabeu.

The links with Milan go back some way, but would be further intensified by their difficulties in finding the net after Andriy Shevchenko’s £31m switch to Chelsea.

Today Spanish newspaper ‘Marca’ suggests that a January move back to Italy is on the cards for the ex-Bari youngster, especially as it would give him the opportunity for a return to the national side.

With this in mind, Cassano’s final games in a Real jersey could be against Espanyol and Recreativo Huelva.

http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/dec15s.html

Can anyone answer me, is Assano cup tied? :D

Tony29.
15-12-2006, 15:31
Yes, Cassano is cup-tied.
He played on 3 matches so far in CL this season, with total of 150 minutes !

Cassano is cup tied as he took part in the Lyon-Real M game. Still, if the deal is good, Milan management may very well make an exception for him.

joumasepoes
16-12-2006, 01:31
Heres my take on cup tied players: I think it wouldnt hurt at all getting cup tied players when Milan will only play a maximum of 7 CL games out of a total of 25 games. IMO the Serie A should be a higher priority now that Milan reached the knockouts, coz if milan doesnt reach CL nxt yr they may well lose our best players. Lets Get Oddo who isnt cup tied, Amelia, Alves, and David Villa. The disadv. of course is that Kalac would have to play in the UCL unless Nelson has recovered by then. And also Lucas for the midfield, he has an italian passport plus he aint cup tied!

Tavano is with Roma now on loan. And Milan is still waiting and hoping that they can get some good christmas bargain. To me Madrid and Inter and even Roma are more desperate than Milan and seems like they are in the relegation zone and not milan!
The management still think we are the number 1 club in europe (well in fact we are!), but after this season, we may drop down to 20.

I can't relax. Seeing other clubs snapping up all the talent. What else is left in the pool? Some old fishes again?
I remember our management said it is very hard to get a replacement for Pirlo, the only one that could replace him was Redondo. And now we found Gago who is very similar to Redondo and Milan just sit and wait and look at Real going to snap him up as well. What are we doing? Someone should get rid of Braida, he is useless.

nefremo
16-12-2006, 23:39
For those doubting Oddo, he is 30, and can EASILY give this club 3-4 GREAT years. Cafu has been one of the reasons for our succsess in recent years and look how old he is. What do you guys want, a player that can play for 10 more years for every position. Get real. Some players that come will be younger some will be older. Oddo is the BEST possible option right now, and paying around 5 mil for a player that will give us 3-4 great years is a great bargain if you ask me.

As for Gago, I agree that he has talent, but to have gotten in for him at any price like Real did would have been stupid. Hugain in my eyes from the games that I have seen is nothing special. A good striker that has a lot of ambition, but is he going to be a star or even close to it??? let time show us that, as again we can't go in for every OVERHYPED youngster in South America.

Forget it people. Oddo will not leave Lazio. Even if he does, it won't be to Milan. Milan will just let him go because he is too "expensive". Just like how they let Zambrotta go.

IMO: Milan should just get Adriano from Inter. He's a reject and he is a real talent. Milan can do what they did 3 years ago with Pirlo and Seedorf.

Karim

You do have a point, but i don't think he's so untouchable/unavailable. Right after Real signed Higuain, Secco and other Juve officials went to Madrid to talk about Robinho and they all came back with a smile :) ( that was enough for Corrierre to conclude how the deal is made allready ....but no deal is made , i'm sure about it).
According to this guy Secco , Juve has the advantage over Robinho because it was some kind of deal Juve and Real made when Capello, Emerson and Cannavaro went to Real Madrid.
But even if Juve is in pole position, they don't have the money to spend on Robinho, imo, which leaves Milan with a good chance for the Brazilian.
Like you said, Real will try to include Kaka in the deal, which will be a problem, but if Real is really ready to sell Robinho, then some good cash offer may be enough for Milan to get him !

Red&Black
17-12-2006, 13:28
How can anyone relax now. Our management is not doing their job right. Even Gattuso is frustrated. Everybody can see that it is not the players' fault nor even the coach. It is the management's fault. They sent out Braida to South America to scout players, the top of the list is Gago and Higuain. When they realised Real is chasing them with big money they just withdraw the plan totally. What a waste of airfare and time!
I know the amount that Real is willing to spend on these two kids are crazy. But if they pay Gago for 12-15 mil, what do you think other club will ask for their big stars? We got to face it, the whole market has been jacked up by Real and Chelsea, Any good players that are targeted by these two clubs will cost enourmous of money. And if we can't pay as much, we will just have to settle for the second best players (like what Milan is doing now). So this is why I always ask is Milan competitive enough with clubs like Chelsea, Real or even Man Utd financial wise? If not, we just have to look else where (free players, or some unknown with potential but big risk players, and this is what Milan has been doing for the last 2-3 years). If this is the case, then yes Milan can afford to wait and let other clubs to snap up all these good young with potential but less risky players.

I understand you anger towards both of them..but believe me Abramovic is not a boss of any mafia...He managed to steal a lot of money from Russia at the time, when the country was on "its knees"...He is a smart guy, who knew where and what to take, and did it at the right time. No mafia is involved there.
As for real Madrid - they are stupid wasters of money...so as Chelsea. They dont use their money in a smart way...And actually they do not benefit much from this stupid spending as you can see.

Red&Black
17-12-2006, 14:06
Well, this is not about whether the clubs spending smartly or not. We all know they are not spending wisely, but the thing is they are dominating the transfer market, they have set the rule of the game now, and are we able to play this game with them. That is the point here. They can keep spending unwisely, but they are also getting all the good players that other clubs wanted. So what else is left? Even if we can spend our money wisely, what can we buy? We want Gago, can't buy gago (too expensive), we want Ronaldo, couldn't buy him (too expensive), we want to keep Sheva, counldn't keep him (Chelsea paying him too much), we want to keep kaka, may or may not be able to keep him (Real is willing to pay alot). So what can Milan do? Spend our money wisely? Find more Gourcuff? or Bonera? Exactly what Arsenal is doing! Look what happen?
I admit that Milan has been spending very wisely for the past 2-3 years, and won the CL and Seria A for us, but the trend is not like that anymore, with Real and Chelsea and even Inter willing to spend like crazy, we can only get players from the reject shop!

So if we want to get good players and avoid having a $$ bidding war with other clubs, we have to act quickly, be more proactive even before the transfer period. But our management is still waiting, counting their fingers at home. So how can we not worry. Even our players is getting worried!!

In all honesty these were the thoughts many had about Milan in the late 80's and early 90's when we bought players for fun just so that our opponents couldn't have them...

So I guess this makes us mad because they are now actually tempting our players.

I don't think we did that, at that time we could only buy 3-4(can't remember) foreign players.
Nope, 3 foreign players could have played on 1 match, but Milan was buying many more foreigners.
I remember Boban being loaned to Bari because Milan allready had 7 foreigners.
Berlu was breaking all the records and all the others were objecting ( they were jelaous at Milan actually, just like many are jelaous because Chelsea and Real are getting the best atm) because they didn't stand a chance against Berlusconi's money.

Actually, believe it or not, it was Milan who started the wave of huge spending on football players in Europe.

Berlusconi was ( just like Abramovich now) giving unbelievable money just to get a player Inter or Juve were interested in.

The best example is Gianluigi Lentini (ever heard of him ?)
Juventus made an offer for this Torino winger in 1992. But Berlusconi reacted in the strangest possibile way. He offered £13 million !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you know how much £13 million were in 1992? (something like 80 M Euro today) He became the most expensive player of all time, and he wasn't even concidered as the most promising talent in the world. He wasn't even the most promising talent in Italy because Baggio held that title. The world was stunned. Even Vatican called it "an offence against the dignity of work".
Lentini became a Milan player, of course, but he was warming the bench all the time. Played in only 60 matches in 4 seasons, and most of the time as a substitute. ( after 4 years Milan loaned him to Atalanta and after 5 years Milan sold him back to Torino for £2 million , losing 11 M on him.... reminds you of someone's transfer policy ??? )
Noone should have been angry at Berlu or Milan. They had the money, they bought the best, the won 3 CL titles in 6 years.
And noone should be angry at Chelsea or Real now. They have the money and they will buy the best. And Kaka is the best ;)

Of course Real won't be able to buy Kaka if Milan is able to match their offer, or won't accept some multi million offer. The question is will Milan do that ?

Money talks in football, we all know that. We know that even Zidane, Sheva,Figo, Baggio etc were leaving their clubs when better offers were comming.
My experience says that if Real offers top money they'll get Kaka. Logic says so. Look at Chelsea getting the stars of big clubs (Ballack, Sheva, Essien). They offer something that can't be rejected and they get what they want.

Of course, there are some exceptions. Some guys like Buffon or Maldini can't be bought by money. You better pray Kaka is one of them.
Because if he isn't, then richie rich will get him sooner or later !

PS I dont think that Sheva left for money..I think his wife did not want to stay in Milan.

Guys, since Galliani and co will not do anything to help Milan, I decided to act my self! (kinda funny really :P)

Here is my ultimate plan. Inter will be goin to Bahrain to play against them on January 6th. I have already made a few phone calls with friends and fixed my connections there with the person responsible of making sure the Inter team are safe :D. Im going to meet up with Adriano. If we were alone, I will try to be as humble and realistic as I can (which is never the case) and tell him that he is a great player and can write history in football, but Inter is the wrong place to do it. I'll tell him "even your Argentian team mates don't like you, how could you stay any longer? The best thing for you is to go to a team where you will feel happy, seeing as you love ur life in Milan, then you dont even have to leave Milan. The best thing to do is to try to join AC Milan, who are more Brazilian than Inter and you will be able to be much more happier. I am a big fan of you and I really want to see you performing again, please do it for the sake of your fans."


Anyone think I should take the chance? should I fly to Bahrain and try to do it? I hope it'll work! :P.. I know even if he wanted to join Milan he couldn't do it himself but at least if i put the idea into his head then it would be all up to him from that point.. he should talk to the right ppl in milan to let milan know of their interest in him..

lol, look to what our management has done to us..from how hopeless i am in our management doing any good moves in the market, im trying to do something my self!

Here is my ultimate plan. Inter will be goin to Bahrain to play against them on January 6th. I have already made a few phone calls with friends and fixed my connections there with the person responsible of making sure the Inter team are safe :D. Im going to meet up with Adriano. If we were alone, I will try to be as humble and realistic as I can (which is never the case) and tell him that he is a great player and can write history in football, but Inter is the wrong place to do it. I'll tell him "even your Argentian team mates don't like you, how could you stay any longer? The best thing for you is to go to a team where you will feel happy, seeing as you love ur life in Milan, then you dont even have to leave Milan. The best thing to do is to try to join AC Milan, who are more Brazilian than Inter and you will be able to be much more happier. I am a big fan of you and I really want to see you performing again, please do it for the sake of your fans."


Anyone think I should take the chance? should I fly to Bahrain and try to do it? I hope it'll work! :P.. I know even if he wanted to join Milan he couldn't do it himself but at least if i put the idea into his head then it would be all up to him from that point.. he should talk to the right ppl in milan to let milan know of their interest in him..

lol, look to what our management has done to us..from how hopeless i am in our management doing any good moves in the market, im trying to do something my self!

To hell with that. Take them all down. :grinser: :devf: :uhm:

Prepare yourself people!!!!!!!! This is something you havent heard for years........

Presentiing Mr. Adriano Galliani:

AC Milan will splash out on Oddo - Galliani
tribalfooball.com - December 18, 2006

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has declared they intend to splash out for Lazio fullback Massimo Oddo in January.
Oddo is in new contract talks with Lazio, but the two parties are still some way from an agreement and Galliani said this morning: "In January we will sign Oddo and beyond him another defender.

"Indeed, if the market allows us, we won't stop there."

Galliani was asked about Milan's interest in Internacional's 17 year-old striker Alexandre Pato: "Milan has a Brazilian spirit and we intend for that to continue."

AC Milan to offer £7M for Udinese's Di Natale
tribalfooball.com - December 18, 2006

AC Milan are ready to bid for Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale.
Di Natale has established himself in recent months as a major part of Italy coach Roberto Donadoni's Euro2008 plans and has emerged as a January target for Milan.

Milan chief Adriano Galliani confirmed today they will be active in next month's winter market and is ready to offer Udinese £7 million for Di Natale.



Not bad new two lots in one day its the Christmas cheer getting to them!

Here's a more detailed part of the thing Galliani said today:

Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has revealed his plans for the January transfer window, with Lazio's Massimo Oddo top of his wanted list.

"In January we will sign Oddo and another defender," he said. "If the market allows it we will not stop there.

"However, we will not sign a goalkeeper."

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti had been linked with a move for a shot-stopper as regular number one Dida is injured.

There are two other targets on the Rossoneri's wish-list, Sao Paulo right back Ilsinho - reportedly in line to replace long-serving veteran Cafu - and World Club champions Internacional's teenage striker Pato Alexandre.

"Ilsinho and Pato? We have a Brazilian spirit here and we will confirm [something more soon]."

Galliani again insisted that the club's star Brazil playmaker would not be leaving the club, nor would the man in charge.

"Kaka will not leave and we have spoken enough about [Chelsea striker Andriy] Shevchenko," he said.

"Ancelotti will remain with us, for better or worse."

kef
18-12-2006, 08:01
It would be great if we could sign those three players that are mentioned in the interview with Galliani, because Cafu is really getting to old and with Pato we would have a more creative attacker and that's also something we can use

Adriano has the same problem as Gila - mental. He very much depends on his emotions...So he can be great, and then all of a sudden he is out for a long period. I think we dont need another mental player.

Adriano and Gilardino both have the same problem: bad coach than canr develop them. If they worked with Lippi, hiddink or Wenger, you would see the difference. When fear and nervous state trake on the player, he becomes insecure just like Gila is right now. He doesnt even try his head kicks, and the things he knew how to do at Parma. Gila nedes confidence and maybe a little more pure power, nothing else. He knows how to score.

Ancelotti gives his players enough confidence, Gila wasn't the Gila of Parma also with Italy in the WC under Lippi.
Gila will get confidence by scoring goals and good performances of the whole team in general, like every attacker

I can't find one video when he scored against Milan. Amazing goal. Milan destroyed Udinese at the end ( i think Jankulovski scored an own goal on that match), but Di Natale's goal was something to remember.

Lazio chief Claudio Lotito has told Milan they can buy Massimo Oddo – so long as they meet his astonishing £14m asking price!

The Biancocelesti captain has been paired with a move to Milan for the last two years, but no transfer fee has ever been agreed for the attacking full-back.

The Via Turati outfit are still keen on signing the world champion, given their defensive injury problems this term, and reports suggest there has been contact.

However, Lotito has now almost doubled his £8m summer valuation of the stopper, whereas Milan are only prepared to offer £4m and the co-ownership of Pasquale Foggia, who joined Lazio on loan in August.

Oddo’s contract with the Roman club expires in 2008 and renewal talks are proving to be difficult, despite the 30-year-old’s reiterated desire that he wants to remain with the Biancocelesti.

Should Milan again fail in their latest Oddo bid, the Rossoneri might make a move for Ilsinho of Sao Paulo.


http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/dec19h.html

Is he nuts or what? NO WAY we should buy a 30 years old Oddo for that price, no matter how good he is.

mrki
19-12-2006, 08:25
Just buy Ilsinho, and get him some fake passport as the clubs always do and thats it!
Then send Lotito some flowers and make him return Foggia from load deal... There will be times when Lazio will need something form Milan, and im sure Milan will not make those mistakes form this summer...

19-12-2006, 08:37
we go low, they go high, most likely than not the price will come down for oddo, but I agree that we shouldn't spend too much money on a 30yr old player...

Arildonardo

mrki
19-12-2006, 09:31
Its been raining all day in here so im just listening to Lennon and reading some news about mercato...

So I've come up with this, with "only" 3 players we can have a super temas as early as january...

....................Dida...............
ODDO...Nesta.....BARZAGLI...Kaladze
.................GAGO.............
..Gattuso..............Pirlo.......
........Kaka'...........Gourcuff.............
................Gilardino........

Look at this, this is a mean machine! It has technique, speed, power in Gago, Gattuso, Kaladze,Nesta , Barzagli and creation form players like Pirlo, Kaka', Gourcuff, Oddo....And Gila is in his right place as solo striker....

1. Oddo - we are now "officialy" after him. Im sure if we pay some right money and give them Bonera or Simic we can sign him. !4 mil is too much fo course, but that will go down...We need that kind of a player, hecan still produce 2 years of top football for us. Especioally playing with Gattuso on right side.
2. Barzagli ( or someone, Alexis? ) - Palermo boss said that if some really good offer comes they can sell him. Palermo is out of the UEFA CUP, od out of scudetto race, and maybe they could sell him. He is not cup tied for CL.
3. Gago - talks with Real are falling down and reports on calciomercato say Boca ir ready to offer him to Milan or Barca. This man ( as I've heard ) has an Italian passport and id a super player! Why we dont go for him???

Now when I've said this I need to say we are linked with Zebina and Iaquinta :( How pathetic. Im sure we have the money for these transfers...

Stitch
19-12-2006, 09:37
not sure, but i think that the player, once he plays in either CL or UEFA Cup, is cup tied for both competitions. And about Gago, it says on goal.com that Boca gave RM a 48 hours deadline to increase their 18M€ offer to 21M, before they offer him to other clubs. I sure hope that we could get him :cheers:

Mystik
19-12-2006, 09:47
I'm not sure of the exact quote..but once the person hasn't played CL so far..no matter if it's Uefa Cup or whatever..he can still play CL if he switches clubs.

zlatanov
19-12-2006, 09:53
A player who has played CL for another team is cup-tied and canNOT play for another team in the same competition.
As of February, each team in CL can update their player list with 3 new players - of course, total number of players is still no more than 25 - and 1 of these 3 players can be a player, who has played in the UEFA Cup for another team i.e. players like Barzagli, Alves, and Amelia are indeed eligible to play for Milan in CL but only 1 (ONE) of them, not more than that.

mrki
19-12-2006, 10:26

Tony29.
19-12-2006, 10:47

You don't have to sell to register 3 new players. You only need to take out 3 players from the list and add 3 new players to replace them.

zlatanov
19-12-2006, 11:32
in our case we need to take 2 players off that list because Milan started the season with 24 players registered when max allowed is 25.

But yeah, as Tony said, we don't have to sell, all we need to do is "unregister" 2 players currently on that list and add 3 more ... these 2 players could well be Sergio, whose season seems to be over before it even began, and maybe Favalli or Billy, who we would still be able to use in Serie A but not in CL for the rest of the season ... and that's assuming that Serie A regulations don't limit squads to 25 players.

I would really love to take this kid no matter what price he has, I've seen him play a few times and he impressed me alot. He plays so much like Pirlo.

We can sign him for a few reasons. My favourite is to piss real off. Second, we can use him as leverage to get Robinho/Ronaldo (maybe both?). Third he can be extremely useful to us anyway, he will walk straight into the starting 11, but does he have the EU passport? Fourth to show our ambition in the market, maybe attract other younger Argentinians with that move. Him coming here would also allows us to rest our over-used midfielders.

All in all, we should not miss this chance!

Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino has poured cold water on suggestions that the club will exchange star striker Luca Toni for Alberto Gilardino.

"We are very satisfied with the performances of Luca," he said.

"He has a contract until 2009 and I think that he will honour it in full."

Corvino conceded that Milan forward Gilardino, partner of Toni for the Italian national team, is as desirable as the Viola striker.

"Gilardino is a great player, an exceptional centre forward.

"But whoever holds the signatures of these hit-men will hold onto them tightly."


I dont know would Toni be any good he hasnt found the form that he had last season is he a good striker or was it a quick flash then thats it?

yeah, I believe that's exactly what the rules state - a player cannot play for two clubs in one and the same UEFA competition, however, he can play for another club from a diff UEFA club competition. That's why any player who's played in the UEFA Cup is eligible to play in the CL too but we can buy only one such player.
Here's the link to the CL regulations on the uefa site. Take a look at "Players' Eligibility" or something like that:

Gila nedes confidence and maybe a little more pure power, nothing else. He knows how to score.

Oh, come on! Again the coach is bad....Look the players develop if they want to develop themselves. The coach can help, but he cant do all the job. So saying that "Gila or Adriano do not score because the coach is bad", is like saying "I dont do my job well just because the boss of the company is an idiot". Look at Kaka, Jankulovski, Gourcuff and Sheva (when he was in Milan) - they developed well with the same coach.
I agree that maybe Ancelotti should have left at the end of the previous season, but he is not a bad coach, and he definately is not the reason for bad development of Gila. Ancelotti on the contrary have put too much faith into Gila, gave him loads of chances to prove himself. Adriano is another unstable player (unstable mentally and in performance). And this is again not the coach's fault - it is his own problem. If you cannot control your own emotions, then why do you go to professional football at all? So I really disagree and I really think that we do not need Adriano.

hitmannq8, my friend.
I´m just using your post to talk about Gago...I really don´t understand this hype about this guy. A saw Gago playing several times, is a good player, but to a team like Madrid pay 18MIL for this guy is crazy.

I was afraid to talk about this, because I´m brazilian, and maybe this opinion sounds biased. I don´t denny that Gago has talent, but IMO it isn´t better than Lucas Leiva...both have great quality, but Lucas has more power, goal and pace. Lucas also will have EU passport(like Gago)...

So, I really hope that R. Madrid paid this 18 Mil for Gago, and maybe Milan pay 9 or 10 mil for the winner of Golden Ball of Brasilian Championship (like we did w/ Kaka in the past).

BTW, the new rumor in Brazil said that Inter wants to send Carini for Grêmio to purchase Lucas and loan for Empoli:
http://globoesporte.globo.com/ESP/Noticia/0,,AA1394143-4274,00.html
If we looe also Lucas, that will be a EU player and starter of Brazil NT in the near future, for Inter, for just 9 or 10 MIL ...I will be very pis## :mad:

You´re right...
The people in Porto Alegre(city of Grêmio and Internacional) was very high on Alexandre Pato before the rest of us(brazilians) ever to see the kid play. It was like the hype on Ronaldinho in the past...
The boy was the top scorer(and champion) of the first Brazilian U-20 Championship, and they said that even Arsene Wenger send a assistant to watch Pato to play. This was why the kid only play 3 professional games this year...Internacional board was wise, and hold the boy debut(professional) until they agreed new terms of contract(the A. Pato price was only 2 millions in the old contract)...

IMO A. Pato is worth the gamble...all scouts reports that I saw are positives. Great kid, player and professional...and also, a fast and skilled support striker, that we need so much...

I've seen him on diffrent occasions he is good but he isn't efficient enough. He makes for instance great moves, great dribbels but his shot flies nearer to the cornerflag than the goal. If he can work those things out he would be a great assest if not he would be our very very weak point...

I see he's a midfielder but dunno if he's a defensive or attacking one. If he's an attacking mid then it's maybe even good news for Milan that Real got him. They won't need Kaka now.

i wonder if they would still keep Diarra if they have signed Gago..

Reports in Italy say that if Borriello is positive for doping, it would make a Iaquinta deal alot harder.. If that is the case then i think we should try and get Cassano, or Di Natale instead..

It appears they just lost their tamoil deal what is a huge financial blow so perhaps they will have to sell some players

Milan’s Iaquinta move in doubt Friday 22 December, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Milan’s proposed January bid for Vincenzo Iaquinta has hit the rocks after Marco Borriello tested positive for a banned substance.

The Rossoneri were hoping to tempt Udinese into selling their star striker by offering cash and Borriello in exchange.

However, the former Under-21 international has been suspended as a precautionary measure and could face a lengthy ban if his B test also comes back as positive.

The San Siro giants are desperately looking for a new striker seeing the performances of their misfiring attackers so far this term

Although Alberto Gilardino seems to have finally awoken, Pippo Inzaghi and summer signing Ricardo Oliveira continue to struggle in front of goal.

As a result, Milan may now look elsewhere and they are being strongly linked with Fabio Quagliarella.

The Sampdoria ace has been hot so far this term and he’s netted some real gems amongst his nine Serie A strikes in 2006-07.

The 23-year-old is co-owned by Udinese and may find it tough for a regular shirt at Doria given the competition posed by Francesco Flachi, Emiliano Bonazzoli and Fabio Bazzani.

Quagliarella, formerly of Ascoli and Torino, would also come with the added bonus of being available to play in the Champions League.

Milan are through to the last 16 of the competition and will face Scottish giants Celtic when the tournament resumes in the New Year.


Oh, boy, we are THAT desperate? We are "strongly" linked with a guy who "may find it tough for a regular shirt at Doria" :v46: :w212:

the guys is good, very good and is still young. granted, he's not an established player yet but at least he's young and has the potential to make it big ... and he won't break the bank either.
That article makes it sound as if he's on Samp's bench but given his perfomances so far, if there is one sure name in Samp's attack, that him ... it's the other 3 - Flachi, Bonazolli, and Bazzani - who would be fighting for a starting place, not him.

if he keeps up his performance i think he will be established this season.. if he keeps on scoring he could be considered for the national side, well considering Donadoni is trying different options..

I don't really know what he is but he his style is called to be similar to Redondo. We all know what this means I guess, a creative defensive midfielder that is thef first pawn in an attack, who wins balls and gives great passes with a flair of a soccergenius etc
a bit like pirlo

anyway I think Real will have to build a new stadium pretty soon, coz they have put those players somewhere. Another option is that they might ask FIFA together with chelsea that they can field 16 playersinstead of 11

I've read it few days ago, and this article confirms how Lazio want to include one of Simone Inzaghi or Sereni in the potential transfer.
If one of the 2 does joins Milan together with Oddo, do you think it means Milan won't search for new striker or goalkeeper in January ?
Simone Inzaghi has very high wages and ain't playing at all in Lazio, so it's understandable that Lotito will try to get rid of him.
It's interesting though, that if he comes to Milan, the Inzaghi brothers will finally be together in a same club !

Heinze wont be going anywhere, Utd need him and he is happy to stay. I dont know where the idea came from that he is too slow for Serie A though? he may not have the pace of Ashley Cole at left back but few do, he is probably as fast as any of the Milan defence.

He may be too reckless for Serie A though :cool: remember his tackle in the world cup that shouldve earnt a red card? he does them quite often in the Premiership but because of the speed of the game he usually gets away with it. I cant help but feel that with the generally slower style in Serie A his reckless tackles would stand out a lot more and inevitably he would get a lot of suspensions ;)

You shouldn't be anoyed by this. Apart from a CD ( Barzagli) Milan doesn't actually needs any of the other 3 players atm.
Pirlo and Gattuso are covering the midfield good enough so Mascherano will have to be benched, while for Juve he's very much needed because C.Zanetti can't do everything alone in midfield.
As for the attackers, with Trezeguet most probably signing for Lyon, Juve will have only Zalayeta as a striker ( Del Piero plays behind the strikers and Bojinov is loaned from Fiorentina) and one of Klose-Huntelaar is a must sign. Milan on the other hand has Gila as a striker, so you don't need Klose or Huntelaar atm.

AC Milan close in on Cassano - reports
28.12 || webmaster

Football Italia

Antonio Cassano is close to joining Milan on a loan deal in January, according to the latest reports in Spain.

The Bari-born striker is near to ending his unfortunate adventure with the Galacticos and Rossoneri officials are allegedly in Madrid to finalise the details of the deal which would bring the former Azzurri man to the San Siro.

The Spanish giants do not intend to accept the player’s indiscipline any longer and are willing to accept less than the £3.5m invested in January to bring the striker to the Santiago Bernabeu.

If the two clubs should reach an agreement, Cassano might move immediately to Milan on a loan deal until the end of the season, with an option to buy him for £3.2m at the end of the term.

The only obstacle which might now prevent the transfer could be represented by Real Madrid’s repeated attempts to bring Kaka to Spain. If the Merengues were to ask for an option on the Brazilian player to be included in the agreement the negotiation would be interrupted.

In the meantime, Leandro Grimi is expected to land in Milan on Thursday, where he will sign a five-year contract.

The 21-year-old Argentine, who arrives with the added bonus of an EU passport, grew up in the Huracan youth team before moving to Racing Avellaneda this year, when he was voted as the best young player in the Apertura tournament.

“Joining an important club like Milan is a dream come true, I am very happy,” stated Grimi before leaving Argentina.

According to today's ITV news (http://www.itv-football.co.uk/CL_Story/0,14272,6109_1783155,00.html):

"Milan confirm Oddo capture

AC Milan will sign Massimo Oddo from Lazio in January and intend to strengthen their squad even further, says vice-president Adriano Galliani.

Despite entering contract negotiations with Lazio, the defender is expected to move on during the transfer window as talks are far from reaching any conclusion.

Galliani is quoted as saying: "In January we will sign Oddo and beyond him another defender. Indeed, if the market allows us, we won't stop there."

The Rossoneri have also been linked with a move for Internacional's promising 17 year-old striker Alexandre Pato.

"Milan has a Brazilian spirit and we intend for that to continue," commented Galliani on the speculation."

Is it another lie, or are we really buying Oddo?

here's another one about oddo from channel 4

Oddo man out
Friday 29 December, 2006
Massimo Oddo looks set to leave Lazio after Coach Delio Rossi admitted the skipper can leave if he is unhappy.

The right-back, a World Cup winner this summer, has been linked with a Milan switch for a while now – and it could finally go through in January.

“I hope Massimo stays with us because I believe he has a future with this team,” stated Rossi. “But I believe that we shouldn’t keep a player who wants to move away.

“By me Oddo should end his career with Lazio because he is our idol. But if he goes to Milan we will do without him.

“We didn’t want to sell anyone, but if a player asks to go then a team needs to look for a replacement.”

Lazio President Claudio Lotito is likely to accept Milan’s offer of Pasquale Foggia plus £4m in the next few days.

Regardless of his skipper’s future, Rossi is already looking ahead to the New Year – and there could be a surprise arrival in the pipeline.

“I expect a lot from Valon Behrami, who has a great talent but was stopped by an injury,” insisted the Coach.

“I have also got a sympathy for Antonio Cassano, but maybe that’s because I have never been his boss!”

With an extra £4m set to be added to the transfer budget, could we see the Brat from Bari back in Rome with his former side’s hated neighbours?

well, better late than never.

Tony29.
29-12-2006, 16:02
What i can't understand about Lazio is why would they sell their best player to Milan, in January allready for 6 M Euro only.
I remember Zlatanov said Oddo's contract expires in 6 months, so yes, it's logical Lazio would like to cash something on him.
But what's not logical is why would they sell him for 4-8 M Euro, to their greatest rival for the 4th place.
Lazio still has 5 pts and match at home against Milan as their advantage. If they sell Oddo to Milan, they can say bye bye to the 4th place and they'll certanly lose the money from the eventual CL Campaign 2007/08 ( they'll lose much more than what they'll get for Oddo).

So, Lazio's options are :
a) Sell Oddo for, lets say, 6 M Euro, and certanly lose the chance for 4th place.
b) Don't sell Oddo, keep their chances for 4th place and bigger money from CL, but certanly lose the money from Oddo.

This may as well be the reason why both teams can't come out with a deal.


I guess Lazio's president is trying to get something like this :
C) Sell Oddo, lose the chances for CL, but get good money that will cover the potential money taken from their potential appearance in the CL next season. And by good money he probably means over 10 M Euro.

As you can see ( according to the price Lazio is asking for Oddo) , Lazio is trying to get something in between.
They have some 20 M Euro waiting for them if they get into CL, for what they'll need Oddo ( But it's a 40-60 chance).
And they have certain 6 M Euro if they sell Oddo now.

So, the question is will they take the risk, lose the 6 M and play for 20 M. Or they won't risk to lose everything and they'll take the 6 M they have in their hands.
It all depends on how much of a gambler Lazio's president is, imo !

zlatanov
29-12-2006, 16:27
it would be a bit of gamble to go with losing 6-10 (this is roughly how much Oddo will cost Milan in terms of pure cash + a player) for sure and go with a really stretched chance of getting a CL spot.

True, qualifying for CL groups, if they qualify that is ;), would bring Lazio somewhere around 15-20 mil but right now anything other than 4th spot looks unlikely and for that last CL spot there are a whole bunch of teams fighting - Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina, Udinese, Samp, and many other smaller teams like Catania, which have been having a great campaign so far.

Chances are that, as Serie A progresses, the number of teams fighting for 4th place will come down to Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina, and maybe Samp.
Lazio are in this fight thanks largely to a great run of form, which will soon turn into a string of less convincing/average results as a team's perfomance do vary in ups and downs over an entire season and soon merely staying in the contest for 4th spot will become increasingly more difficult.

That's why I think Lotito has made up his mind already once it became clear that, with that salary cap policy at Lazio, they won't be able to keep Oddo and extend his contract ... right now it's just that moment of "let's see how much more I can get from them" moment, which is part of any negotiation process.

Mehdi

I'm not sure why you think Lazio are Milan's strongest contenders for 4th place, I would expect Fiorentina to eventually overtake Lazio in the table.

Tony29.
29-12-2006, 16:45
right now it's just that moment of "let's see how much more I can get from them" moment, which is part of any negotiation process.
Most probably.
But i won't be suprised if the negotiations last until January 21st, and then the final decission will be made. ( Lazio-Milan match is on January 21), or maybe even after January 28th when they play Palermo away, and many things may change if they get 4pts from these 2 matches.

I watched Lazio at least 10 times this season ( people here are crazy about Pandev :) ) , and i disagree a bit with your opinion that they used their momentum and they had a great run of form which will fall sooner or later. Despite Liverani leaving a huge hole in midfield, Lazio still has the 5th best team in Serie A ( Milan, Inter, Roma, Fiorentina in front of them, Palermo on par, imo ) . But that's Lazio with Oddo that has the 5th best team in A. Lazio will always be able to beat the smaller teams home/away, and they have the advantage of playing at home against all of their rivals for 4th place ( Milan, Fiorentina,Sampdoria).
I believe almost everything depends on their result against Milan. If they beat you, they have 8pts advantage and much better schedule then your team does. That's why i think they might wait until late January and see what they will do with Oddo.
Although,from the reports i read, chances for this to happen are smaller than the chances to sell you Oddo in early January.

We'll see :)

zlatanov
29-12-2006, 16:50
I see your point but after that lazio-Milan game there would still be half a season ahead of the teams and that too long a time, you know ... way too many things could happen/change and I am not sure lotito would miss on a sure 10 mil or so because of things might seem like on and a little after Jan 21st.

Absolutely , and i share your opinion that's what Lotito will do.
Just that, i was putting myself in his place :) . I would take the risk and wait until January 21st. If "we" don't beat Milan, we sell them Oddo. If we beat them i'll take the risk and try to use the advantage of 8pts, no european matches and better schedule, despite the disadvantage of having much weaker team than Milan does and the fact there will be 18 whole matches to be played until the end of the season.
That's a great chance Lazio will have if they beat you. Maybe the last chance to finally get out of the awful financial situation they are in.
But i ain't no bussinesman and Lotito is. And i don't care about Lazio, while he does. So whatever he does, he'll do it for the best of his club.
And it looks like he'll sell Oddo to Milan in a matter of days, so don't pay atention to my crazy theories :devf:

C) Sell Oddo, lose the chances for CL, but get good money that will cover the potential money taken from their potential appearance in the CL next season. And by good money he probably means over 10 M Euro.

As you can see ( according to the price Lazio is asking for Oddo) , Lazio is trying to get something in between.
They have some 20 M Euro waiting for them if they get into CL, for what they'll need Oddo ( But it's a 40-60 chance).
And they have certain 6 M Euro if they sell Oddo now.

So, the question is will they take the risk, lose the 6 M and play for 20 M. Or they won't risk to lose everything and they'll take the 6 M they have in their hands.
It all depends on how much of a gambler Lazio's president is, imo !


My husband told me that there is such policy in Lazio that doesnt allow paying a player more then 500,000 euros a year. If that is so - then it is really small money for such a player as Oddo. He said that he wants to stay in Lazio and that he is ready to find a compromise with the club, if they stop taking a piss and will go towards his needs too. Seems to me that conversation is about money. Oddo is ready to stay in Lazio if he is paid more money, but the club doesnt want (or cannot) pay him more. And as Oddo stated already his next contract is going to be his last, so now he thinks about his future and in case Lazio disagrees to pay him more, he is ready to go to Milan.

tell your husband that he got it right ... this time :grinser:
the above pretty much sums it up why Lazio are "forced" to sell by a number of circumstances, and sell as soon as possible unless they want to lose him on a free transfer.

He knows he got it right...he is Lazio supporter...I just thought that it is very strange policy, very harmful for the club. Then I guess Oddo will come to Milan.

it's not something that Lazio are doing just for kicks ... they are doing it because this is the only way for them to survive as a club and also, after Cragnotti filed for bankrupcy several years ago, the club was placed under the supervision of a banking institution or something like that and consequently the salary cap was introduced as part of a plan to save the club from total financial collapse and demotion to the amateur leagues.

I understand that they are not doing it for fun...but what about finding new sponsors? Is it not an extra possible solution for them?

Bojinov Reveals Milan Interest The Fiorentina forward, currently on loan at Juventus, has overtaken Antonio Cassano in the Rossoneri's shortlist to sign a new striker during the January transfer market.
Bojinov Reveals Milan Interest

With Borriello suspended due to being found positive to an anti-doping test, Milan are searching for a new striker to fill in the gap left by the young Italian forward.

Up till a few days ago, everything seemed to point towards a move of Cassano to Milan, but negotiations are currently at a stall. For this reason, Carlo Ancelotti is now looking elsewhere, in particular at Valeri Bojinov who is finding it difficult to win a place with the starting eleven at Juventus in Serie B.

The Bulgarian forward admitted the Milan interest, even though ultimately the possible move does not depend from him.

"Milan wants me," declared Bojinov, "But it does not depend from me. It's up to Milan to negotiate with Juve and Fiorentina."

geez, we won't buy a player who can't start for a serie b club, right?

I don't like him at all. His attitude is even worse than Assano's :1ang:

Milan Offer Kaladze For Mexes The Rossoneri are desperately seeking a new young central defender to rejuvenate an aging rearguard with most players well over the 30-year-old mark.
Milan Offer Kaladze For Mexes

Milan have apparently offered Kakha Kaladze to Roma to arrive to the French central defender Philippe Mexes. The Rossoneri have allegedly contacted the player's agent, Olivier Jouanneaux, who has also been contacted by Juventus.

Both teams have offered Mexes a 5-year-deal of 2 million Euros per year, but the Rossoneri have the advantage that they are also offering Kaladze as part-exchange. More will be known in the next hours, with the Rossoneri highly active in the transfer market and being linked to various players, mainly defenders and strikers.

These rumours have not yet been confirmed, but with Milan's urgency to sign a central defender, anything is possible.

If the deal does go through, then Juventus will have to look elsewhere to sign the much needed central defender for next season.


and what do you think about this? "The Rossoneri are desperately seeking a new young central defender to rejuvenate an aging rearguard with most players well over the 30-year-old mark."Kaladze iz 28, I think...

I dont know whether I should hope for this move or not...I like Kakhaber...

I can't disagree more.
For one thing, no matter if it's serie A ,B or Tanzanian serie C, if you're very young and you have Del Piero and Trezeguet as your rivals for starting 11, chances for you to be a first choice attacker are limited.

Valeri is only 20 years old, and he has 5 years experience in serie A and Italian football !!!! Try to beat this ;).
He was pure gold whenever he played, and his goals were decisive most of the time. He's Juve's second best scorer atm in all competitions ( behind Del Piero) and all of his goals were pure magic.
Just for the record, his attitude is perfect so far this season.

But there might be a problem to sign him now, and i doubt it'll happen.
Milan will have to make a deal with both Juve and Fiorentina, because he's Fiorentina's player but has a contract with Juve till June.

You wanna say that he played in Serie A with 15 years :sweeteye: :rolleyes:

I don't like him because of his whining whenever he's not in starting 11, wherever he plays. :dontkn:

Yes :)

"Bojinov debuted in Italian Serie A on January 22, 2002, at the age of 15 years and 11 months for U.S. Lecce, becoming the youngest foreign player to make an appearance in the top level of Italian football. "

Edit : And for a youngster, he was doing great in serie A. From the age 15-19 , he scored 24 goals in serie A and more than 30 goals in all competitions.

Once again we're being linked with all and sundry; but I'll believe all this when I see results.

Right now my attitude is that the chances of someone coming in are 50-50.

I fear that the last two wins may prompt the management to keep their wallets shut.

I think it would be very good for the club if we could get Mexes but not if we have to give up Kala for it!

Antonio Cassano’s move to Milan could be abandoned in favour of Juventus benchwarmer Valeri Bojinov.

The Italian international is set to leave Real Madrid in January, just a year after his arrival from Roma, due to poor form and repeated rows with the club hierarchy, including Coach Fabio Capello.

While the Rossoneri look ready to sign a new striker to reinforce the side next month, Cassano could be considered more trouble than he is worth at the moment.

It’s reported the main sticking point is his future, as Cassano insists on a permanent move, whereas Milan would prefer a loan deal with an option to buy.

Instead, newspapers now report that Carlo Ancelotti is looking closer to home for an alternative, as Bojinov is eager to leave Juventus.

Even in Serie B, the Bulgarian prodigy cannot find space with Alessandro Del Piero, David Trezeguet and even Marcelo Zalayeta preferred ahead of him.

Bojinov shot to fame with Lecce as a teenager and was a flop at Fiorentina following his high-profile switch.

Loaned out to Juve in exchange for Adrian Mutu this summer, he has often criticised Coach Didier Deschamps for leaving him on the bench.

“Milan are interested in me,” Bojinov told the Italian media this weekend. “It’s not up to me, though. They have to negotiate with Juventus and Fiorentina.”

The Turin giants have an option to buy out half his contract by June 20 for £4m, but do not seem intent on doing so.

Meanwhile, Genoa are said to be tracking Bojinov's former Lecce teammate, Javier Chevanton, who is now at Monaco.

Like i said before, this Bojinov deal is a really complicated matter, and i can't see him leaving Juventus in January.
At this moment he is 100% Fiorentina player, so i guess Viola won't have any problems selling him to Milan. But the problem is again with Juventus. Juve doesn't own Bojinov but they have him on loan under contract until June, when they'll be allowed to buy half of his contract for 6 M Euro.
So, the only chance for Milan to get him now is to pay at least 10 M Euro to Fiorentina, the team that owns Bojinov, but Milan will also have to pay few Milions to Juve, the team that doesn't owns even 1% of Bojinov.
Juve is in really interesting position right now. They don't own Bojinov but they can ask for money if someone wants to get Bojinov in January.
In June the situation may become more clear if Juve decides not to buy half of Boji's contract, but it can become even more complicated if Juve gives £4m to Fiorentina and gets 50% of Bojinov.

Very complicated matter, like i said :)
