AC Milan and Udinese have joined the race for Estudiantes striker Mariano Pavone.
Pavone has thrived under the coaching of Diego Simeone in the last 12 months at Estudiantes and has been a long-term target for Genoa president Enrico Preziosi.

However, Milan chiefs Adriano Galliani and Ariedo Braida have made contact about Pavone's availability and while his Argentine club are demanding £8 million, a fee closer to £3.5 million will be enough to land the forward.

Udinese president Giampaolo Pozzo has also made an approach and they're actually regarded as favourites ahead of Milan as they have room in their squad for another non-European signing.


Anybody got any news on this player? is he any good for us?

he was Estudiantes' (argentinian champion) top scorer, he scored the goal in the final vs Boca. He is a strong player, really dangerous inside the box, a very good forward in my opinion, the best in Argentina last year.

Well, i think it would be a great signing. because as i said he is strong and i think he could do great in Calcio, he is 24 years old and has the necessary experience for moving to european football.

Chances are it's BS, which to me it is unless there's a source.

And the Chelsea rumor was just that, because there's no point in having Dida and Cech on the roster, especially since the latter will be back sooner than later.

zlatanov
31-12-2006, 17:25
but why??? they have Cudicini and Cech.. they also have Hilario who is pretty good for a 3rd-choice-keeper..
it was on sevaral websites and came out about the time when the center of discussion was Dida's renewal and Galliani said he was sure Dida would renew.

As for why Chelski want Dida, true, they do have a young and very good keeper like Cech but his condition leaves a lot of unknowns about his future ... in fact, there are question marks regarding whether he will ever return to playing professional football and if he does, how would this injury have affected him.

They do have Cudicini but at CHelski the Italian is just that - a reserve keeper - and will never be seen as a permanent replacement for Cech.
Also, Dida is indeed one of the top 3-4 keeprs in the European football - last season put aside - and players like that don't become available every day on a free contract, you know.
So, in case Cech returns a different man than he was before that injury, if he returns that is, Dida on a free contract is basically the next best thing that could happen to Chelski after getting Buffon for free.
Provided that Cech comes back in his good old shape, Chelski can always keep Dida as star back up or just plain sell him to another team and keep Cudicini as a back-up keeper ... remember, they would be getting Dida on a free contract, so it's not like they have much to lose here, do they?

One other reason why Chelski may very well be Dida's new club is ... well, when was the last time Chelski had to be in need of a player to go after him. Those guys have bought pretty much every star player out there, available or not, and have packed their team with expensive players so densely that they have players like J. Cole, Robben, Wright-Phillips rotting on the bench ... why should it be any different when it comes to getting a new great keeper like Dida?

That's pretty scary...I'd heard somewhere that he would be out for only as much as three months. He's so young as well; I really hope something like this won't wind up ending his career.

Heh. :) Seriously, I guess my biggest concern is that when Cech comes back, will Dida wind up as just another guy in a Chelski uniform who's collecting butt splinters on the bench? Plus, he's aware that he doesn't have many years left in European football, and at this stage probably wouldn't be high on becoming a backup.

Provided that Cech comes back in his good old shape, Chelski can always keep Dida as star back up or just plain sell him to another team and keep Cudicini as a back-up keeper ... remember, they would be getting Dida on a free contract, so it's not like they have much to lose here, do they?
From what I've heard, he likely wants to go back to Brazil should Milan not re-sign him, and if he were to go to Chelski, there's the added difficulty of adapting to a new country and all the trappings that go with it.

Pardon my naivete, but I'm not sure about the point you're trying to make there.

Anyway, great post. :)

Milanese waltz for Lupoli Tuesday 2 January, 2007
Channel4.com
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Milan derby is set to be played out on the transfer market for Arsenal owned forward Arturo Lupoli.

The Under-21 Italian international has just six months left on his Arsenal contract and he’s seemingly looking for a return to the peninsula.

A host of Italian clubs are keen, but Milan and Inter have now come forward for the attacker who is on loan at Derby until the end of the season.

“He is liked by Torino, Napoli and Fiorentina, but Inter and Milan have registered their interest in the last few days,” agent Claudio Pasqualin told Teleradiostereo Sport.

“Although he is very young, his contract is set to expire because the player wants to go home, despite Arsenal’s interest in renewing his contract.

“As a result, they are now ready to sell him in January for a small fee rather than losing him for nothing at the end of the campaign.

“The only obstacle is that Derby County, who signed him on loan until June, are still counting on his services.”

Lupoli, who was netted by the Londoners as a teenager from Parma, has been likened to Paolo Rossi by Arsenal ace Thierry Henry.

140 million is a HUUUGGGEE amount of money. Do they have that much? I doubt that...To get that money they ll have to sell half of their players, if not more. That sounds crazy and not rational. If they do really suggest this money for Kaka I would ask Real's directors to go and check their mental health, as it is obviousely not too well.

Real is holding the record purchase, after paying 66 M Euro for Zidane.
If someone is going to brake Zidane's record, it's Kaka or Ronaldinho.
But 140 M is huge.
70-80 M Euro should be the next record purchase !

Channel four
Milan are planning a January move for Vincenzo Iaquinta of Udinese, even if boss Carlo Ancelotti insists that Massimo Oddo is their primary objective.

The Rossoneri had already been paired with the Bianconero during the summer, when the Via Turati outfit were searching for an Andriy Shevchenko replacement.

He was then recently linked with the club again after the giants were ready to offer Udinese the services of Marco Borriello, before he was suspended for failing a drugs test.

However, Milan are now ready to make a cash only bid for the £8.5m valued attacker who would be eligible to play in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti has made no secret of his desire to see Lazio right-back Oddo join his outfit this month.

“I am not worried as there is time until January 31 to sign him,” said the Coach before leaving for Malta, where the side will train for the next week before Serie A resumes on January 13.

“I didn’t expect him to leave for Malta with us, but I have spoken with the club and everything is very clear. We will wait and see what happens.

“Meanwhile, we already have a new player who nobody knows in Leandro Grimi. He is very young and interesting,” added Ancelotti.

Milan will fly back to Italy on Saturday to play the Trofeo Berlusconi tie with Juventus at the San Siro and will then return to Malta to complete their preparation.




To be honest I don't think milan need him I think he is to similar with gila and inzaghi.
Is Lupoli worth mentioning? is he good, could we use him?
I've never seen him play and I don't know him at all.

140 million is a HUUUGGGEE amount of money. Do they have that much?

They have a new TV deal that gives them €110M per year. Still, that transfer sum would exceed that and would most likely be their whole transfer budget for two years. not to forget they already spent more than €35M on players before the year began :p157:

Lupoli plays in the second division in England and Pozzi seldom gets a game for Empoli, neither are currently good enough for Milan. But both could be in the most forseenable future.

I still hopethat we can get Casano, as he is far better suited for our team than Iaquinta. And, Casssano is still young. When he is in shape, he is a super player. After him, we can install Oddo in RBposition and mybe some CB like Alexis.... 3 players are not too much,we need then...

Also apart from that todays news is that Inter are interested in Gilberto, and milan are not that far behind. I know alot of ppl wont believe me when I say Gilberto is an awsome player, him and henry are the heart of arsenal and it would be hard to see him go.

from calciomercato.....in short.....

Bronzetti says Oddo will become rossonero inthe next few days when Lazio president comes back to Italy. Also, Milan will NOT go for any forward, not Cassano and not Bojinov...

In the meantime.... :).... we are linked with Pato again, and some papers say Milan is ready to pay around 10 mil for him. He is the best young Brazilian,and that needs to mean something. Im not sure he can make an instant impact in Milan, but im all up for Milan to sign him as soon as possible.

Then again....Marseille wants 22 mil euro for Ribery....not that much? Mexes and ALexis are still in for Milan....

I've seen Gilberto play many times, a great player. And has scored a few this season.

Ribery signing would be awesome and I would rather see Lupoli (someone with potential) sign, than Vincenzo Iaquinta :5dito: :rone:.

Oddo coming to Milan is 99.9% certain. :rock3:

Ook Milan aast op Onyewu

03 januari 2007, 17:43
Door: Roy van den Berghe
Het lijkt nog slechts een kwestie van tijd te zijn voordat Oguchi Onyewu Standard Luik verlaat. De verdediger mag voor een bepaald bedrag vertrekken bij de Belgische eersteklasser en staat in de belangstelling van vele topclubs.


Zo was al bekend dat Chelsea, Real Madrid en Fulham belangstelling hebben voor de Amerikaan, maar nu heeft ook AC Milan zich bij dat rijtje gevoegd. Onyewu zou volgens de Gazet van Antwerpen zelfs al hebben onderhandeld met de Milanezen, die in de international een ideale aanwinst voor hun defensie zien.

Afgelopen zomer ketste een transfer van Onyewu naar Real Madrid op het allerlaatste moment af, omdat Standard niet akkoord ging met een bod van acht miljoen euro. Inmiddels zou de vraagprijs zo'n zes miljoen euro bedragen.

link: http://nieuws.voetbalprimeur.nl/nieuws.php?id=42645

i'll tell the most important things in short:

AC milan is interested in buying Onyewu, he is a central defender, plays in jupilar league (belgium). he is awarded best american player.

chelsea ,fullham, real madrid are already interested in him. in the past real madrid already tried to buy em for about 8mil€ but standard didn't agree with the transfer somme.

now onyewu is listed for about 6mil € , because standard had an agreement to let onyewu go this winter... if he wanted it...

I think that Milan needs already world class striker, not some young talent, that could maybe or maybe not be a great player... We need someone to push the Gila or Oliveira who are good players, somebody to take off the pressure off them, somebody like Sheva was, who can solve a game with one move, not some youngster that will maybe get some chance to play...

rosoneri_11
03-01-2007, 13:57
For me players that might become a world class striker and you can buy them is Torres,Tevez,Huntelaar.

But milan is not connected with them.I think Iaquinta will be very very usefull to us if we sign him.
The guy called Pato i haven't seen from him a great drible,or goal,or cross,or pass,or move,nothing............but he is only 17 so i can't speak for him yet.

Do you have some text to go with this picture, maybe the title of the paper,... ? no other paper seemed to reported this, it's the first time I hear of a possible swap deal... Tudor has been on standard wish list for many years but time after time he rejected to join them.
He is quite similar with Onyewu (tall strong defender) so it's only natural they gonna try to get him again to replace him.
Onyewu is perfect for the EPL, I doubt milan would want him but then again it's silly season anything can happen and I think we could do much worse ;)

Oddo confirms Milan offer
Wednesday 3 January, 2007
Massimo Oddo has confirmed that a January move to Milan is very much on the cards for the Lazio captain.

“There’s no point hiding from the fact,” he told local Lazio-based radio programme ‘La Voce della Nord.’

“There is an important offer from Milan on the table and therefore my future at Lazio is in doubt. In any case, we need to find the best solution for everyone.”

The Rossoneri have been interested in the right-back, who they see as the heir to Marcos Cafu, for several years.

Following his part in the 2006 World Cup victory, Biancocelesti patron Claudio Lotito slapped an £8m price-tag on the 30-year-old and talks stalled, but hopes of a January agreement are still high as far as he is concerned.

“Obviously, I’d like for Lazio to also be satisfied with an eventual deal, so the decision won’t just be a personal one from me.”

It’s believed Milan have offered £4m cash plus the services of talented youngster Pasquale Foggia.

Oddo started his career in the Rossoneri youth system and has been at Lazio since 2002, where he joined from Hellas Verona.

The Biancocelesti will fly out to Dubai for a winter training camp on January 5.

I noticed one interesting thing. Whenever news come out about Milan being interested in some player, after few days we read similar news but this time it's Inter or Juve interested in the same player.
The same happens if the original news is about Juve being interested in some player ( as in this case) , and after few days Milan and Inter become interested in him.

Do these newspapers invent these news, or Milan, Inter and Juve are really going after the same players ????


well no, but perhaps belgium newspapers get more info then yours...
but juve are chasing big players and so is inter
just milan are chasing less good players

i don't know but juve is in serie B and they are planning to buy some good young players or great 25 28 YO players... milan will buy +30 players or some cheap not promising young players

only pato, but will he come? I HOPE SO, but i wonder

i just folow the transfer news, and i will see on the 31th of january who milan bought and other teams...

but yea in the summer : millan was linked with some great players and who has come???? none yes gourcuff has come THE ONLY GOOD TRANSFER they did this year...

i am not very fond of oddo he is already 30 :|
why not invest in barzagli

Because Barzagli can't play right back. Oddo is already 30, but I think he can still play 3-5 years at his highest level

Getting oddo from lazio is a great deal..not only we will have a quality right back with oddo,but also means that we are taking arguably Lazio`s best player. And Lazio is serious contender for he 4th place,not catania,or udinese or empoli its Lazio the one that we should be afraid of.

from channel 4:

http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/jan4d.html

Milan are reportedly keen on Monaco striker Marco Di Vaio, who could join the Rossoneri on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old had been mentioned as a target for the San Siro outfit a year ago, as he is liked by Coach Carlo Ancelotti, but negotiations failed because he was Cup-tied.

Di Vaio is currently contracted to the French club until 2008, but has reached an agreement which would allow him to leave as early as January on a free transfer, allowing Monaco to cut his £2.4m salary from the wage bill.

Milan could therefore decide to sign the former Parma man, who would favour a return to the peninsula and could be immediately fielded in the Champions League.

The player’s agent Franco Zavaglia, however, has dismissed all rumours suggesting his client was close to leaving the Ligue 1 side, where he signed a two-year contract in the summer.

“I think an immediate transfer is very difficult, despite the player’s will,” said Zavaglia to news agency GRT.

“Di Vaio has an agreement with Monaco and would prefer to end the season with them before considering the option of leaving.”

The Via Turati outfit have also been paired with both Valeri Bojinov and Antonio Cassano, but it now seems unlikely that either player will move to the San Siro.

Vincenzo Iaquinta of Udinese also remains a target for the Rossoneri, but the £8.5m price tag might force Milan to postpone any move for the world champion until the summer.

Oddo Reveals Milan Offer The Lazio defender admitted that Milan have made an important offer for him, and he will most likely play for the Rossoneri in the coming weeks.
Oddo Reveals Milan Offer
zoom - galleria
Massimo Oddo confirmed what many had been speculating in the past weeks: the World Cup winning full-back is on his way to Milan.

This was admitted by the same player during a radio program.

"It's useless to hide ourselves, there's an important offer from Milan and my future at Lazio is in doubt," he said.

"However, we must not just take decisions which please only me, there should also be the best solution for Lazio."

The negotiations between Milan and Lazio have been going on for months, as the player was first expected to join the Rossoneri in the past summer. This would be a return to Milan for Oddo, as the player started off his career with the Rossoneri’s youth team.

Why is Iaquinta remaining a target i dont no hes not much different to Gila or Pippo to think he will help us win the CL hes not we are just gonna waste 8 mil + hes worth half that price
There's no hype around him or maybe his name isn't catchy enough, so i understand why he's so much underrated.
He's worthy to pay 8 M for him , IMO. He'll never be your Shevchenko, or Arsenal's Henry, but he's perfect to play in a big club, not in Udinese.
He did help Lippi and Italy to win the WC, why won't he help you win the CL ?
With him on the field , as a sub ( i believe he'll be mostly used as a sub in Milan) Italian game did change in the WC final, and especially WC semifinal, where he, Gila and Del Piero brought the life back to a boring match.
He, almost single handedly, took Udinese in the Champions league, where he scored 3 goals on 5 matches.
And his biggest advantage, he can play in Gila's and Oliveira's position, and score 10 goals per season.
At the end : He is a World Champion !

He's not the one i'd like to be my first choice striker or my main player, but you can hardly find better player in Italy, who'll be ready to enter the field in 65th or 75th minute and still to have what it takes to make a difference !

If Lippi apreciated him and if Milan decides to buy him, then this guy is really worthy, ain't he ?

Milan_Mad
04-01-2007, 12:00
Thats what i would like though a 1st team striker thats what we need to go with Gila you are correct Iaquinta helped italy to win the world cup playing on the wing but if he could do that against teams like Chelsea and Barca i dont think so he has started this season quite well not on fire. If we are to sign him i would like him in January if we dont then i would like to find a better striker in the summer and not go after him again

drucurl
04-01-2007, 13:48
1)we need a striker we can depend on. Everybody is inconsistent atm.
2)Iaquinta is more of a goal poacher than a support striker. We need someone more in the mould of ADP, Sheva, ronaldinho, ronaldo who can create as much as they can score. I agre that he worked very well on the right wing for Italy...but as I like to say with Gila...one swallow doesn't make a summer
3)Speed and creativity are the keys...sort of like an Olivera with results :guw: Ideally this would be Messi or Ronaldo (if he plays even half as well as he used to)...I'm keeping my eye on Alexandre Pato....maybe he could work??

Huntelaar has gone to juve from calciomercato.

It's just another rumour ! ;)


Here's the full article from Calciomercato ( i translated it, so i'll give you the English version only)

Juve follows Huntelaar
------------------
Morabito (I have no idea who's he) has revelead that Juve is following Huntelaar but at this moment there is nothing more. Its clear that we are speaking about a forward that isn't like a lot of forwards in Europe - He's the new Van Nistelrooy . He will leave Ajax sooner or later but his value is very high and we have to watch which club will be ready to buy him. He has also spoken about Mavuba also followed by Juve: He is one of the most promising and strongest youngsters of the French League but Juve cares also about the Italian Market and i know players like Barzagli and Canini can match with the project of the bianconeri.

mrki
04-01-2007, 15:15
Juve is doing the right thing. Mavuba, Canini, Barzagli are super talents and could do well in Milan also. Not to mention Huntelaar. Yes, I know we have Gila, but Pippo is 33, and if we can get Huntelaar, then we should do so! Gilardino,Huntelaar, Cassano, that is the right combination for our attack :)

And second, from tribalfootbal, Milan is trying to sign Saviola, who isn´t in Barcaś plans for this season, but what is interesting is that Saviola didn´t played for Barca in Champions Leage, which means he could play for Milan in Champions League....


But now what is true, nobody knows, we´ll just have to wait... :5ok:

Is Udinese desperate to get rid of Iaquinta ??? :)

http://www.calciomercato.com/index.php?c=21&a=29167

Roberto Zanzi ( Udinese's GD) said that Iaquinta is free to leave Udine, and if Milan wants him they won't have any difficulties getting the attacker.


Also, after Juventus,Atletico Madrid and Benfika, now Milan is also interested in Jose Sosa, 21 years old Estudiantes player who reminds a lot of Juan Sebastian Veron.
Nevertheless, Atletico Madrid has the advantage over him and the other teams may come into the game only if the Spaniards and Estudiantes fail to come out with an agreement.

Im sure Milan will invest in summer, but im not sure we will buy more than Oddo in january. That might be a two sided decision,as if we dont reach 4th place, we will not be able to attract players we want in summer...

But getting Oddo and Cassano now would improve our first 11 significantly, not just on paper.

Udinese await Iaquinta offer
Friday 5 January, 2007
Udinese are ready to sell Vincenzo Iaquinta to Milan if the Rossoneri make an adequate offer, confirmed director general Roberto Zanzi.

The World Cup winner has been heavily paired with a move to the San Siro, although the Bianconeri management had reiterated recently that he would not be released.

“There have been no offers, but if the Rossoneri were to present one then they would have no problems in buying him,” said Zanzi to the GRT news agency.

“We will consider all requests and this is definitely a deal where the offer would be very important,” added the official, whose club value the attacker at £8.5m.

“In any case, we will wait and see, we are in no hurry whatsoever.”

Zanzi then moved on to speak about Sulley Ali Muntari, who he does not believe can become a target for other Italian clubs.

“He has great qualities, unfortunately this year he has got into trouble a few times from a disciplinary point of view.

“Sulley is an excellent person, but sometimes he lets foreign mermaids lure him. It is difficult for him to become a target on the Italian market.”

Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria, who is co-owned by Udinese, has netted some spectacular goals so far and has been eyed by several sides, including Milan and Inter.

“It’s too early to talk about Quagliarella,” noted Zanzi.

“The market has just started and there are still six months ahead of us before the end of term. The player did well last year as well, but he has finally found the continuity he needed.”


http://www.channel4.com/sport/football_italia/jan5k.html

I know many of you oppose to Iaquinta's arrival, but I can't see why? I mean, he's not that bad. Of course all of our attack problems won't be solved solely by him, we need more star power, but he can't do worse than Oli, can he? Pippo is getting old, I'd take Iaquinta over him any day.

Considering the names we are being connected to (Budan, Di Vaio, Quaria..something...) I think taking a World cup winner would be great. :)

Bojinov "offended" by Juve
Saturday 6 January, 2007
Valeri Bojinov is increasingly unlikely to stay at Juventus past this month after his agent dubbed it “an offence” he was left on the bench.

“Can Bojinov be considered the fifth-choice striker at a Serie B club, even if the side is called Juventus? I think this is an offence to football,” snapped Gennaro Palomba on Radio GRT.

The Bulgarian has been a magnet for controversy during his career, frozen out of the Fiorentina squad for demanding a move to Inter and repeatedly protesting at his lack of first team football in Turin.


I'm 100% sure I don't want this guy, to hell with his talent.

Oh no, not again. I really hope Galliani isnt being serious on this one. The last two 3-0 wins and the Berlusconi trophy win would be meaningless if we dont reinforce the squad this winter. What do we do if we dont sign Oddo? Keep playing Cafu til he's 50? Grimi is a signing for the future. He is in all likelihood not starting 11 material just as yet, so who have we got if Janku gets injured? I agree Aubameyang is a great replacement for Boriello, but do Inzaghi and Oliveira have enough quality to partner Gila up front? A signing like Cassano or Bojinov would do wonders to our attack.

Actually we won't have much of a problem if Janku is injured. Kaladze can play as left back, and it's Maldini's natural position. In addition we have Serginho, although he is injured at the moment. Even Bonera can play LB if necessary. I was surprised to see the club bring in a new left back, but he's probably a good investment for the future.

As far as our strikers are concerned, I think we already have three excellent attackers in the squad. None of them have credentials that can be questioned in any way, and Gila has been scoring regularly lately. If Oliveira and Pippo also start scoring goals again, then we should be ok.

rt9
07-01-2007, 00:31
Left back is still a problem for us. Kaladze can play that position, but he is not exactly the "attacking" left back we are looking for, especially if Carlo insists on playing Brocchi and Gattuso in midfield. Maldini can no longer play left back, except only in emergency situations---his pace and his knees have worn down with his age---although as a centerback, he is wonderful.

The striker position is where I have the most concern. Pippo is now 33, if we dont bring in a replacement soon, then when will we, when he's 38? Oliveira has not lived up to his potential and I dont know how many more games we can give him, as we need to be making a strong run in the league and only have knockout games left in the CL. Dont get me wrong, I still think Oli is a good player, but for now, maybe to back up our "new signing"---who IMO should be an established striker, who could step right in and make a difference. I think Cassano minus his attitude can do the job and even Bojinov. Imagine Gila and Cassano up front with Oli and Inzaghi as their subs---that makes the team much more balanced and we can at least boast some strength in depth.

The Rossoneri could sign the Brazilian striker already in January according to what has been reported by the Spanish daily newspaper AS this morning.

Real Madrid and Milan continue negotiating on various fronts, the latest of which is the possibility of Ronaldo returning to Italy to join the Rossoneri in what would be considered as a shock move considering the Brazilian’s Nerazzurro past.

Always according to the AS, this is a move by the Spanish giants to pave the path for luring Kaka to Madrid by the end of the season after the first negotiations in the past summer had failed, leading to a war of words between the two clubs.

Things between the two European heavyweights have improved and this offer would further attest this.

Milan were initially linked to a move with Cassano, but if these latest speculations are to be believed, then the Rossoneri could add another Brazilian to their South American ranks.


What do you think we will be overflowing with strikers at the end of this and none i really want tbh i hope we get Eto'o instead! its all a trap to try and swing Kaka' Madrid's way and Galliani and Berlu are Blind to it at the moment i think.

Andrea Barzagli is up for sale. I mean, if there is an ideal partner for Nesta then it is Barzagli. By purchasing Barzagli and Oddo we have perfect defence. But im 100% sure we will go for Mexes or Chivu and then fail.... :( Becouse that is the way we work these past few years.
Oddo-nesta-Barzagli-Kaladze... can it get any better??

kef
07-01-2007, 11:51
Andrea Barzagli would indeed be a good purchase, but it looks like Palermo want a lof of money for him. I can't disagree with them, because he is really good, but the question is if we need him now and if he's worth all the money. I think Milan will not buy him now in january, because they are only trying for Oddo, for the RB possition, because the reinforcement of the position is more needed. But if nobody buys him in January, it's verry possible that Milan will buy him in the summer transferperiod.

Pajo
07-01-2007, 16:05
I heard that Palermo wants more then 15 millions for Barzagli... He is great player, but is he worth those money???

And another issue... JuBe are bidding for him... I heard Real is bidding for him... Viola wants to trade Pazzini + some money for him... It would be hard for any team to get him. personally, I would like to see him in Inter, and Materazzi out of our team... Not gonna happen though...

zlatanov
07-01-2007, 16:19
actually, some weeks ago Palermo were talking of a sum as high as 25 mil for him, making 15 mil look like a sale price for Barzagli.

I personally think that 15 would be a bit blown up price for him with 10 being a more realistic sum for a talanted but strill hugely unproven player, who apart from Serie A games mostly against smaller teams, has yet to prove himself in really high-profile encounters like the ones in CL. There are a lot of unknowns about how Barzagli will deal with the higher expectations, pressure and overal quality of a Cl game, and for all I am concerend, he may very well turn into another Legrotaglie.

If it's Italian defenders we are talking about, at this point in time, there isn't a more promissing young (-er) defender than Barzagli. If, however, it's overall quality that we are concerned, I think there are a number of better, or at least as good and promissing, options out there.
So there's no real reason to enter a bidding war with other teams and overpay for a player just because he's Italian, which in itself will make Zamparini blow up his price for other Italian teams like Milan or Juve.

kastriot
07-01-2007, 16:44
Personally Barzagli reminds me of Leggrotaglie,at the time the same fus was made for him,and he turn to be a hug blow,barzagli seems the same,we talk to much about him,but it`s different when the expectation rise when you play for a team like Milan,Juve and I can`t remember another big team in Italy :devf: :devf: , He had a decent world cup in that single game he played though.

Pajo
07-01-2007, 16:47
25 millions!?!?!?! WTF is wrong with Palermo?? I think like zlatanov, 10 would be fine, even 15 is too much, by wow, 25!?!?! I still can't believe what I read...

mrki
07-01-2007, 17:37
Barzagli plays superb in the past 2 seasons, and the way he played in the WC was also very good. Of course he is not worth 25 mil. but 12-14 for sure. He is Italian, relatively young for a defender, and has experience. He can integrate in every team very fast.

I'd love to see Alex of PSV in our def. Immense player. better than Barzagli, Chivu, Mexes.

Galliani shoots down striker talk:

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani believes that they do not need to sign a new striker after Willy Aubameyang’s excellent performance in the Trofeo Berlusconi.

The Rossoneri defeated Juventus 3-2 on Saturday in what used to be a traditional August meeting thanks to a late goal by the 19-year-old substitute French hitman.

“Vincenzo Iaquinta? Antonio Cassano? Ronaldo? No thanks, we already have Aubameyang,” said Galliani to Milan Channel after the match.

“We will make no new signings in our striking department – if we decide we need someone else we will move the youngster to the first team,” added the official.

Milan have recently been paired with Iaquinta, who is valued at £8.5m, and reports suggest the Rossoneri turned down an offer from Real Madrid to sign both Cassano and Ronaldo.

“We have found a left-back in Leandro Grimi in January, who is sure to improve, and we are trying to bring Massimo Oddo to the San Siro, but that is where we will stop.”

Milan are waiting to hear what Marco Borriello’s fate will be, as the striker failed a doping test in November and will probably be suspended by the Disciplinary Commission.

“If Borriello will be suspended we have Aubameyang, who is the top scorer for the youth side and an excellent player,” concluded Galliani.

Oddo therefore remains the main target in the January market, as he recently confirmed that he is considering a Rossoneri offer, although his wife would prefer to remain in Rome.

It's ok for me, I think it's good we use players from our youth system. Hopefully Aubameyang can prove himself. But that said, if Oddo is our only target, then at least I hope they can get him. If Milan really want him, then they should be able to get him.

08-01-2007, 05:20
My god i can't believe on what galiani said!
All right Aubameyang is a good talent but i cant see him to help us at CL or Campionato!,Borrielo is punished,inzaghi is 33,Oliveira cant get his form yet,and gila is trying to get his form and galiani said we don't need any striker because we have Aubameyang?Then guys don't panic if we don't qualify at next round of CL,or not get the first 4 position at campionato to play CL for next year,or not win anything!I think galiani is joking all the milan fans with this statement!Its a shame!

And something last.....imagine how Seedorf will bear to play for another 5 months until May in most games at the first 11 in high natural fitness,which his role needs to have?
Seedorf can play great at first half but at the second he can't even walk,how that man will bear for another 5 months in high natural fitness?
And the best is that we are connected with so many players wich all of them are GK's,Defenders and strikers, and no one is from midfield!...............
KEEP RUNNING AS YOU CAN SEEDORF!!!!

I think all fans need to calm down. Come to bear some sense of reality people! For one thing we never ever get a good mid-season transfer signing. It does not happen! Secondly it is so obvious that we are cash strapped due to the Moggi-Poli legal actions taken against us which cost this club a lot of MONEY. Some of you must be stuck in lame world if you cannot comprehend the amount of attainer fees it costs this club for legal protection.
ALSO... all of you get this through your d@mn head!!!! Milan is not a charity or some friggin welfare program where people like Berlu throw money at. MILAN is a BUSINESS and as such must find ways as a BUSINESS to come up with its own ways as a seperate entity from BERLUSCONI to purchase players in the CALCIO mercato.
When you all can finally recognize and appreciate this "you gotta be stupid if you dont know this" FACT, maybe you all can finally shut the hell up with your "why we didnt buy??" stupid questions!

come on guys! all the time people ask for a new maldini/baresi ... to evolve friom the youth ranks and now when finally one youngster seems to get a small chance you ask for somebody else to be bought.

the only way a youth team player can get somewhere is by playing for the first team, that was 20 years ago the same as it is today. if we want a new homegrown talent to get in the first team then fan patience is vital.

Tony75... did you not read what I just posted????
Let me do it again.
Milan is not a charity or some friggin welfare program
This is the reason why we HAVE been a success since he's been on board! It is because we are not a charity or someone's welfare program!
The success of this club is due to the fact that we are not some pet dog of an owner. What we are is a BUSINESS. As a business it must be run as accordingly. Berlu is our prime investor. The best form of investment is to create a SELF SUFFICIENT money making asset. Otherwise your feeding a club in the same manner you would feed a DOG. Is that what you want Berlu to return this club to... DOG status???
I also told you as a self sufficient asset, we are cash strapped due to heavy costs outside of the game itself, namely LEGAL FEES! Anyone who owns a business can tell you Tony that a big mess in return income happens when legal things like Moggi-Poi and getting sued occur.

Fans patience will be there 4 any youngsters, but when do they get a proper chance? Never. If their not given a chance it's because Berlu & Galliani buy mediocre players like Favalli, and Ancelotti shows no faith in them either. What are the odds that Marzoratti will be loaned out again next season so we can sign 32 year old wastes of spaces?

Buy the way have we just got an option on Andrea Poli. He is only 16 years old and plays for Treviso. We weren't the only team chasing him. Inter and Roma also wanted him. He is also in the Italian U/18 national team.

Poli has already played a couple of matches for Treviso's first team.

Andrea Poli is going to play a couple of seasons in Treviso and then he will switch to Milan. He is a central/defensive midfielder with characteristics like Pirlo. Another "Regista" in the making :)

Milan abandon Oddo move
Tuesday 9 January, 2007
Adriano Galliani and Lazio patron Claudio Lotito confess that Massimo Oddo is nowhere near completing his San Siro switch.

“The negotiations for Oddo are high and dry,” conceded Milan transfer guru Galliani this evening.

“There are still a few million between our offer and the request put forward by the Biancocelesti.”

All three parties involved have made it absolutely clear that talks are on for a January move up north, with the right-back confirming he is eager to join the Rossoneri.

However, the sticking point remains Lazio’s valuation of the 30-year-old World Cup winner.

“I have never sold anyone on the cheap,” added Olimpico club President Lotito on Radio Radio.

“Milan asked us if we would talk about Oddo. Considering the player’s request that he make this move because he started his career in the Rossoneri youth system, Lazio agreed to see if there is the possibility of making his wish true.”

Yet negotiations have not gone well and recent meetings between the directors have been disappointing.

“We are friendly with Galliani, but nobody will force us to do anything we don’t want to, nor can then prevent us from taking action we see fit,” added Lotito.

“If we have the right conditions, then we will complete Oddo’s transfer. If not, then we won’t.”

Meanwhile, another Milan target seems to have hit the skids, as Ronaldo’s agent says he has no idea whether Real Madrid have offered him up for sale.

“We haven’t heard anything about these rumours,” insisted Reynaldo Pitta. “I don’t know if there is any truth in them or not, but what we do know is that Real Madrid haven’t informed us of this situation.”

It begins to look like the transfer of Gilardino, then we also found the askingprice to high, but at the end we got him, although at a highprice. Maybe the same happens now. I don't know if we should spent to much on Oddo, if they really don't want to lower the price it's better to wait until the summer and buy a young brazilian to replace Cafu.

Milan dream of Adri

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi would love to see Adriano link up with Kaka for the Rossoneri – but admits it is unlikely to ever happen.

The outspoken chief was questioned about the club’s plans for the transfer market and admitted that his wish of seeing the two Brazilian stars play together at the San Siro is unlikely to come true.

“Adriano and Kaka together at Milan? It seems an impossible dream,” said the former Prime Minister.

“It would be great to see them play in the same team, but I don’t think that will happen. Furthermore, I would never want to give the impression that we want to buy everyone on the market.”

Berlusconi also stated that the offer made to Lazio for world champion defender Massimo Oddo is adequate and that the Via Turati club is not willing to increase it.

“We made a good offer for the player, now we must just wait and see if Lazio agree. Oddo is a player of a certain age and with a past. Milan made an offer that cannot be raised.”

Vice-President Adriano Galliani and Lazio patron Claudio Lotito had admitted on Tuesday that the switch was far from being completed, as the main issue remained Lazio’s valuation of the 30-year-old.

Berlusconi keeps dreaming, without doing something. I don't care if we don't buy another player now in January, but if he keeps dreaming in the summer transfer-window too, than we have a problem.

And Beckham's transfer made Real great? You cant be serious! Clearly you guys need a lesson on some business/success concepts. Berlu though a billionaire has many priorities besides Milan. Spread the overhead costs all around his ENTIRE business empire and you'll get a clear picture at what I'm getting at. Milan can on its own enterprising pull this off without a welfare handout from its chairman every single year. We have been succesful in such way and will continue to be so.

Seriously, Adri won't leave Inter at least not now. He just started to score after 200 crazy days, partying with girls and drinking.
So, the only way him to leave Inter would require large salry (I'm not talking about the fee Milan has to pay to Inter). And I don't believe that is right, I mean, his form is still not back, and it would be gambling to try sing him. Howeve, it would be worthless...

We will only be able to buy him if he keeps struggeling. It looks now that he has refound his old form, or at least has made steps towards his old form. But if he keeps struggeling than maybe we will buy him and perhaps he becomes a new Pirlo, Seedorf...

Aparently Milan has 215 mil to spend in mercato. Mercato is separated in 2 fazes: in january Milan will only try to buy Oddo( will join us after the Lazio-Milan match) and Grimi ( dome ), to fix up the defence, and in the summer there will be reconstruction of the team.

Tuncay from Fener is blocked by Milan and "will" join us in the summer. He is a pretty good midfielder if you ask me. Like Fiore or so.
We have offered 15 mil for Pato, and will go for Roonaldinho and Buffon in the summer. Also, Zampata and Barzagli are wanted by Galliani for the defence.....

SKy says that, so.... :)

That´s a lot of money....meaning good players (world class).
Just hope its true.

I had a chance to watch Tuncay in one match, and he impressed me, plays really good, he is attacking midfielder, fast, with good dribble and shot.

If Dida doesn´t sign new deal, the best possible solution is Buffon, there´s no question there, hope he´ll rather join us than Inter.

Take your hands off these two bolded names, and take Ronaldinho !

Buffon said it 5 times after the summer that if he leaves Juve he'll go abroad, and the latest from Barzagli :




Juve pick up Bar tab Thursday 11 January, 2007

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

Palermo defender Andrea Barzagli is set to join Juventus in June, his agent insisted on Thursday.

The Rosanero has been linked with the Bianconeri for some time and rumours had suggested he was close to finalising a move for this summer.

“There is a verbal agreement between Palermo and Juventus – there’s a good chance that Barzagli will move to Turin in July,” his agent Claudio Orlandini told Radio Blu.

“Juventus have some interesting players which Palermo would be happy to take in return, such as Claudio Marchisio, Raffaele Palladino, Domenico Criscito or Paolo De Ceglie.
“I also believe that for the same reason he will command less than the £10m that he is valued at. In any case, I would exclude the possibility of a transfer in January.”

The world champion, who has been linked with a variety of clubs in the past, joined Palermo from Chievo in 2004 for £4.6m and would represent an important addition to Juve’s defensive department, already strengthened with the signing of Zdenek Grygera on Wednesday

Ronaldinho remain in Barcelona
Buffon come to Milan

this whole deal about Dida and Milan disagreeing on new contract terms is just giving Dida the most dignifying way out possible, so he doesn't look openly replaced by Gigi... Buffon family has a long story at Milan... I'm sure he will continue it...

Tony, Gigi also said that he stayed at Juve to help bring them back to serie A... otherwise, he'd be in Milan already...

11-01-2007, 18:31

He said he doesn't likes the Perdenti and what they did to Juve and his 2 scudettos he won on the pitch.
I swear he did. I have pasted that article somewhere on this topic, but i don't feel like searching for it right now.


Zlat, i'm really convinced he won't join Milan, and God forbid Inter.
I know people in general change their opinion, and football players say all kind of things...even journalist put words into their mouths.
But the case with Gigi is :

1. During Calciopolli and after the verdicts were given he said smthg like :
" I was thinking of joining Milan at the end of the season, but right now i can't leave Juve"

2. Then he said ( and still says so) how he'll certanly stay with Juve until June and then he'll decide what to do

3. Then he had few interviews where he said he's so dissapointed from the FIGC, the things that happened to his club and how bitter taste those 2 scudetti's taken from him left, that if he leaves Juve he'll leave only for a team out of Italy.

4. He did add though, that the final decission will be made with his family, eventhough his choices at the moment are Juve or abroad

5. Secco ( Moggi's successor in Juve, the GD) said in December how Juve will do everypossibile thing to keep Buffon, Camo and Trez, but if they really wanna leave, only the offers from non-Italian clubs will be concidered

6. Secco said the same thing last week

7. Buffon pointed out how he'll leave if Juve won't make a team able to fight for the Scudetto, but he'll stay if quality players come to Juve in June.

8. And another thing, that maybe goes in Milan's favour and was said for Berlusconi to hear it ( although i think he said it to Juve directors) is :
" I don't wanna play in team that will be on 12th place in the league"
If you look at the standings and see who's 12th placed atm , you'll find his words interesting :)


Of course this doesn't means Buffon won't leave Juve for an Italian club ( By Italian club read Milan, cause the "Perdenti" aren't an option while the others don't deserve Buffon) , but many things point out on him staying with Juve or going to Spain or England !

Of course, most of MM and Michael Jackson will complain for not rejuvenating the team with some kids, but i can guarantee you i'll put some remarkable performances, and i promise i'll break Materazzi's leg when we'll play Inter.
Although, the risk of scoring owngoals when we'll play Juve remains !

Tony, do you remmeber:

Buffon, "I can go anywhere, from Milan to Honolulu"

He has never said hat he will not join Milan. In fact, whenever he has been asked about his future he has uttered something about Milan.

About him not joining us last summer:

I am very sure he was simply not sold because we did not give you Abiatti. I clearly remmeber Secco saying, "Abiatti has joined Torino? Then Buffon will not join Milan."

I have a strong feeling that Buffon did not reveal his wish to join Milan because he didn't want to be treated like Zebina. As a result he stayed with Juve to show "loyalty" to Juve fans. I don't think it would have been subtle on Buffon's part to join Juve's strongest rivals just after Juve got relegated.

Even now, mid-season, he says that he cannot assure the Juve fans that he will stay with them. With Dida not signing the extension, it is just getting sure day by day that he will come to Milan in the summer of 2007.

And are you trying to suggest that Secco and Co. will resist a 35 MN pound offer for Buffon when they are in enormous debt? Juve are known for making profit by selling their players. Its a fact and they will have to sell him, just like Juve bought Nedved from a disintegrating Lazio.

Once Juve come back to Serie A, they will go in safe mode and start chopping down the salaries to finance new purchases. Do you think Buffon would want a pay cut?

Plus, he has got a lot of friends at Milan, so settling in won't be a problem. Then, I heard some where that Seredova hates Turin. Tony, give me some reasons why he will not join us?

:firedev:

Tony29.
12-01-2007, 01:36
If Buffon leaves it means opening the door for Trezeguet and Camoranesi to leave. They both wanted to leave this summer and they were forced to stay. All 3 of them leaving leaves Juve with 8-9 new players to be bought, not just 5.
And it's almost impossibile to replace them, even more if we know not many classy player would join Juve if we don't have icons like Buffon.

And Juve's financial situation isn't as bad as one may think so. While Juve was working in plus, teams like Milan, Inter, Roma and Lazio were working with 100's of Millions minuses. As a matter of fact, while Juve was selling Zidane to get Buffon, all they could have done was what Inter and Milan were doing : spending the money from taxes and making even stronger teams.
Milan and Inter had much more than the debt allowed by Figc, but Guido Rossi gave them a 70% discount of what they should have recapitalized. How convenient, huh?
Lazio arrived to have more than 120 millions of taxes not paid. Did they bankrupt? Of course not: Lotito gets to pay those money in the next *23* years and he got also a discount.

So, if Juve has similar problems they can do what Inter, Milan and Lazio did ( of course, if we're allowed by Figc).
The salary cut's you're talking about won't happen. All 5 of Buffon, Nedved, DP, Trez and Camoranesi were offered new improved contracts. If you're forced to sell them you don't offer them better contracts, do you ?

TAMOIL is another thing that made people think Juve is in deeper sh!t.
TAMOIL was a main sponsor, they withdraw and all the papers said :JUVE LOST 160 M Pounds.
Technically Juve did lose this money, but it's not like Juve had the money and now they lost them. The deal with TAMOIL was for them to pay 160 M until 2015, which means 16 M Pounds per season. They'll pay the 16 M this season, while Juve won't be getting 16 M pounds from TAMOIL every next season until 2015.
Instead, Juve will be gettin 10,11,12 M Pounds from the new sponsors - be it some car company, BWin or someone else.

So, to sumarize, money won't be a problem for keeping Buffon, and if he leaves he won't do that because Juve is forced to sell him.
The 35 M Pounds you mentioned for him won't be refused, of course. Eh, if someone offers these kind of money it will be stupid not to sell him. But i think Milan won't offer more than 20-25 M Euro, and i bet Juve won't sell him for that price.
At the end - he's under contract with Juve, so he'll have to respect that contract, just like Kaka must respect his contract and mustn't be allowed to leave Milan if Milan doesn't wants him to let go.
Gigi is under contract with Juve and he can leave only if Juve allows him to. And Juve made it clear : None of the Juve star players can leave for an Italian club !!

EDIT : Just like Zambrotta case. He prefered Milan to Barcelona. Maybe Milan would have given the 20-25 M Barcelona was giving for Zambrotta+Thuram.
Milan did offer money for Zambrotta actually.
But Juventus menagment didn't want to sell to Milan, so they sold him to someone else out of Italy prepared to give money for him.
The same will happen to Gigi. I'm sure teams from Spain or England will offer money for Buffon, and if Milan won't offer muuuuuuuch more than what Barcelona or Man Utd will do, then there's no chance Juve will sell Buffon to Milan or Inter.
Vieira and Zlatan are different cases. There wasn't another offer comming out of Italy and Juve was forced to sell them to an Italian club.

See why i think Buffon won't go to Milan or Inter ?

MILANO - Continua il braccio di ferro tra Claudio Lotito ed il Milan riguardo la cessione del capitano biancoceleste Massimo Oddo. Il patron della Lazio persiste nel rifiutare le offerte di Galliani, rilanciando di volta in volta la precedente richiesta. E intanto insiste nel diffondere dichiarazioni singolari: "Oddo non è in vendita, anche se magari lui vuole andare. La Lazio non ha mai messo in vendita Oddo. Quindi è inutile parlare di cifre, di nostre richieste e di offerte del Milan. Ha un contratto sino al 2008 e basta. Certo, se lui avesse interessi ad andarsene, cosa non da escludere secondo quanto leggo sui giornali, noi non lo incateneremmo. Serve solo un'offerta giusta. Noi non abbiamo bisogno di fare cassa. Quindi non mi va di parlare di cifre. Il problema è rimpiazzarlo a livello tecnico. Ogni giorno comunque è quello buono. Serve la volontà da parte di tutti. Oddo può anche voler andare al Milan, ma, se è per questo, io vorrei diventare Presidente della Repubblica. Ma non tutto è così semplice".

The first part is about Oddo :
Lottito persist on rejecting the offers Galliani makes for Oddo. Lottito says " Oddo is not for sale, even if he wants to go from Lazio. We have never put Oddo for sale. That's why it's useless to talk about figures, our demands, and offers from Milan. He has a contract until 2008, and that's it ! Of course, if he really wants to leave, which is the case according to what i'm reading in the papers, we won't tie him here. All it takes is the right offer - we don't need to make a big case out of it
Oddo may want to go to Milan, and i like to become the presedent of Italy. But it's not that simple "

(This was confusing article. Lotitto first says Oddo is not for sale even if he wants to leave, and then he says if Oddo really wants to leave they won't put him in chains in order to keep him :rolleyes: )


The second part is about Cassano :
Galliani said " we wanted Cassano but Ancelotti said NO.
We had an idea about getting Cassano, but every purchase is made with a common agreement between the society and the manager. In this case we couldn't find an agreement "

Milan make Beckham revelation

Milan chief officer Adriano Galliani has revealed the club would have signed David Beckham if he had decided to remain in Europe, but the Rossoneri will not be pursuing their interest in his Real Madrid team-mate Ronaldo.

Milan are long-term admirers of the former England captain, who opted to begin a fresh chapter of his career in America's MLS with LA Galaxy.

"Beckham? There was the possibility that he would come to Milan," declared Galliani.

"Now we can say it since he has decided to go to Los Angeles from next season.

"If he had remained in Europe, he would have come to Milan."

Ronaldo is also unsettled at the Bernabeu but Milan will not be the former Internazionale attacker's next destination.

"We have decided not to move for a forward since, lately, we play with one single attacker," he added to gazzetta.it.

This news surprises me. But I am happy it didn't become reality. We don't need Beckham. We have Gattuso and Brocchi (also Gourcuff) who play excellent at RM, they are hard workers who also can defend. Becks :rollani: not, the only thing we could use are his great crosses but we have Pirlo for that.

I think Galliani is bullsh!ting about Becks again. Remember what he said about Henry? "Had he left Arsenal, he would have joined us, not Barca." So far I haven't heard anybody else confirm (even mention!) it. Not Henry, not Arsenal, not Barcelona. It was just Galliani playing (talking) solo. :yuck:

Now he did it again to Becks. :tong: I think he is just pathetic. He probably should say: "We have talked Zidane out of retirement and he was on the way to join us. Had Merdarazzi not clashed with him, Zidane would be playing in red and black now." Wouldn't that be better than Becks? :1ang:

Oddo and Iaquinta await Milan

Milan’s bids for Massimo Oddo and Vincenzo Iaquinta are in trouble, but not over, believes the Lazio defender.

“I am following with interest the evolution of these negotiations between the two clubs,” commented Oddo of his long-running tug of war.


“I know that they have been talking to each other for a while and are working towards finding a solution. I hope they can sort everything out as soon as possible.”


The right-back has made it abundantly clear he wants a January move to Milan, where he started his career in their youth system, but the switch has stalled over Lazio’s demands.


“In the meantime, I will give my support to the team with a professional approach, which I have never shied away from.”


Biancocelesti President Claudio Lotito also seemed to suggest the talks with Milan were far from over.


“Oddo’s contract expires in 2008 and that is it. Of course, if he wanted to leave, and this is an option from what I read, we would not block him. We would only need the right offer to let him go,” stated the patron.


Meanwhile, another of the Rossoneri’s long-running transfer sagas could find a light at the end of the tunnel.


World Cup winning striker Iaquinta has been on their wish list for several months and, according to Udinese director general Roberto Zanzi, it’s a deal that could happen soon.


“There is so much talk of Iaquinta, but so far we haven’t received an offer that would convince us to release him in January,” he told Teleradiostereo.


“Milan like him, but there are no talks on right now. We wouldn’t be swayed by a £7m bid, but if £10m were to be proposed, then that would be a different matter.”


Nonetheless, Zanzi urged the Rossoneri to hurry up and make their move if they wanted the hitman mid-season.


“Clearly, an offer for Iaquinta towards the end of the month would probably be rejected, because if Vincenzo leaves then we need time to find an adequate replacement.”

If it makes you feel little better, there are general directors much cheaper than Galliani, and they work for Juventus.
My beloved Secco has jus signed Hasan Salihamidzic for free. This is the second free transfer Juve made in last 7 days.
Grygera was a good deal, since Nedved says he's the best european RB atm, and since all the guys from Holland who had the chance to watch him said he's a perfect solution for Juve...but why the hell Salihamidzic ???
Cheap cheap cheap Juve :5milan:

You at least have rumours with Ronaldinho and with big money involved. All Juve does are free transfers from flee market.
And they didn't even get them now, and paid some 500 000 euro for them. Nooo, they get them for free in June !!!

there is nothing wrong in what Juve are doing. The team have lost lots of money with this demotion to Serie B after missing on huge financial injections from Tamoil and TV rights, ticket sales, legal fees, etc, etc ... and clubs are actually run with a plan that goes several years ahead in time, so it's not much of an argument to say that this is money Juve never had to begin with ;) ... blows like these always hurt you, and hurt you bad.

the only way for Juve to make some big-name transfers, at least in the next several years, would be if the Agnielis come on a white horse and pay it out of their pockets, something they haven't been doing for some time now so, I would expect certain reluctance and cheapness on their side as well.

True, the club will sign some new sponsor deals once they are back in Serie A but don't forget that this money will have to be used to plug lots of financial holes left as a result of calciopolli and the Serie B demotion, so a very small portion of that money will go into investing in famous/promising and expensive players ... so, it would be up to the Alkans and such to cover the difference.

All in all, the next 2-3 years at least, the club will take to raise itself on it's feet but if they want big transfers, Juve will have to rely on "family" money - and by big, I mean nothing like 30-40 mil for a single player but more like 10 mil or so.
Of course, another "source" of cash would be the sales of players like buffon and Trez - Juve's only valuable assetts left - but that's exactly what the team wants to prevent by getting new, good players and building a new squad from the ground up.

Given the big number of players they would have to acquire - i would guess between 5-10 but closer to 10 - some of these players would have to be free agents, so that there is more money left for those "targets" that aren't available for free. And as it often happens with free agents, some of them won't be long term solutions (Salihamidzich is already 30) but still you are getting a vry good player with lots of experience for absolutely free, while a younger player of similar quality would cost you guys a good 10-15 mil our there.

i haven't seen this Faty guy play but Grygera and Hasan are two players I would have loved to see at Milan, especially considering they are free agents, in place of players like Cafu, Simic, Favalli, Billy etc, who would probably be moving on or retiring at the end of this year.

P.S. As for Grygera, calling him the best RB in Europe is understandable when it comes from a fellow Czech teammate but that's pushing it. Still, he is a very capable RB but the best thing about grygera is his versatility - he can play anywhere in midfield and defence, center or on the sides, and copes very, very well with all these tasks.
he's not the best or close to the best players in any of these positions but in all of them he is a player the coach can count on without worries and players like that are a true treasure for their teams ;)

But i have the right to be angry, subjective, pissed off for what the relegation did to Juve and the right to be unreasonable !

Faty ( France u-21 captain) , Grygera ( Czech NT player), Braco Salihamidzic ( experienced, fast, fighter) and Mavuba ( Plattini's and Deschamps' favourite) may be useful and will be useful. I'm aware Juve can't give 60 M Euro for a CD, RB, RBM and DMC , but i i can always use the forums to show my frustration, eventhough i know things are as you described them in your post. :) :)

Anyway, did you and me had a 200 dollars bet that Lazio will wait until January 21st to sell Oddo to Milan, or we were only discussing it, without money involved ?

there is still a whole week left till then, so let's wait - there are some new meetings scheduled between Lazio and Milan for next week.
Your argument for the deal being closed only after 21st was mostly about Lotito taking his time to see if Lazio would be a viable candidate for CL spot. I, on the other hand, think that if the deal is indeed closed only after the 21st, it would be mostly because Lotito is hoping that, with the transfer deadline closing in, Milan would get desparate and would raise the ante and meet his a little ridiculous demands for a 30 yo player ... and that's part, a major one, of nrgotiations, pure and simple.

P.S. And no, we never talked about money, although I would be changing this statement if the deal is indeed closed next week, as I expect :devf:

Im also sure that Lazio will sell Oddo after Lazio - Milan game. And that will be it for our mercato....

But listen to this...Carlo says Cassano is a good player but we dont need THAT KIND OF A PLAYER? That is EXACTLY the kind of a player that we do need. He also says Beckham would always play in his linepu, and that Ronaldo's possible transfer can wait untill the summer. So, he wants Ronaldo and Beckham, 30 year old, finished players, but not Cassano? I really hate the fact he is still Milans coach....

P.S. Tony, dont worry about Gigi, Amelia is ok keeper for Juve :)

Honestly what should Carlo say about why Milan isn't going for cassano? The truth? The truth is that Cassano is a spoiled brat that will be sidelined in every decen team that expects its players to respect their teammates, coaching staff, and management. is this what Carlo should say really???? The coach is just being politically correct by saying that we don't need that type of player ... and in a way he's right if by "this type of player" he means a spoiled crybaby that always creates issues wherever he goes.

regarding Ronaldo, what he said is that there is lots of time till june and the team is now only concerned with the january transfer market ... nothing more specific about whether we want ronaldo or not ... actually, Galliani put it plain and simple yesterday - "No, Milan is not interested in Ronaldo and there is no negotiation going on".
Also, Real are believed to be in a hurry to get rid of ronaldo as soon as possible i.e. in the January transfer market

what carlo said about beckham is that he, as a former midfielder himself, has always like beckham and if he were to play for Milan. beckham would have been used in midfield - probably what carlo means is that he wouldn't have used him as a winger. What he goes on to say however is that he and the Milan management have never directly spoken about/discussed Beckham as transfer target, same goes for Trezeguet, another player carlo speaks well of.

@ Tony29...

you guys are linked with the most promisin' Italian defender in Barzagli despite bein' in Serie B & you are complainin'? we at Milan have to deal with gettin' an unknown in Grimi... a washed-up veteran in Favalli... an overpriced soon to be veteran in Oddo... and we are supposedly chasin' a top four finish in Serie A as well as still bein' in the CL...

personally with Janku bein' Czech... i'm surprised we didn't even attempt to try for a free Grygera...

I have to say that, with cafu soon to be gone, I am also surprised by Milan not going for Grygera, especially given he is a EU player, who was available for free.
Even if we do get Oddo, a versatile and quality player like Grygera is never a surplus for any team.

zZ[-_-]Zz
13-01-2007, 11:27
yeah... exactly what i think... we have a need for a RB... and Grygera comes free... what we are always interested in... but instead we are havin' to deal with play-hard Lazio for an overpriced Oddo whose time isn't exactly very long considerin' his age... even if we get Oddo... gettin' Grygera wouldn't be pointless considerin' his versatility...

Tony29.
13-01-2007, 13:58
Maybe you would have gone after him if Galliani didn't know that he "is" Juve player, since last summer.
Juve almost bought him for some 6-7 M EURO but then the Calciopolli verdicts came, and Juve made a deal with Grygera to wait until Juve's back in A.
I guess Galliani knew all this and that's why he didn't go after the Czech.
Although, Ajax as a third part in this deal could have stopped Grygera from going to Juve if Milan made a money offer now in January.

Inter getting involved and showing interess in Grygera speed up the process and that's why Juve secured him in January allready.

Plus, if Milan is indeed interested in Buffon, they would have made that purchase impossibile if they took Grygera in front of Juve's nose !

13-01-2007, 14:19
Tony! Why are you freaking out? :D Maybe its because you know it in your heart that Buffon's career at Juve is soon going to end. Trust me, once you come back to Serie A, he will be a luxury for you as you won't need to compete for the top place.

One more thing, how much debt are Juve in? I think it is 133 MN Euros. Do you think that a person like Secco can resist 35 MN pound deal? No. No way! Juve will resist the offer in the beginning but will eventually succumb to the pressure.

zlatanov
13-01-2007, 14:22
well, if it's gonna take 35 mil BP to get Buffon, I for one hope Milan aint the club making that offer. There is only one keeper out there who can make up for Dida' sloss and that's Buffon but his realistic price is somewhere between 20 and 30 mil euros ... and even that's pushing it.

13-01-2007, 14:30
There will be a lot of club competing for his signature. GKs like him come once in a decade and no one would want to miss out on an opportunity like that. Even Arsenal will give us strong competition for his signature. So, I guess at the end the winning bid will be some where between 30 - 35 mn BP.

That's it Rahul.
I never said he won't leave Juve, cause there are big chances he will.
All my points were about him not joining Milan or Inter.
And if he does joins Milan or Inter, he'll do that only for some huge money offer.
That's why, in my previous post about Buffon, i said if Milan offers 35 M Pounds he'll certanly join them.
But i don't see your team making such unbelievable offer ( Juve bought him for 40 M Euro, which is around 26.5 M Pounds ) and i don't think Milan will make much bigger offer than some non-Italian teams.
That's why i don't see him in Milan ! ( even if he begs Juve to sell him to Milan, Juve won't do that if Milan's offer isn't much bigger than some potential offer from Barcelona...)

Juventus just had their first ever loss in Serie B today, and buffon was injured.
You forgot to add it was Mantova who has beaten Juve.
Mantova !!!!! :dstup:
Although, i expected this suprise when i saw the team. Midfield consisted of Zalayeta ( ????? ) , Paro, Marchisio ( who the hell ?????) and Piccolo ( first time i heard about him... and his original position is defender ).

On top of it Buffon got an injury and he joined the 3 guys injured on Milan-Juve match ( Chiellini, Boumsong and Palladino) , Zanetti who got injured few days ago, and the other 5 injured players we have. Nedved is suspended and he was also out, while Camoranesi just recovered from an injury and played in last 20 minutes only.

I don't know why do Juve players get injured so easily. Maybe they aren't well prepared physically, maybe they are getting beaten like hell, or maybe and probably both.
But it's a shame to see stars like Del Piero,Trezeguet, Buffon or Nedved not being protected by the refs. All of them missed many matches due injuries, and the guys who injured them didn't get even a yellow card.

You'll laugh at this, but i think serie B is a much tougher league than serie A !

That's because he's the almighty Ronaldinho...who makes no mistakes, has magical boots and his presence alone makes his team win by default. All his faults are forgotten when he woos the crowd with a 'marvelous' backheel flick when a simple pass would have sufficed. The praise of 2 seasons ago got to his head and he's nothing like what he used to be. But that's for another thread...

13-01-2007, 20:24
Tony, I wouldnt be too unhappy with Juve's transfer policy if I were you. It is incredible how you guys managed to keep so many stars despite playing in serie b. Imagine having the best GK in the world, Nedved, Trez, Camo, Del Piero in serie b!!! I can assure you if Milan were to have gone down, we would have Kalac in goal, Billy and Paolo in defence and Boriello in attack---the rest may very well have bailed.

Secondly, Juve's transfer policy and PLAN once they return to serie a has already started. They've already picked up some promising players (all in their 20's which these days at Milan is unheard of :)) and have concrete plans to reinforce the squad in the long run. You've got an excellent manager and if all goes to plan, Juve will again be a dominant force in the not too distant future.

Contrast that with our transfer policy. No long term vision, only short term solutions. No correction of current problems, only denying that they exist. Going after 30 year old players for virtually all positions---I mean if we dont get Oddo, then what, what's plan b, Cafu for another five years? At least one gets a sense as to where Juve will be in the next five years and who their main protagonists might be. But as for Milan, I dont have a clue. When Seedorf, Pirlo, Gattuso, Paolo, Janku, Pippo retire---who will take their places? We should be grooming some replacements now, rather than picking up band aids like Favalli.

They didn't give up in defence, they went al out attack. Suffice to say their defence even with players back was a shambles. I don't want Rijkaard. read an interview where he said he doesn't coach the players when they have the ball as they are all so good. He just does organisational work on pressure and defending. Seriously that's not good enough for Milan unless we had Ronaldinho, and a guaranteed goal machine like Eto'o.

AC Milan set to land Barcelona fullback Belletti
tribalfooball.com - January 14, 2007

Barcelona fullback Julio Belletti is moving to AC Milan at the end of this season.
DiarioSport says Barca have decided to hand the Brazilian a free transfer in June, when he will sign a four-year deal with Italian giants Milan.

Belletti's present Barca deal expires in June, 2008 and his Milan agreement - at £1.5 million-a-year - is double what he is earning at the Nou Camp.

14-01-2007, 20:45
Agreed peters. It's become a habit of our management now to boast about players who would definitely have signed for us had they not gone elsewhere, rather than do their jobs and actually SIGN players!!

I knew Galliani would come out and say this about Beckham. Whether it is true or not, is another matter. In the end of the day, nobody cares anyways, I dont know who he's trying to impress. Remember when Figo signed for RM---he said exactly the same thing--that Figo was just about to sign for us when RM stepped in. What about Henry this past summer? As far as I am concerned his transfer to us was never even on the cards, it was Barca who were seriously after him...

Milan Ready $15 Million Bid For Duck?

Porto Alegre’s latest sensation, Internacional striker Alexandre Pato, appears to be in the crosshairs of Italian giants AC Milan.


According to information published in both Brazil and Italy the Rossoneri could be willing to invest $15 million in the youngster.


A Milan spotter covering the current South American Under-20 tournament in Paraguay has wired home highly favourable reports on the 17 year-old Brazilian.

Pato (‘Duck’ due to his home town of Pato Branco; ‘White Duck’) came to prominence just before the recent FIFA CWC win.

The Colorado club are looking at Dagoberto (Atlético-PR) or ex-local lad Nilmar, currently in a legal wrangle with Corinthians, to fill any resulting gap if the Brazilians respond favourably to an offer. AC Milan have confirmed that they are interested in the player, but…

"We are following him with interest, after the final with Barcelona we will decide about moving for him”, commented Umberto Gandini, the Rossoneri sporting director in Japan before Xmas.

The same source repeated the budding interest recently but added a caveat that “the only problem is that the boy does not have a European passport." Is it worth making space at Milan for a Duck?

i think he would be well worth the money!

Spinelli slams Amelia! Monday 15 January, 2007
-- Channel 4
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Livorno President Aldo Spinelli has hit out at Marco Amelia after his comments following the dismissal of Coach Daniele Arrigoni. “I want to sell him,” he stated.

The outspoken chief sacked the tactician after the 5-1 hammering against Atalanta on Sunday, causing the entire team’s furious reaction.

Captain Cristiano Lucarelli stated that he supported the ex-Cagliari boss and goalkeeper Amelia confirmed that his teammates wanted Arrigoni to stay.

“Amelia has a sharp tongue, like all Romans,” said Spinelli in an interview to GR Parlamento. “I hope I will be able to sell him in January, otherwise he will sit on the bench.

“I tried to teach him good manners, but he ended on the bench in every club he played for. I hope he immediately finds a new outfit.”

Spinelli, whose side is only four points shy of the Champions League spots, also replied to Lucarelli, who hinted that he might take drastic measures if the situation does not improve.

“He is the captain, but if the team wanted to save Arrigoni they should have all played better – words mean nothing now. In any case, Lucarelli is contracted for another five years.”

The President will meet with the board of directors on Monday, but is set to confirm his decision.

“I do not believe I will change my mind, we earned three points in eight matches with a 26-man squad. We have no excuses for yesterday, we either failed the preparation or the formation.”

Bortolo Mutti and Serse Cosmi are both being paired with the Tuscan minnows, although it seems that the latter’s financial requests might be considered excessive by the outfit.

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

If they want to sell, we should try and buy! Athough Belusconi loves Buffon, we will not win a bidding war against Inter....

Well..Dida let in four against Depor with our world class defense in front of him. Let in three against Liverpool in less than 10 minutes.

It's very much about defense, also.

So much praised Buffon, who's really the best one out there, owes big part of his success to the defenders in front of him.

He had Cannavaro and Thuram in Parma. He had the same duo together with Zambrotta in Juve, and he has Cannavaro-Nesta in the National Team.
But when he had old Ferrara and Montero, mistake prone Legrotiagllie and in bad form Iuliano, he conceded more than 60 goals in total in season 2003/04, which is 20-25 goals more than he was conceding every other season before and after.

True, and he's out two months I believe, with Dida not match fit yet, that leaves us with only Fiori as first keeper and the Primavera keeper as a reserve, Fiori will start thursday in our goal against Arezzo in the Coppa.

Bad luck again, and I fear that we will buy Amelia now, a keeper I find the most overrated in Serie A, he had one good season but this season he's letting goals in like hell.

Livorno knows you need a keeper and they'll try to sell Amelia to you for a much higher price than the price Juve will "pay" for him when he'll be included in the possibile transfer of Buffon to Milan.

And i doubt you'll see a Juve player going to Milan or vice versa. Even Galliani said it himself ;)

But you can hope !

Tony29.
16-01-2007, 07:52
And seriously.... from Galliani's words i can see that not many things have changed in Juve-Milan relations. They aren't playing dirty one with another, and they aren't going after the same players.
In the past there wasn't a case of a star being sold to Milan ( or from Milan to Juve) for money + average player.
It was always Star for money.
Baggio, Davids, Inzaghi !

So if Buffon goes to Milan it will happen for big sum of cash only.
The only exchange deal i can see is if Buffon goes to Milan and one of Milan's star players goes the other way ( Pirlo, Nesta, Gattuso, Gilardino).

mrki
16-01-2007, 08:06
Pirlo, Nesta, Gattuso, Gila....if we do that we are insane, proven!
I really think there is a lot of cgance that Milan signs Buffon in the summer for some big money which Juve will use to sign 2 or 3 class young players. I have to say I would rather keep Dida for another 2 years and block some promisling keeper and reconstruct our aging team then to pay 35 mil for Gigi. We need more than a keeper, actually, a keeper is the last thing we need. Just pay Dida his money and we are ok. If not, Akinfeev is good, Amelia is OK, that young Dutch keeper from Newcastle is supertalented and so on...

Don't know how reliable this source is, but he was brilliant against us this season.

It probably is true because Kalac got injured. Storari is not bad, i like him. When he's good he's great but when he's bad...... He is very inconsistent, but having Storari as a third keeper is absolutely great. Even having him as a 2nd keeper is great! But as a first-keeper, no way.

He was excellent against everyone this season !
He's perfect for second choice keeper.
