Milan Arrivals and Departures
As the 2019 January transfer window opens in a couple of weeks, we’d expect to see a flurry of activities from the Rossoneri as they seek to reinforce their team.
Now, with the increasing injuries and fitness woes suffered by Gattuso’s men, the club is even under more pressure to ensure new faces come in to beef up the weak team.
Here’s a link https://www.acmilan.com/en/transfer-market to read up on the status of your favorite players, learn more about AC Milan’s transfer news, and see who’s leaving the team in January.
Also, if the San Siro side is serious about mounting a rigorous campaign to at least return to Europe; then a number of positions in the team need to be strengthened.
Well, as it turned out that’s exactly what the Leonardo led management is set to do. However, to have what would be considered a successful transfer window while still staying on the safe side of the fair play rules – a couple of players would have to leave the team.
It’s unsurprising though, as the transfer window approaches, news and rumors are flying around about the possible new arrivals and departures from San Siro.
Aside from the well-publicized possible return of Zlatan to San Siro, signing of Flamengo playmaker, Paqueta, and the long-talked switch of Fabregas from Chelsea to the Italian giants a move that would really be a shocker for the Rossoneri this transfer window is the return of Balotelli to Serie A.
According to a report published on Sport Mediaset, Mario Balotelli could make a shocking return to the Serie A giants as early as in January, if talks with Ibra fail through.
Reports emerging from his camp says Mino Raiola, Mario’s agent, is offering the player to AC Milan.
Remember, Balotelli has played for both Inter and Milan in the past; he would readapt quickly to the league; however, the only snag is, would Nice, release their star man before the end of his contract?
For one, he has scored over 40 goals since coming to the French Ligue and has proven a great asset albeit an inconsistent one, as he hasn’t found the net this season.
Though, feelers from Nice indicates that they might be willing to sell him at the right price. And also for fear of not getting anything if they allow Mario to see out his contract with them.
Aaron Ramsey, the Welshman midfield maestro, would be a surprise scoop for the Rossoneri in the January window. Considering his current contract situation at Arsenal one gets the feeling he wants to leave, even though he has featured prominently in Unai Emery’s plan this season.
Before the sacking of Jose Mourinho from his post as Man. United manager earlier in the week, Eric Bailey was bookmakers’ favorite to leave the Red Devils.
Following his 2016 big money move to Old Trafford and a successful first year in the team, he was completely frozen out with barely play time.
However, with the change in the gaffer, his fortune might change in. In the meantime, he’s someone the Rossoneri would like to keep a tab on to monitor his situation. He would have made a strong addition to the unreliably CB position.
