I'm not really surprised that we're not going after Deulofeu. We have different coach now and the next ( sorry but Rino won't lead us next season IMO) may not want him. I mean if Conte , Sarri , Ancelotti or recently linked Gasperini come and take over next season, I don't believe any of them would have a use for him. I like Geri but seems we will make do with what we have until next season.
Also, no surprise that Udinese probably won't sell JAnkto now unless they get some ridiculous EPL offer.
I like the links to Maroni and also Lincoln and hope we can obtain both or at least options on both.
"If Fassone and Mirabelli call me to go to Milan I would have no problems. I work well with everyone and I have no problem with the colour."
"Many signings in the summer? I say that Milan bought good players. For the leap of the quality to happen you need 2-3 players of great value. But it is not easy to convince these players to come to Italy and they will cost you a lot."
"I worked well with Fassone at Inter. In fact I think Inter's biggest mistake to let him leave, he is a competent and good person. In our first year we did good; finished in fourth place which is right now equivalent to Champions League football."
"We will not do anything in the incoming mercato [in January], take this from me as official information. There could be some movement for outgoing players, but small things."
"A vice Kessie? The reasoning is there, but let me ask you: after signing 11 players, are we sure that signing a 12th would be the right choice?"
"In the summer there was an important transfer campaign but I do not miss it, there is time for everything. Today I think the solution is already at home. For example Montolivo. Our imperative is the enhancement of the existing squad."
I have a feeling that Mirabelli has to say this PR crap. There's no reasoning in the world that could rule out Deu from a tactical stand point. None. Our winter market is clearly dependent upon withheld economic considerations. 3rd will be impossible if we don't sell and spend this month.
