MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI has asked for some reinforcements but Berlusconi has reportedly said Max goes to Roma.
Milan have already begun the preparations for the next season with Riccardo Saponara signed and with Andrea Poli reportedly agreeing personal terms and Milan have more names in their notebook although they’ll wait for Sunday first.
The Rossoneri will visit Siena on Sunday night and only after this match they’ll know if they’re in the Champions League next season or not. In any case, Milan are currently thinking about reinforcements for the elite European club competition.
According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, there was a long meeting at Stadio San Siro yesterday between Massimiliano Allegri, Adriano Galliani, Barbara Berlusconi, Ariedo Braida and some other Milan executives and it appears that Allegri has asked for reinforcements and some guarantees. Antonio Conte did the same thing with Juventus this week.
Gazzetta reports that at the top of Allegri’s wishlist there is Lazio’s midfielder Hernanes (27). Allegri is believed to has asked Galliani and the others for already-established good players along with some youngsters and Hernanes’ name fits the bill. Lazio apparently want €30m but with Hernanes’ contract expiring in two years, Milan could work out a deal. Torino’s Alessio Cerci (25), who is co-owned by Fior, is also on Allegri’s radar. Galliani has admitted a winger “wouldn’t be bad”.
Josip Ilicic (25), who will certainly leave the relegated Palermo, is another player Allegri is interested in. Gokhan Inler (28) of Napoli appears to be a target as well and there are suggestions that he could be exchanged with Antonio Nocerino (28) who has barely played this season. Cagliari’s left-back Danilo Fernando Avelar (23) is also on the list of Massimiliano.
Allegri has made demands but it isn’t sure he’ll stay. Silvio Berlusconi reportedly said last night: “Allegri will go to Roma. The announcement will come after the Siena game.” The press claims he joked, but there’s a grain of truth in every joke…
