  1. We have too many players… we don’t need Zaccardo, Didac, Strasser, Traore and 1 less forward… if we get rid of these excess players then we free up money to get better players!

    • ur right cuz galliani has said that for this season 25 players are enough so the team has 32 players which means that 7 or more will go (including any transfer)…and i hope that amelia,zaccardo,didac,antonini,noce,oduamadi,strasser,beretta will go 😛 ..btw guys i will be so much statisfied seeing vergara playin’ with nr.33

    • keeo Zaccardo as back up. we don’t have solid one and he is experienced defender. He didn’t even get chance to prove his worth.

  2. Niang from 19 to 78 ? wtf ? 😀
    Vergara chose Thiago Silva’s 33 🙂

    Players we don’t need and must leave ! : Antonini, Bonera, Vila, Zaccardo, Nocerino, Strasser, Traore, Oduamadi is already on loand at Empoli and Beretta has to go on loan too.
    If we get rid of these, we could make around 25 millions and could buy 2-3 good players like Ljajic – 8 millions, Honda – 4 millions and Eriksen – 13 millions !

  3. Dis are temporary numbers nt permanent ones for some , so till d transfer period is over we still nt certain who is wearing wäh number ……

  4. Nocerino giving out the legendary Gattuso’s No8 jersey is an indication of no commitment and exit sign because he was so proud and motivated taking in from the legend, Nocerino will leave as confirmed by his agent some days ago. Zaccardo, Didac, Strasser, Beretta, Oduamadi (on his was to Brecia already) and Strasser will all leave i guess, so permanently and some on loan. Traore prefers to earn 600k on bench without playing so i rule out his exit unless someone is ready to offer his excess as does Milan. At least 4 will leave starting with Oduamadi to Brecia (almost done) and if someone leaves?……

  5. Yeah, the numbers can still change until the start of the season, these are not necessarily permanent. But out of this list you can see the players who should leave, whether it’s permanent or on loan, I bet you guys can figure out which players should leave on a permanent or a temporary basis:
    Traoré, Strasser, Didac, Beretta, Zaccardo and Oduamadi.
    Then you have Urby, Noce and Antonini who might leave.
    There you have 9 players who can possibly leave, even though I doubt all of them will leave… If six of these players leave it will open up space for new players and it will be a huge weight lifted from our wage roll.
    Honda and a new top class centre back should come in, no matter the outcome. The sooner we start selling, the better. I feel bad for saying this, but some of these players simply are not Milan quality.

  6. We can’t buy all the players linked to Milan the list is too long. Just wait for official reports people, rumours will unsettle yo mind.

    Now where is the Eriksen story come from? He probably cost around 20m, that is not our language these days. That kind of money will be put on defenders.

    • there was a recent rumor regarding Eriksen and Milan for 13-16 millions with a 4-year contract of 2 millions a year…
      But I think it’s somebody’s dream than reality…

  7. Guys im from Norway, i read the danish newspaper…

    A source close to Eriksen said that Eriksen really wants to come to Milan…

    Eriksen, Honda Sakho/Astori…

    Come on Galliani you are our Messi.. Show them how this game is played..

    Napoli has agreed 40 mill for Higuain, thats double the price i would pay…

    Make me happy Uncle Fester… I love your bald face..

  8. My squad for tommorow: Abbiati Abate—Mexes—Zapata—Descig/Constant Monty—De Jong—Prince Saponara Robinho————Elsharawy Subs: Vergara, Zaccardo, Poli, Nocerino, Muntari, Cristante, Petagna, Niang, Ballo if available

    • Only Abate has returned from international duty, the other players will return on the 24th. And I doubt Abate will play so soon even though I’d like to see him play now.
      It will be interesting to see Poli and Saponara play though.

  9. I really like milan.can u imagine i always check the internet to find out the players milan have sign and it continues proving futile,what i see is napoli,fiorentina and roma only doing the signings so what i ask myself is can my darling milan find a place in the top 3,i cant even come out boldly and say am a milan fan anymore.galliani cant u see we need a natural left back and much creativity in midfield like modric,for fw i think (niang and el shaw )have great future with the help of balo.i must also say i like the way galliani is developing the academy.we need a team that can play for 10yrs.
