Milan to invest €10m in defender


AC MILAN are ready to make a big buy in January according il Corriere dello Sport.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the Rossoneri have increased their revenue by 20 per cent due to the new sponsorship deal with infront, and they are set to spend some of this money in January.

Massimiliano Allegri’s No. 1 concern is the defense, and Milan, who have around €10 million to spend, would buy a center-back or a fullback.

Milan set for Bonera / Oddo-Grosso swap?

Milan could go for PSG promising center-back Mamadou Sakho (20) or Cagliari’s Michele Canini (25). Cagliari Chairman, Massimo Cellino would agree to give Canini to Milan, in exchange for the second half of the card of Davide Astori.

However, the most preferred option is Olympique Lyonnais’ left-back Aly Cissokho (23). The Frenchman was very close to sign at Milan in the summer of 2009 but the move stumbled, and now Milan want him after a great season with OL.

Meanwhile, Juventus, according to Tuttosport, are interested in signing one of Daniele Bonera (29) or Mario Yepes (34) in the winter transfer market.

well Sissoko is good news for Milan. I hope the deal goes 2ru.


benoit tremoulinas should cost around 10 mil and he isn’t cup tied like cissokho he very solid and versatile has amazing crosses,speed and dribbling skills , but if milan want cissohko why not swap flamini and then buy sakho with the 10 mil he will be the best cb in france , canini he’s just another bonera.


if cissokho become rossonero,i think no wingers can challenge friend is a manchester united fan.he kept insult milan leftback(favalli) last season when milan vs mu.because when valencia came off the bench,he crossed and rooney scored.favalli just cannot handle him.and he always proud with his winger(pjs,valencia,nani,giggs).i think nobody can compete with cissoko.he just strong man and milan needs him.i hope cissokho join milan and manchester united to face milan again this season.let see nani or valencia vs cissokho.i don’t have faith in antonini.


What is wrong with our defensive back ups? Onyewu had a great world cup for USA, for me was one of the the better performing defenders of the tournaemtn. Montelongo is a RB who apparently has Man Utd’s interest, and we know Man Utd do not show interest in flops, but we have not seen any game time from him. Papastathopoulos has never been given much of a chance. We have Albertazzi who has been solid for the Primavera and Azzurini. Why doesn’t Allegri use what he has got first instead of throwing money away. This is why Sacchi &… Read more »


The way Milan are rumoured in the transfer market doesnt look good on the face of Allegri, If he is a good coach he must utilize the resources he has and then if they are not good should ask the management for replacements, Allegri is as good a jerk like Mourinho , the first thing he does his buy the players he likes and does he care about money , hell no!!!and why Milan all of a sudden are like this in the market,last season they could have done such a rucus. we would have been kings of kings by… Read more »

Hope long milan ddnt throw money for old defender, I think its better like this.
But I miss a young talented who came from youth team and became a star just like maldini.


cissokho is a must have…. plzzz let this happen


i agree we have some good centre defenders, like onyewu and Sokratis. But I still want Cissokho. we need a fullback.


Anthoney if you thought Onyewu was one of the better CB’s in the WC you must have been watching a different WC than I. Also than Bob Bradley, since he benched him for his poor, no make that awful play. He is slow, can’t jump and has no idea where to be on the field. In short he is completely worthless. And as for Man U not spending foolishly, what do you call the signing of Bebe? Aly Cissokho is a very good player and I would always like him in my squad, but Milan need cover at Center Back… Read more »


milan have sokratis/onyewu to utilise 4defence. better concentrate first on a class playmaker


out of devito Santa and montelongo at least one Gould turn out good with zambrottas guidance. start giving them minutes at the end of them and also buy this guys and we will be fine


We have some good wing backs but in total they can’t cover 2 wings. Cissokho would be a great buy as he’s solid, quick, and good on offense. Also he’s very consistent. If not Cissokho then i would go for Felipe Luis who’s also very good. Tremoulounias isn’t bad either.


Again….What about De Vito?


Why we dont make an offer to Lyon Antonini+ 5mln for Cissokho. And we sell Bonnera to Spurs for 5mln and plus our 5mln and make 10mln offer for Jao Miranda or another center back.


Mexes or David Luiz, and Bale
