Official: Thiago Silva signs contract extension until 2016; Van Bommel and Roma stay until 2012

94

THIAGO SILVA has signed a new, long-term deal while Mark van Bommel and Flavio Roma are staying.

Good news at Milan as Brazilian center back Thiago Silva (26) has signed today a contract extension until 2016, possibly with improved conditions following his excellent performances this term.

Silva, who won the Gentleman award last night, has played an extraordinary season alongside Alessandro Nesta and is one of the main reasons why Milan’s defense is the best in the league.

Milan: “No Pastore plans”
Seedorf met Botafogo in 4-hour meeting

Mark van Bommel (34) and Flavio Roma (36) are also staying at Milan. The two players had expiring contracts but have put pen to paper and are set to stay in Red & Black for another year.

The Dutchman midfielder proved to be an important part of Massimiliano Allegri’s Milan while Roma still offers a good alternative to the goalkeeper and is staying despite playing very little.

Clarence Seedorf also had a meeting with Milan today. After the appointment he said “It’s alright.” The next meeting takes place next week. Tomorrow, Massimo Ambrosini meets with the management.

Excellent news. Van Bommel renewing was needed. I’m glad he will stay an additional season.

And renewing Thiago Silva is basically telling other teams hands off our key player.

Yeeeeeey! (= Perfect so far, Silva is untouchable… Bommel is most defiitly needed.. Now, give us Asamoah, Lamela, Lazzari, Marchetti and then we´re fine!

lol ppl like him who say lazzari and poli only say it because they heard others say it. Their lifes are like domino, one fall all fall. Lazzari KNEW allegri wanted him at milan, and therefore he KNEW he had to put in a extra good game against milan. Where was this lazzari lol? Also that means this guy cant play under pressure, if he knows he got eyes on him and therefore got stressed and play bad. Either way, lazzari isnt anywhere near milan calibre. So isnt that Poli. 90% of those who say his name, only want him… Read more »

And arguably Astori doesn’t play well under pressure either. Astori was the worst player for Cagliari… he should have put in a good performance… yet I’ve seen you call for his signing. I do like Astori, but he still has a lot he needs to work on. No, I’ve actually seen Poli play… and he’s always put in a lot of work. The guy has a high work rate… but for some reason Sampdoria stupidly preferred Fernando Tissone over him. Tissone is garbage. Poli has a lot of potential. Yes, we have to go all in the CL next year.… Read more »

about Poli, his top perfcormance is yet to see even though i dont think that he will join Milan as we need more experience player to win the UCL.. And poli is not even better than Merkel (so far), so there’s no reason to buy him.

While others have players lyk Kaka, Ozil,Messi,Rooney nd other sort of big names,, We need som1 very good @ dat role pls, I think KP Boateng is far mor beta dan Poli nd Lazzari,, so y bother abt dem

@ Shervin Bro chill out.. smoke one before u type.. We need players like Lazzari, low wage, a player who plays in less inportant game and accepts the bench. The whole squad can´t contain all champions, then we have to be Madrid who seem to have more money then air..:S Do you honestly think Lazzari is worse than Gattuso right now? We need to cut loose the dead meat, this sentimental thinking has brought us to were we are today. Gattuso (35 or whatever) who is a shadow of what he used to be, demands firstteam football..

We need to focus on getting the important players first, and then squad players later. And besides that, Urby Emanuelson is better and faster than Lazzari… so why be redundant? And you just compared Gattuso to Lazzari? What a bad comparison. The two players are nothing alike.

First of all gattuso and lazzari cant be compared as they are two different type of players on different position. And on gattuso, I can accept gattuso make a error, bad pass, miss the goal. Because gattuso is gattuso, he had his prime time with Milan, and hes beloved by every single milan supporter. Hes just a type of player you love. Lazzari on the other hand, who is alot younger and is like a captain for a team should be better. I couldnt accept lazzari if he makes bad passes or fail to read the game like he does.… Read more »

Urby is ok, no doubt. He´s an unpolished dimond, his tactical skills leave much to wish for though. If Allegri works his magic, then he´ll probably fight for a starting spot. I´m not saying that Lazzari is a man for the starting XI, he´s not that good, but good enough for as a squad member who plays a couple of game when the champions need to rest, that´s it. His type is needed. The comparision between Rino and Lazzari fair, they are the same type of player, run run run, with the difference that Lazzari has better feet. Poli right… Read more »

And Lazzari is more polished than Urby? How is that so? I’ve never seen Urby put in a bad performance this season. When he has played he’s been either decent or good… last game was very good. He has a lot of skills. I don’t see what he is lacking in tactical skills. Lazzari is just not great at all. Urby should play more next season if a starting player needs rest. No, Rino is a defensive midfielder, and Lazzari is a left midfielder. Lazzari can’t break up plays too and his defensive ability sucks. We want to replace Rino,… Read more »

If Milan wants to win again next year Serie A and Coppa Italia and Champions Leauge, Milan should get Federico Marchetti as second goalkeeper after Abbiati who had excellent season. Then they should get Giorgio Chiellini offer for him Cassano and Bonnera and some money and we could get him. In midfield we should bring Michaël Essien, we should sell Borriello and Sokratis and make an offer for Essien. And also we should get one another defence midfielder and he should be Sandro or Fernando or Moussa Sissoko, so we could offer Flamini and some money to bring one of… Read more »

Ok, he might lost the speed. But how about reading the game? How about standing in the right position? How about his defending quailities? Havnt you noticed when milan play, t.silva always stands behind nesta. Ready to defend or help if something gets wrong. Nesta therefore doesnt need to have super legs.

Chiellini has been mediocre for Juventus though.

And Giovinco? No thanks. He’s a player that is not that great. He’s never really convinced. And it would be disrespectful to Cassano to get rid of him so fast. Why?

And Marchisio just signed a contract extension. He’s mediocre too. Don’t want him either.

I don’t know you notice how easy it is for a player like Van Bommel to tackle Giovinco to the ground. We crushed Parma this season, and Giovinco was totally invisible. Marchisio isn’t coming to Milan. He’s crap just like the rest of that Juve team. The only player I do like is Chiellini, and he’s going nowhere. But even lately he hasn’t been great.

Juve has given up 2-0 leads three times this season.

Cassano is going nowhere.

Thiagoooo Silvaaaaa! Yeah baby thats more like it. Best defender right now! Last week’s matchup just proved that we dont need Lazzari because we have got Emanuelson. Urby was definitely playing his best game so far in Red and Black jersey. Lets admit it guys, Astori isnt a Milan quailty just like I said about Lazzari before. Pato made him look like a looney that night. We have got Mexes which I believe was again a smart move by Mr. Galliani.

Don’t worry about Astori not being Milan material just because he got owned by Pato. I remember very clearly how Pato has destroyed Mexes a couple of times in last 2 seasons, so one bad night for Astori (when also his whole team, with few exceptions was terrible) is no biggie.

Fantasy football!

We are not getting Marchisio for the last time! He’s an average player not great at any one particular thing! He renewed until 2016 for Juventus! They are not going to let him go.

And Lass.. there is a reason why Mourinho played Pepe in midfield… he didn’t trust Lass to do the job. Lass has zero technique… the guy really is mediocre. We want a great DM then lets get Witsel. He’ll be cheaper too.

Pato is Brilliant, I think Astori could become a better defender at Milan. It’s not time to rule him out.

huh lass is mediocre? I dont think so giancarlo, have u seen how he bossed the midfield in barcelona (2nd leg cham leag) and he put khadera on bench and the reason y pepe was choosen over lass to play in the middle is because mourinho is a very defensive choach and in order to get a clean sheet he would do anything even field 10 Pepes if he could

I’m hearing we just placed a bid for Kwadwo Asamoah in the range of 10 million euros plus two young players (potentially Strasser and Merkel on co-ownership). Asamoah is a special player… the guy has major technical skills.
