Cagliari want Amelia, Milan on Marchetti?


MARCO AMELIA is wanted by Cagliari so Milan could make a move for Federico Marchetti.

Will Milan and Cagliari “swap” goalkeepers? According to the Rome sports daily, il Corriere dello Sport, the club from Sardinia is interested in the services of the Rossoneri’s second-choice ‘keeper Marco Amelia.

il Diavolo bought out Amelia, who played the 2010/2011 season on loan from Genoa as part of the deal to bring Kevin-Prince Boateng permanently to Milan, despite most of his performances were unconvincing.

Marchetti was a target of Milan before they closed the deal for Amelia. But if the 2006 World Champion leaves, they could make a move for Marchetti who was frozen out during the entire season by the club.

The only problem, however, is that Marchetti has already agreed to join Lazio – where he will be a first-choice goalkeeper following the expected departure of Uruguay’s Fernando Muslera to Galatasaray this summer.

That would be nice… I didn’t understand why we signed Amelia,he wasn’t Milan quality last season…


U dont need to be ‘Milan quality’ to be a 2nd goalkeeper……either of ’ems fine


Does anyone actually care about second-goalkeeper..?


Let’s face it, Abbiati is not getting any younger and Marchetti has shown glimpses of promise. I am all for him coming and learning. I think he has potential.


We need 2 care abt our 2nd choice since Abbiati is ageing…Amelia is nt Milan quality.

both Marchetti and Amelia isn’t Milan Quality, please sign another goalkeeper such as Handanovic, Diego Alves, Rene Adler or Martin Stekelenburg!


wtf! really, they are more like first choice goalkeepers, also they wont come cheap, if milan are gonna spend that much on a gk then it must be first choice, but i would hate to see abbiati on the bench cos he doesn’t deserve to stay on the bench cos look what he done last season, cos of him milan didnt allow the other teams to score that much goals and cos of that, which helped milan a lot to win Serie A league. So if i was the manager i would use Marchetti or Amelia as second choice, and… Read more »


Agreed.. but what you forgot to say is… spending big money on a goalkeeper really isn’t our concern. We have bigger concerns on getting midfielders…


Rene Adler and Martin Skelenburg are 1st-choice goalkeepers and will only come if Abbiati decides to step out or is happy with not playing


Swap them.

And no way will we get Adler or Stekelenberg to come to Milan and warm a bench. Marchetti will be a better second choice keeper.


True! Moreover when we are strong defensively and in midfield,our keepers would literally have little or nothing to do.Come to think of it,V.Valdes is not better than Abbiati or Amelia at that,but his team cover up his lapses n ‎​d̶̲̥̅̊ save he makes are what small keepers also can do.So,I agree with bolstering our midfield n other areas needed(substitutes cause of unforseen injuries).


Why are we even talking about this…We don’t even need a 2nd choice GK. Amelia is good. He did good in pre-season Vs Juve, he’s done pretty good when needed during the season. And he was amazing in the Last match Vs Udinese. Milan need to spend at least 30mil on the Midfield. We should get Astori, then our Defence will be sorted. Get a LCM and a RCM, then our Mid will be sorted. Maybe a CDM just in-case VMB needs rests and the Back-ups don’t do good. We need a AMF(Ganso hopefully). I would say that all of… Read more »


Victor Valdes of Barca isn’t as good as Amelia but wit a good team goalkeepers will improve, so i suggest we leave him and leave Marchetti aside, i dont see much confidence in him especially when he came in as a sub in the last worldcup,


Hey guys plz search this gkeeper.his name is alireza haghighi.he is just 22 and best keeper in iran league.plz search it


True! Marchetti is better than Amelia, but I sort of feel for the latter, since most of the games he screwed up in had Sokratis or Bonera in them! 🙂


We dont need silly Gks from Iran league :/


Ryan.sily is yourself.he is better than buffon&casilas&cech.first search then open ur lip


I would love to sign Steklenburg. He’s world class, easily a top 5 keeper in the world!
Abbiati is solid, but not good enough for the CL IMHO.


Next Year Salvatore Sirugu, hell yeahhh !!!!
