Official: Milan sign Traoré and Montolivo

39

AC MILAN have officially confirmed they have signed Bakaye Traoré and Riccardo Montolivo.

Milan have already announced on these signings but now the two players have put pen to paper, becoming the first two to join the Rossoneri in the summer transfer window. Both players arrive on a Bosman basis.

il Diavolo are working to refresh the ranks after some veterans that played a key part for Milan announced they’ll hang up their red & black boots and Milan’s rejuvenation projects continues with Traoré and Monty.

El Shaarawy keen to stay and improve
Reports: Ibra considers Milan exit

“AC Milan signed Bakaye Traoré until June 30, 2015 and with Riccardo Montolivo until June 30, 2016,” Milan announced on Thursday. Traoré confirmed his move to Milan two weeks ago. His contract with Nancy was due to expire. It’s been known for months that Montolivo will join Milan after his Fiorentina deal ends.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri has already revealed he’ll use Montolivo – 27 – in the deep-lying playmaker role, while Traoré will be used as a side-midfielder. Both players are versatile and can play a few roles.

Benvenuto al Milan, Bakaye e Riccardo!

guys we should sign Tranquillo Barnetta from bayer leverkusen, this guy ist just 27 hast an italian passport and can speak italian…..he has also international experience and the best thing ist he is for free…

still, it is not impressive for me. they came for free. berlusconi may has spent lots of money for milan but i still believe that milan don’t have enough money for signing a world class player for the next season. wish u all the best riccardo & bakaye.

I soo agree there! I also hear Barca want Jodi Alba meaning Adriano might be available so Galliani should make a move there too.

montolivo is great news because now we have someone that can serve our strikers with great passes so ibra doesn’t always has to go down in com position

according to milannews and corriere, galliani set sight on Jan Vertoghen (ajax captain ), i think if we can make a move for him, Thiago Silva and Vertoghen will make the best duet CB! i believe vertoghen can replace nesta perfectly. My dream for milan signing next, would be:

JAN VERTOGHEN and ASTORI / OGBONNA / ACERBI / GRANVIQST
GANSO (SWAP FOR ROBI)
STROOTMAN

If Ibra leaves, then we can go for Van Persie

Vertonghen has also said that if Milan come for him then there’s no way he can say no. Would make perfect sense to sign him. Vertonghen & TS33 would be perhaps best defense in world. Would be true heirs to Nesta and Maldini.

Spurs offered 10mil for him, Ajax wants 16mil. Milan wouldn’t even be prepared to offer 10mil. Dream on…

Yup true say there. Best bet for us would be one of Acerbi/Astori considering that we only go for cheap or free options, and not to forget they are both Italian which I prefer especially if they are to be to the heir of legendary Nesta.

Sell Ibrahimovic to Mancity and get us teves & Baloteli in exchange. Then get us Nuri Sahin & Acerbi and we are through for next season. With Baloteli & Tevez, our attack would be very competitive and all the attackers would do well and fight for place thereby having more options in cases of injuries and fatique. The team will also have flexibility in formations & lineups as we can play 4-3-1-2, 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-2-1-3, 4-5-1 etc as all the attackers are capable of playing as center-forwards and wing-forwards i.e Balotelli, Pato, Teves, Elsharawy, Robinho & Cassano. But with Ibra,… Read more »

What are they gonna prove. They are all mediocre players. Robinho misses clear chances. Pato is a weak and unreliable player who injures him self a lot. He has missed over 45 games because of his injuries. Cassano is still shady because of his heart. Maxi couldn’t even get a spot in Catania. A single game and you have figured all out. Don’t quit your day job. Sell Robinho to Santos, sell Pato to PSG Kick Aquilani Mesbah Taiwo Seedorf even Mexes. The dude gave FCB a free pass in CL for god sake. City will not give Tevez and… Read more »

Ted, actually the news said galliani already put eye on him and actually plan to make a bid. 16 mil isn’t that much I guess, I know we re not in good financial, but not that poor I think. Considering good relationship between ajax and milan.

Let’s see until transfer windows closed. I still believe this milan will sped because they lost many talented players. And monty and traore comes for free. Remember when we re bashing management for bringing noone, 2years ago, yet they bring us ibra and robi. Just patient!
