Galliani: “Cassano asked to leave Milan”

102

ADRIANO GALLIANI confirms there are negotiations in place with Inter over a Cassano-Pazzini swap.

The rumours regarding an exchange between Antonio Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini are now confirmed as Adriano Galliani reveals the player has handed in a request to leave the club this summer.

Milan have already sold Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain so Cassano will be the third ‘champion’ to leave. Galliani confirms there are negotiations with Inter over the 30-year-old.

Cassano-Pazzini exchange edges closer

“I can see the people following us are more interested in the market than the Berlusconi Trophy,” Milan Vice President and CEO Galliani said after the game. “There are two weeks left in the market, we’ll see what happens. We’ll talk with President Berlusconi and Coach Allegri, consider things and make a decision.

“There are negotiations in place, there is no doubt about that, and we will see. As with all negotiations, they can conclude positively or negatively. I will not deny something is stirring.” Milan President Berlusconi decided not to comment on this piece of exchange, saying “I know nothing about it.” What clear is that Cassano, whose career could’ve been over if it wasn’t for Milan and their doctors, wants to leave, and fast.

“Antonio has asked to leave and be transferred,” Galliani added to Milan Channel. “The most likely hypothesis is that of an exchange. We’ll see how it ends.” The swap would include Pazzini and Cassano who played together at Sampdoria and were a great striking force. They are both unhappy at their clubs.

There seem to be confusion over who gets money plus a player in the media but it appears that Milan will have to give Inter Cassano plus cash for Pazzini. Milan’s fans meanwhile, feel let down by Fantantonio.

milan should try juves 3-5-2. bonera, zapata, acerbi and the defense. for the wings we have in abate and emanuelson very good players. in the defensive midfield should be monto and nocerino with boateng in front of them supporting robinho and pato

Milan and inter have agreed and we are paying 7million euros to Inter to get Pazzini. Inter paid 18million euros to Sampdoria in 2011 for Pazzini while Inter a looking to get 12Million euro out of the 18 therefore Milan are offering Cassano for 5million.
Since “HE” asked to be transfered, we have no option and Pazzini is way better than Borrielo.

milan should get Kolarov from Man.city; get a central back; get Dzeko; and Sneidjer or Kakà…… I am not sure i wil sit to watch any of Milan’s game all season, this reminds me of the season we didn’t qualify for d champions league under Ancelloti………. As for Cassano, he is so sad at d way Milan does’nt care about d players and fans…… Every team seems better than Milan right now, 1 cant even compare Milan’s player to that of Chelsea, Madrid, Barca, PSG, Man U, ManCity, Bayern M, even Dortmund, Valencia, Tottenham, players prefer these teams to Milan… Read more »

If this happens, we need to gamble and sign Rossi (even though we will have to wait for him to get back to fitness). Then we’ll have two main strikers in Pato and Pazzini, and two supporting strikers in Robinho and Rossi. Plus there is also SES.

Yes, with Cassano leaving, signing Rossi is understandable, but I’m pretty sure he’ll join us in january, even though I’d like him right now. Rossi and Yanga-Mbiwa are must signings for us. Even if it’s now, january or next summer, both have to join us. Especially Yanga-Mbiwa. And apparently Strootman is set to join us next season as well according to some reports. But right now we need Kaka, in this transfer market. I’m not overly optimistic for this season, but if we get these players, I’m sure we’ll be much much much better the season after! Plus De Sciglio… Read more »

I believe Rossi, Yanga-Mbiwa and Strootman will do very well for Milan. The more I think about it though, re-signing Kaka appears to based more on sentiment – maybe even Berlusconi’s vanity. I really love Kaka to bits. He is a great guy with an amazing personality but I’m not sure if he is still capable of playing at the high level he was at 3 years ago.
Whenever I think of Kaka’s proposed return, I am reminded of Sheva’s disastrous return and I would hate Kaka’s legacy to be tarnished.

I belive so too! And I think they would be great players to carry on our legacy. But you have to remember, the thing with Sheva was, he didn’t play well with Chelsea, but Kaka, whenever he’s played has done very good with Real Madrid, so I don’t think he would share the same faith as Sheva. But even if he may not have the same speed, to have Kaka back as our trequartista, even 1t 80 % or even 60 % of his full capacity is a huge asset to us, because Boateng has been awful as trequartista and… Read more »

i hear that mesbah is on the verge of joining palermo, and that we’re back in negotiations for niang. apparently both deals could be announced today. btw anyone know what happened during the meeting with b&g&allegri yesterday?

this is a very bad trade. milan would lose only player who can make a final pass towards goal, the rest are useless in that department. maybe he is not a great runner in the team, but he is a wizard with ball, can creat chances for others. if we lose him, and we probably will, milan is in the dark as far as imagination is concerned.

If Cassano doesn’t want to be at Milan, then let’s let him go, but I don’t see why Milan should pay extra for Pazzini. The amount Inter paid for him is their problem.

Breaking News: Real Madrid offer Kaka to Manchester United on loan to make room for Luka Modric. What the hell. He cant be loaned to milan because we dont want to pay his salary so Real goes and gives him away to man u. Wake up Berlusconi before we place mid table and get eliminated in the group stage. I actually hope we draw real madrid or barca in the group stage again just so ppl can see how far below these teams we really are. Cassano leaving too leaves us with absolutely no creativity whatsoever brutal

We can’t be drawn with them, because we are back in Pot 1 (together with Real, Barca, ManU, Chelsea, Arsenal, Bayern and Porto). That means we should get an “easier” group stage this year.

constant as our new left-back. And an additional midfielder shud b signed to replace him. If cass leaves it opens d way for rossi in jan.n pazzini is nt dat excellent either bt we have too many supporting strikers at d moment(robi, cassano, elsharawwy, even pato prefers to play outside d box, n then kaka if or when he comes.) it will be nice to have another box striker, (n i dn’t knw abt u buh for me any1 is beta than borriello coming back. Dats my worst nightmare.)

Sooo Mourinho is playing ultimate troll with Milan..he obviously still loves inter so why would he strengthen their direct rivals. If Amelia goes to tottenham i couldn’t care less since he’s paid way too much to be a POOR back up keeper. As long as Gabriel is 2nd choice and not this pazzagli guy(not impressive at all). A mexes – bojan swap isn’t happening due to the fact that 1. It only benefits milan and 2. Barca still has a buy back clause agreement with Roma. Niang could join and if we don’t manage to sign a striker before august… Read more »

Kaka won’t go to Man Utd.it”s just media/madrid made up stories.1st of all Man U already bought RVP&Kagawa so w they Won’t need Kaka.Where would Kaka fitted in 4-4-2 Man Utd?2nd is Kaka monstrous Wages 10M net.with England taxation system which even higher from Italy.It doesn’t make sense Man U will pay that kind of money for a player who definitely warm up their bench.Eventually Madrid will loan Kaka to Milan(paying some of Kaka wages) after Modric officially announced unless they wanna see Ozil&co asking for a payrises with the same amount of Kaka who definitely just back up players… Read more »
