Official: Milan sign Niang from Caen


MILAN HAVE beaten everyone for the signature of the young striker, who has already put pen to paper.

The M’Baye Niang saga has come to an end as after the striker appeared to be close to the English Premier League, the player has officially signed a contract, linking him to the Italians for the next 3 years.

Milan had a bid failed for Niang as Stade Malherbe Caen didn’t agree to loan the teenager. Milan proved to be keen on signing Niang and vice President Adriano Galliani flew out to France yesterday to seal the deal.

Milan-Kaka: Negotiations are blocked – again

Caen confirmed on their official website today that Niang, who arrived with Galliani to Milano last evening, has signed a three-year deal with the Italian giants and have also wished him success in his new club and in his personal life. Niang spent four years at Caen in the youth and first team, debuting at the very young age of 16.

Niang is in fact the youngster player to debut in the history of Ligue 1. He scored five goals in this competition but he’ll now be trying his luck in a new league with the seven-time Champions League winners. Galliani confirmed yesterday that Niang will be part of the first team and not the Primavera squad. Milan paid a fee of €1.7 million (some sources claim it’s €2 million) plus add-ons to sign the 17-years-old.

Niang is not the only striker Milan have signed today, as they have also secured the services of Bojan Krkic (22 today) who spent the last season at Roma where he didn’t experience much of a success with Luis Enrique and was left out of favour for Zdeněk Zeman.

Benvenuto Niang!

very nice!


Hope they gets much playing time. Now the DM and a central Defender Galliani

Dare forza

I wonder were milan will be at the time this young players will start picking up, maybe close to relegation


Just like everyone is saying, get us the DM we need and if Mexes leaves Mbiwa….


bojan is over player now/ loan+ buy out clause


great signings!


If we get Diarra or another good DM then against Bologna this how I would like to see us start:
Milan XI (4-3-3)Abbiati-Abate-Acerbi-Zapata-Antonini-Montolivo-Diarra-Boateng-Bojan-Pazzini-SES


have milan bojan


Welcome to the king of trophies. Hop he wil hv more playing time nd score goales 4 us. Galliani mor is needed forza milano


Galliani must sign a central midfielder,attacking midfielder and a CB now…
Luca Cigarini for CM..Yanga-Mbiwa for CB…and Gaston Ramirez or Juan Iturbe for AM spot…how about a formation like this…



Though I feel that we already got enough players from Ligue 1, a great surprise I am dreaming of is M’Vila and Mbiwa to Milan before the end of this Mercato(Mexes out).


Radja Nainggolan and Mexes stays.

Pa ibra

nice move Niang. if Boajan will be leaving after a season then not a nice move. but atleast players are popping up. forzaa Milan


After the samp disaster it looked as tho Allegri could be either very dumb or just trying to be too clever and it seems that he tried to be the latter as what I think he tried doing is playing a 4-3-3 with Kpb being the false nine. This would explain why Robinho an SES kept going out wide and we had no target man in the box. I dont get it, why play the 4-3-3 with a incapable false nine in the form of Kpb?? This at least gives me some hope as to hopefully believe that Allegri is… Read more »


Yeah,zapata acerbi become useless because allergi choices the bad combination, yepes and bonera… He lost his mind maybe the ball hits allergi’s head when training….


Great signings hope they perform well,galliani pls make another bid for kaka and a dm.


Gud news

Rico Milan

bojan, niang, pato, acerbi, de sciglio, gabriel, el sharaawy, valoti, carmona…. wooow

in addition we should sign poli, yanga mbiwa
and bring back merkel + santon in january


Throw in Astori and Rossi. Sell Mexes and Robinho.

afeez olawale

thanks galiani,evry sweet fruit must surely dificult 2 get,witout sum 1 like casano,kaka,iniesta,cazorla all dis strikers are useless,pls we need kaka or young talented MUNAHIN of spain.forza milan


Benvenuto M’Baye! Tutto il meglio!


I feel it’s weird that Acerbi didn’t play against Sampdoria as he really was good in the pre-season, not special but good and promising!!!

Hope he and Zapata and later Mbiwa can form three good Milan quality CBs for the future.


i’m not a fan of bojan, as i think he is too weak 4 serie a, but i surely do wish him d best. I still think we need some1 more clever than kpb in d trequarti. Not necesarily kaka, as in all fairness to G, he is too expensive. May be some1 4rm d primavera will do d trick. Patience my fellow milanisti, patience. Forza milan!

Moin A.M.A

Allegri landed a weak defense against Sampdoria because he wanted to lose the first match and, forced Galliani to make some quick, unknown and useful signings for the season. Which is now in progress. Hope for some incredible signings at the end of the market.


Bojan a boy who showed nothing in barça and nothing in Roma is a great buy?

Do not make me laugh.


I hear we’re been offered caroll for €3m loan deal with an option to buy for €17m from liverpool.I want to know who’s more obsessed with huge strikers between Galliani and Allegri?
I can imagine allegri is still hunted by the ghost of ibrahimovic…
And we’ve also been offered palombo,is that a combative player allegri dies for?


good signing from galliani plz we still need replace for pato


Benvenuto Niang! I hope you get your shot, I know you can impress and make a real name for yourself!

roy milan

Hallo, I am from indonesia
sell pato and robinho………..
buy diarra (DM), yanga mbiwa (CB) and Oribe Peralta (striker from mexico)

I think montolivo is a playmaker, so put him as a cm not as dm or anchor…..

forza milan
