Milan have been known for their last minute signings over the years. However, this transfer window has ended and no great signing has been made. It only witnessed two signings Kaka and Alessandro Matri. Let’s be frank they are no big signings in terms of what is needed, by age perhaps.
With all due respect to Kaka, I believe his footballing days are over. He has spent way too much time on the bench and he is no longer the 2007 Kaka; he’s become the 31 year old Milan legend and is not a player.
Even though his arrival has brought joy to thousands of Milanista I think he isn’t the type of player we need now, an attacker, especially not an old one and my deepest fear is that he is going to be a flop like Andriy Shevchenko in the 2008-2009 season when he returned to Milan and failed to score a single league goal. While Alessandro Matri was our ‘great’ coach’s idea, I believe it was a complete waste of money. Instead of signing a much needed defender or midfielder, positions in which massive flaws have been witnessed last year and in this season’s first game against Verona, Milan opted to sign the 29-year-old for €11m while such money could have been spent on Eriksen for example, who moved for €13.5m, or Dedé.
Even though I have immense respect for both players, this is a tough love situation. Now don’t get me wrong they might be good signings and help us reach the top 3 spot but they are not what’s best. In these tough economic times Milan should be wiser with their money and spend it on what is really needed, which I can tell you is not an attacker. What do you think?
