Cesena interested in Zaccardo, Matri-Vrsaljko to be exchanged?

45

CESENA ARE looking into the option of loaning Cristian Zaccardo and Andrea Petagna, while Genoa want Ale Matri.

Milan certainly won’t be needing more than 24-25 players in the squad next season (including the goalkeepers) as they only have Serie A and the Coppa Italia to play for and they are interested in cutting down on the number of squad members.

The Rossoneri have already made progress on this front, with Antonio Nocerino, Kaka, Bakaye Traoré, Urby Emanuelson, Marco Amelia, Bartosz Salamon leaving (Alex, Menez and Agazzi have been brought in) and the trend is set to continue.

Official: Nocerino joins Torino on loan
Juventus lead the Iturbe race, Milan-Juve also battle for Vrsaljko

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Cristian Zaccardo, who in the recent weeks has been approached by the Turkish Balikesirspor but Cesena are also interested in signing him. The newly-promoted side would like to have Zaccardo loan. They’ve already admitted that they are interested in loaning Andrea Petagna; Petagna also attracted interest from Latina.

The story on La Gazzetta dello Sport (screenshot)

It’s also written on today’s edition of Gazzetta that there is an idea of swapping Alessandro Matri and Šime Vrsaljko. Matri was bought just last summer from Juventus in a deal worth €11 million (to be paid over 4 years) but he was less than impressive to say the least for the Diavolo are they want to get his wages off the books. Adriano Galliani and Enrico Preziosi are set to spend the weekend together and they will reportedly discuss the two players and the possibility of a swap deal.

Meanwhile, Kaka spoke about Robinho and a possible future for Binho in the MLS: “I haven’t spoken to Robinho recently, but I do think he’ll be one of the next players to receive an offer from MLS.” The same Orlando are supposedly interested.

Matri-Vrsaljko swap would be great deal for Milan. I’m from Croatia and I have been watching Vrsaljko while he was in Dinamo Zagreb. Guy has great physical abilities and his technique is much better than Abate’s. Still has a lot of space to improve since he’s just 22.

With him on the right side and De Sciglio on the left we would have two great fullbacks for the next 10 years.

Fingers crossed for this deal to happen.

I’m also form croatia, and i can completely agree with your opinion about Vrslaljko, but in current situation i believe there are much more important issues that we have to solve rather then our RB. Vrasaljko is quite good, but firstly we need to sort out our midfield and our CB’s. And of course, get rid of all of that dead weight in our current squad.

And all this time I thought I was the only Cro here lol
We have many issues to sort but letting go of some players has been a decent start.
We need Rami back, i know he is not world class but he was better than any of our defenders last year.

Možda u obrani trenutno, ali u napadu je Vrsaljko puno opasniji. Iako nije teško imati bolji centaršut od Abatea 🙂

Loan deal for Zacca? It’s much better if we can let go of players on a permanent basis…however, what matters is cutting the squad size I suppose.
Matri-Vrasljko swap might be a good idea.

iturbe is good and i dont feel like 28 mil will be too much for a promising talent like him, considering how footballers are valued these days…luck iturbe is not owned by zamparini. with all that said however i dont believe milan are in the right condition to splash out 25 mil on a single player. it must affect other aspects. i’d rather 7 mil taarabt than 28 mil iturbe. it has nothing to do with iturbes talent as i mentioned earlier. its a shame we cant campete.

rami, taarabt, a versatile fullback, and a midfielder who can play football – banega or baselli… just someone similar to verratti… or verratti himself!!

Andrea Yarmolenko in my mind.

this is exceptionally good news, matri should be swapped asap with this guy and zaccardo should leave as well. Vraslkjo and abata can vie for rb spot and also give each other cover. While MDS can be first choice lb, constant can back MDS up in matches that dont mean much to milan so that MDS can get proper rest. Think we should go for Ochoa soon, hes a free agent whos had a decent world cup and could replace abbiati. Keep agazzi as third choice while loaning out gabriel.

if this deal happens and we can get ochoa, milan will have a solid defensive lineup for the next 2 years:

MDS/Constant====Rami/Zapata====Alex/Mexes====Abate/Vrsalko

in absence of monty the midfield would like

Dejong/Muntari========Cristante/Poli=====Honda/Saponara

Attack would be
el sha/menez=====balo/pazzo/=======taarabt/cerci?/iturbe?

Gk could either be abbiate or Ochoa, think we should be able to do well with this basic team. After getting this team i think we should focus on promoting more players for our youth team to play and provide cover for our first team

Buy rami and sell mexes over zapata. Zapata was quite good last year but when Seedorf came he didn’t prefer him. He’s having a really good world cup as well.. Plus mexes wagers r a lot higher and he’s older

Sorry to break the ice guys but Iam sure we would not sign iturbe. This is because we could not even agree to sign taarabt for only 7 mil. What make s u think milan will spend 25 mil for iturbe. Look here folks we must face reality Galliani is only good at signing mediocres like essien muntari birsa etc. We as fans must force Galliani to resign or force berlusconi to sack him if Milan does not build a good squad. Just like Liverpool got rid of Hicks and Gillet, we can also do same for Galliani

Haha nisam znao da ima hrvata na ovom blogu, great to see some Croatians here! 😀

I’d rather see someone like Santon on the left and MDS on right, but Vrsaljko is great defensively and he can improve a lot in the attacking area, definitely better solution then Abate whose defence performance is decreasing in last two seasons.

In my opinion, we shouldn’t be looking to loan any of our “dead weight”. We should only loan youngsters who may not get much playing time next season. I want zaccardo/nocerino gone permanently. But if loaning them is the only option, I guess it’s better than nothing.

I wish milan inserted an option to buy in the Nocerino loan deal. We do not need him. Paying mediocre players is why Milan remains a joke among big clubs

Mino Raiola has suggested another of his agent,Leroy Fer,to Milan.The central midfielder who uses both foot is currently in the Dutch World Cup Squad and could leave Norwish on a cut price deal since they are relegated from the English Premier League.

What id like to see now is the Rami-deal finally wrapped up, abate sold to PSG for which money we buy a decent left or right back depending on how De Sciglio feels about playing LB. Then offload Constant, Zaccardo, Bonera, Mexes, Birsa, Robinho, Niang and Matri and raise as much cash as possible. Loaning players like Zaccardo is fine, keep loaning them until their contracts expire as they do not command a noteworthy transfer fee anyhow. Save their wages. If there are buyers, raise funds where possible and make it clear that staying at Milan to keep cashing the… Read more »

You guys won’t believe what I came across this morning…. Wait for it.. Wait for it…. Wait for it…. (((((BOOM))))) Matri: “The pre-season will be very important for me. I want to give a good impression to the management, Inzaghi and the fans.” How dare you Matri? How dare you??? Which fans is he talking about??? Maybe Juventus fans.. Matri is a TROLL…. looooool

I think a fee around 30m is too big for Iturbe.. I d prefer to go around 20 for Griezman and buy a GK and two defenders(maybe Perin,Doria, Vrsalijko)

From what I’m hearing milan want to swap matri and niang for perin and vrsaljko. Thatwould actually be fine for me.
For r I would love to see either Cerci taarabt Shaqiri or griezmann. Honestly forget about iturbe he’s not worth it. Perin would be fantastic but if we can’t get him I would like to see Ochoa.

If Galliani would pull that off…wow. I’d be speechless.
Completely agree with you about Iturbe, think it’s too much money to spend on him, would also rather prefer Cerci or Griezmann. Shaquiri would be fine but, Cerci and Griezmann seems more at our price range, and even though I’d prefer Taarabt over Iturbe, I prefer the others I mentioned more than him as well, haha.

A little off topic, but have anyone read an interview with Massimo Oddo from a few weeks back? He was on loan at Lecce, when Muriel and Cuadrado were playing there.
He said something like “I saw the potential in them, so I suggested the players to Milan. Who they ended up with? Mesbah.” Pretty much sums up the state we’ve been in during these past couple of years right?
