MILAN KEEP loaning out players and Valter Birsa & Vergara will play for Chievo and Avellino respectively next year.
Filippo Inzaghi, who will be presented to the press today (Thursday) at Casa Milan, doesn’t want (or need) a large squad for the 2014/15 season and Adriano Galliani is working to trim the number of men that will be at Pippo Inzaghi’s disposal.
Marco Amelia, Bakaye Traoré, Bartosz Salamon, Urby Emanuelson, Antonio Nocerino, Ferdinando Coppola and Ricardo Kaka will not be in the squad next season among others. Yesterday the Rossoneri sold two more players on loan.
“A.C. Chievo Verona have communicated the addition of Valter Birsa to their squad on a one year loan,” a statement on acmilan.com read on Wednesday. Birsa joined Milan from Genoa last summer in exchange for Luca Antonini but Inzaghi doesn’t seen the Slovenian as part of his project for the next term. Birsa will return to Milan once his loan spell there ends.
“A.S. Avellino have communicated the acquisition of Jherson Vergara on a one year loan,” another statement on the Milan website read yesterday. The 20-year-old didn’t play any matches for Milan last May and he wasn’t part of the plans at Parma where he was on loan either from January. The defender will be hoping for better luck at the Serie B outfit A.S. Avellino 1912 who finished in 11th place in the 13/14 season. Just like in Birsa’s case, there is no buy-out clause included in the deal.
The transfer of Alessandro Matri to Genoa should be made official either today or tomorrow as he will have the medical check-ups on Thursday. It’s also a simple loan with Milan reportedly paying €0.9 million of his €2.5 million yearly wages.
