RICCARDO SAPONARA is still wanted on loan at the club that he played for in Serie B.
With Riccardo Montolivo injured for the next few months, Milan are very light in midfield and for that reason Inzaghi has decided to put Riccardo Saponara in a wide-midfield role instead of playing him in the winger / behind the forwards.
Sapo showed some promise during the pre-season games but like every other player on the squad didn’t play too well against Olympiakos, Manchester City and Liverpool.
However, Empoli are reportedly still interested in signing the player. Sky Italia is suggesting that Empoli have already made several attempts to take the player on loan and could make another one this month. Saponara is expected to start on the bench today against Chivas Guadalajara (there won’t be an official line-ups and chat post for this game on the site tonight).
Meanwhile, Sassuolo are linked with a move for Michael Agazzi and their coach Eusebio Di Francesco suggested that Agazzi has the “certain characteristics” to replace the injured keeper Gianluca Pegolo. Milan are trying to sign Diego Lopez.
